UK to ban Samurai swords - beer bottles and cars next

From Samurai swords to be banned Breaking News News Telegraph:

"Last month, amphetamine addict Hugh Penrose was jailed for at least 19 years for hacking a 21-year-old woman with a samurai sword and then deliberately running her over.

In October, Bradley Moran was jailed for 17 years for murdering another man with a samurai sword following an argument in a nightclub."

"The Home Office now wants to ban their sale as part of a wider crackdown on knives and bladed weapons.

Carrying a samurai sword in a public place already attracts a maximum jail sentence of four years [emphasis mine]."

So why not ban cars and beer bottles? The UK is out of control in banning weapons. I'm sure the law-breakers will comply, eh?
