Yeah, but the idea is about stopping the sale of them.
That will stop them getting into the hands of a criminal and thereby screwing with police.

that'll just force police to use shotguns and automatic rifles as standard issue pursuit weapons. no complaints here, you wanna be a crim? then forget civil rights, you're going down.

Yep thats right. The number of flak vests that made it onto the black market from the former Soviet Union has resulted in the invention of PDW's for defence forces (and police forces) for people like pilots etc. These are small compact submachine guns, like the MP7 or the Mp5 pdw, made to penetrate these vests.

It just would mean police would be carrying these alot more.

my high school electronic's teacher made a railgun that he told us about, seems though that it tended to wear out the armature quite quickly...

not sure how you'd go about with the legalities of this.. however for a high school project i made with some friends a trebuchet, that was fun... then i found out that would have been allowed to make a flux compression generator ( for research purposes only of course ) and i'm talking about a big one, with home ( with the help of school ) made explosives to set it off lol.

oh well 'd still try and make one, but then asio would be onto me for being a terrorist... its not like i'd put it in a public place and detonate it or anything ^_^, i'd just take it somewhere and see out how many houses/buildings/electrical devices it could take out...

If you were in charge of your own kingdom and you could make all the rules and you wanted to make things as easy as possible for your henchmen, wouldn't you ban kevlar vests?

Seems like any replica. Not too sure though.

What would the requirements be if I wanted to purchase Shurikens?

senario,

you go to murder someone and dont want to leave any evidence as forensics can trace a gun to the shells.

by catching the shells you essentialy make a murder more efficient

It's under the subheading of blades.
Basically you cannot make a blade and sheath look like an ordinary object.

Ie, can't twist the handle off your umbrella and then stab someone with an attached blade that hides in the shaft of the umbrella. No swordcanes...
Basically use your imagination and if you can effectively conceal the blade and handle inside another object and make it look like siad object it is illegal.

Would the phoneknife allow you to stab the person at the other end?
That would be cool.

Fireworks....
