    There is a sword epidemic on this Island . Time to ban all swords and knives over 4 inches long. The police should go door to door and seize these weapons . No one needs a samurai sword anymore . I have not seen a ninja on the Island for years .

      How exactly will banning certain items stop criminals - who by definition do not follow the law - from doing what they do? Your comment, while I'm guessing is well-meaning, is absurd.
