I think if it was able to administer some deabilitating eletric shocks then we would be on to a real winner.

If anything Japan is notorious for being relatively safe.

Actually, the answer to school invasions is not primarily the sasumata. It is the strict gun control first and foremost that allows them to even consider such a defense.
Did you'll read about the stabbing 'rampage' that happened yesterday in Tokyo? Seven dead and 'a dozen' wounded. This happened in a commercial area on the street.
I wonder who is trained to use the sasumata (students, teachers?) and how they'd stand up against the chaos and panic that would ensue in such a situation. Better something than nothing I guess.

There's rough parts of the Japan, but by and large it's basically the safest country I could think of. The crime there is very low, the prosecution rate is incredibly high (lol confessions through torture), etc etc.
It's just that when someone does commit a crime, they really fucking snap. Examples I've heard of are a kid dismembering his sister and carrying her head in a plastic bag when he turned himself in, a very young girl throat-slitting another, people committing Seppuku, etc. It's one of those places where the crime's low, but when they do it, they really fucking do it.Lord Krishna said: I am terrible time the destroyer of all beings in all worlds, engaged to destroy all beings in this world; Of those heroic soldiers presently situated in the opposing army, even without you none will be spared.
