    ... and yet carrying an umbrella will NEVER BE ILLEGAL, just like a cane. There are many factors that come into effect upon actually using something as a weapon. Your cane/umbrella will NEVER be concealed. You won't look like some criminal who's trying to get away with hiding something (overtly at least). That'll go a long way in the eyes of the law, trust me.

    And yeah about this, I heard somewhere that obama would like to have people be prosecuted for using a gun in self defence IN THEIR OWN HOMES..... that is just rediculous. Not saying that's 100 percent reliable though. I also doubt he'd get such a law passed.
    He definitely voted for it, along with a whole mess of ignorant bullshit laws. Just wait for what he (& that scumbag Biden, the author of the Clinton Gun Ban) try to pull in office, if enough ignorant shits come out of the woodwork to vote this time 'round. You better get used to using umbrellas and canes and rolled up newspapers 'cause nothing else will be legal.

    Okay, regarding that collapsible tai chi sword, it's neat and all, but;
    1. Is it legal in canada? Seems like one could claim it's a tool for fitness or something, which it is.
    2. Is it effective as a weapon? Looks light and flmsy, but hard to tell from only the image.
    3. Why should I support Tai Chi? **** Tai Chi?

    I received one of the collapsible tai chi swords as a gag gift from a friend who had vacationed in Hong Kong. They're actually pretty clever gadgets, but not intended as weapons; they're purely practice swords with hollow"blades" that telescope in and out. The idea is you can fold them up to carry them conveniently and unobtrusively to/from your training.

    Those Tai Chi swords sting like a bitch if someone whips you with them. Other than that, pretty useless. And that noise they make is fucking annoying.

    That's ridiculous. Where did this happen? You have a link to a news article?
    Yep, heres a few that relate to the matter, although some deal with other similar instances as well:

    So fucking dumb.

    I may be biased, but if you can find any FMA go for it. they way most styles are taught, you can use so many things as weapons that you don't need to carry anything. they generally teach realistic disarming techniques too.

    there are some scary fast old men in the philippines that are not to be trusted with a stick longer than 12". trust me on this.

    JJ, quit the anti-Obama rant. State and local law is what dictates what you can carry and what you can't. Unless you're transporting weapons between states, the feds have no say that.

    Seriously, for those who are upset about concealed carry laws and such, talk to your local representatives who serve in your state or local government, and explain your issues.

    Heller VS DC was about FEDERAL GUN CONTROL. Get a clue!

    Keep thinking that & see what happens. How do you think things would have gone if Heller VS DC had gone the other way? Get your head out of the sand, man.

    People - better yet - keep politics out of the MA forum?

    I mean - a lot of us don't really care, since we are not in your part of the world, anyway...

    for reals though, any federal law regarding carrying weapons (minus guns, as the constitution mentions them in the constitution) would be unconstitutional as it is not within the powers expressed within said constitution, so just give that law the middle finger and be on your way.:icon_thum
