Turn your damn phone sideways when you take video. How hard is it?

And samurai dude looks to have been in the right, for once. Shame, I was hoping for a video of a douchebag getting tazered. Always puts a smile on my face.

david_gaithersburg: ZAZ: If he tried that on a train in Boston he'd be in jail for carrying a dangerous weapon in public.

Yes, we know, you people gave up your right to bear arms many years ago. Ironic considering such a place played a major role in our history.


Yes, who was that Massachusetts governor who signed the assault weapons ban, again?

Bedstead Polisher: Are Samurai swords that common? They seem to make an appearance in news stories quite often.


The Samurai sword is the AK-47 of the knife world, anytime a reporter sees anything bigger than a kitchen knife it is a Samurai sword in their minds, last year the local paper had a pic from the local ren faire showing people waiting in line with claymores, bastard swords and even a rapier, the headline "locals show off their samurai swords at charity event"

Eh in most states you can carry how ever the fark long of a fixed knife you want as long as its carried openly and not concealed (although if its concealed or folding it better be less than 4 inches ) , of course I don't think I'd want to walk around with a sword hanging off my hip, sounds like a good way to get shot by a nervous trigger happy cop

Gosling: Area Man is a famewhore. Every time anything happens anywhere, there's Area. It's like the asshole just follows around journalists and does shiat to get their attention. I'm sick of hearing about Area all the time. He's worse than the Kardashians.


You are so right. Every time I go to "The Onion", Area Man is up to something.

At any given time, I would say 35% of the adult population carries them regularly in the USA. They're easy to conceal, and quite deadly with the right training. Notice how nobody knew this guy was carrying until the moment he pulled it out? That's how it usually goes around here.

The same for openly carrying around a shotgun or AK-47 knockoff. Several lawyers told me it was legal but the cops might well shoot first and look up the law later.

There are an inordinate number of people walking around with samurai swords these days. Secret ninja invasion imminent?

You go, man, defend the Constitutional right to wield swords!

The guys down at the range in Dorchester would be interested to hear about your contentions, though.

Phoenix Arizona has light rail. Who would have guessed?

Does Sheriff Joe know about this and is he alright with it?

They used to have the same laws in Arizona. Now, it's quaint:
