No Bladed Weapons in UK ?

Somebody sent this to me. What was interesting is that the weapon uin question was inside the trunk of the car, not in the passenger compartment.


Police who searched a vehicle in a Guildford town centre car park discovered a machete with a 1.5 ft blade, Guildford Crown Court heard on Friday last week.

Grant Warden, 23, of Goldsworth Road, Woking, pleaded guilty to possessing an offensive weapon, the machete.

He was told by Mr Recorder Barry McIntyre: "It is difficult to separate your possession of this dangerous weapon from your involvement in drugs, but this is your first conviction for offences of this kind."

He fined Warden £500 and ordered him to pay £548 court costs. The machete was ordered to be confiscated.

Jessica Blakemore, prosecuting, said that at 3:48pm on March 3, police saw four people in the Leapale Road multi-storey car park in Guildford. They were walking from a snooker club and stopped at a Vauxhall Nova car owned by Warden.

Police searched that car and found a machete, with a 1.5 ft blade, in a wooden case. Warden was asked about the machete and said his brother had got it for him as a present after a visit to Jamaica. He had only had it for about two weeks.

He told police that his then girlfriend did not want the machete in the flat and so he had put it in the car boot and forgotten about it. It had been his intention to use it for ornamental purposes on the wall above the fireplace. His name had been etched on it.

Defence counsel, Richard Button, said Warden was "between homes" and that was why he had possessions, including the machete, in the car boot.

He had no intention of using it in any criminal activity whatsoever. It was to be used for purely ornamental purposes, and the irony was that he did not want the machete in the first place.

nova's are probably 2.5k-2.7k gestimate. not going to bother to roll through the web for exact numbers. just using the fact that his car could do more damage then the big knife yet they still let him drive that. sharing the irony i see. most sedans/coupes weigh around the 3k mark.

ah, but cars are not specifically built with the intent to eviscerate someone... granted they said the machete was a show piece and that machetes are typically used to cut down vegatation... but there is little vegitation to plow through in England.

People who have to actually live where there's a lot of plant growth would understand why outlawing machetes would be stupid. We have a bunch of wineberry bushes around our house, and if we don't cut them back some every summer and winter, they take over the entire yard. Machetes are pretty easy to use and low-stress to use, so are ideal for this kind of thing. Although, we also have some gangs around here that hide machetes in their pants legs, jackets, etc., so I can see why it would worry the police. Shouldn't be illegal to just own one, though.
