The Scottish Executive has come up with a plan to help prevent knife crime. The sale of swords is now banned, "unless sold for legitimate reasons". Selling swords is soon to become a lot more profitable in Scotland. Never mind that swords are not easily concealed and thus not the most popular bladed instrument to carry on your person.
Shops selling swords will need a licence, as will businesses dealing with non-domestic knives and other bladed weapons such as machetes.You see, says Mr. Kenny, the evil hetronormative capitalists who sell these instruments of destruction to otherwise innocent victims of the oppressed minority threaten the diversity of our multicultural ecology. But what Mr. Kenny and the Scottish authority fail to appreciate is that the mad quest for material gain makes it possible for poverty-stricken-activists to purchase swords to impale people for a crust of bread.
