Is "naked, sword wielding" redundant?

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.

bigstoopidbruce: I'm sorry, I guess I would make a terrible cop. I see a naked, sword-weidling man who is driving around with an AR 15 or whatever it is, I'm not going to get involved in an hours-long stand off. I'd take the guy out. Might aim for the knees and see what happens, but I couldn't stand there for two hours watching the guy jibber and cavort like he has half a working brain.


Why not? Dude, that's going to be the funniest thing you're going to see all week!

Paperwork. Too much paperwork to shoot an obvious nutcase who asked to be shot.

RoyFokker'sGhost: True. You don't have many stories involving a naked loonie wielding a bec-de-corbin or glave-guissarme these days.


Even a flail or a holy water sprinkler!  Do Clerics never freak out, strip and threaten passers by?

Samurai swords are light, cheap and its easier to name the flea markets that don't carry them then ones that do.

Obscure polearms also seem to be neglected in the things-frequently-wielded-by-naked-folk category.

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.

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