When you ban the open carry of rifles in California, the nutcases start to carry swords.

/Wait. I'm OK with that: Bullets are harder to outrun.

If we want to get rid of mass shootings seems all we need to do is ban clothes. Which would also do wonders for the obesity epidemic, really I don't know why the Nudist lobby isn't all over this.

Can't say for certain, but I'd be shocked if it's legal to carry a sword in public there either.

Years ago, there was an exception for "martial arts" swords, to allow for carrying them to and from class or something. Not sure if that's still the case. It might just fall under the general knife laws, which mostly say open carry of any fixed blade is legal.

I prefer my maniac swordwielders to be in metal bikinis.

Jeez.  I had an uncomfortably close connection to the Newtown thing (niece, she was not hurt).

I also personally encountered a hopped-up lunatic, in San Jose, just last September (nobody hurt then but it was very unsettling).  And it honestly makes me wonder if this is the same guy.

It's a small world after all.

Why is always a Samurai sword with the naked guys?  You never hear about a naked guy with Claymore, or even a Bastard Sword.  If I ever lose and run about the streets naked, I am taking a battle axe!  People will remember me if I have a battle axe.

The subject exited the vehicle naked and brandishing a large Samurai sword saying, "You're going to have to kill me" several times.

You don't want to die, cops shoot you dead. You want to die, they arrest you. Can't win.
