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.

I feel like after this incident, he's earned enough respect to be referred to as Mr. Man.

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


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 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"

david_gaithersburg: 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.


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.

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

Yes. In his mind, the lighter, the better.

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.

Mangoose: Hiro?


Since then the Deliverator has kept the gun in the glove compartment and relied, instead, on a matched set of samurai swords, which have always been his weapon of choice anyhow. The punks in Gila Highlands weren't afraid of the gun, so the Deliverator was forced to use it. But swords need no demonstrations.

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

Ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side,
