Banning Bushido


It's illegal to carry a sword in public in Great Britain. Still, the British government says there have been at least 80 serious crimes involving samurai swords in England and Wales in the last four years. So it plans to ban the sale of those swords. Those who break the law face up to six months in prison and a £5,000 fine. The law would exempt the expensive handmade swords favored by collectors.
