You might want to start by learning what "doing research" actually means, then. Because this ain't it, bubba.
If I wanted to argue a position on gun laws I would've done it in the firearms forum. I was just pointing out what I know concerning that in the UK, not whether I agree or disagree with it and frankly, since I don't live in the UK, I don't care. Anyway, yes, you pointed it out quite well about what I meant when you mention laws for owning, buying, and using swords. Also, transporting swords and knives. Although I don't live in the UK I have visited and I do plan to visit more in the future and while I wouldn't bring a gun to the UK, I might want to bring some blades so I would want to know the legality concerning that.If you'd actually asked what the laws were on owning, buying and using swords here you would have had a greater chance of an answer but all you actually did was express an opinion masking any question you may have had, well either that or you were forming up for an argument on gun laws which you aren't going to get anyway.

That's quite simple, don't bring any 'blades' into the country, simple. You won't need them. You can also research why and the legality of carrying weapons.
