    ok, aye then

    edit: wtf nay, thought more about it - why do we want MPs to bring weapons to Parliament?

    sorry, see edit
    I'm very disappointed in this lack of conviction

    We already have weapons there - the Black Rod carries a sword, as, I believe, does the Serjeant at Arms. The law applies only to those called to Parliament. Surely if some agents within Parliament are allowed weapons it is only right to allow MPs theirs!

    Well the new Libertarians certainly have a sense of humour

    Nay though, the Coming Armed to Parliament Act is a quirk that doesn't particularly hurt anyone and has been on the books for 704 years.

    Hmmm. Space Marine Terminators though

    How about this angle:

    It constitutes a restriction of religious freedom as it disallows Sikhs from carrying a kirpan :holmes:

    I think this is one of those symbolic laws which aims to show the nature of our democracy or some hippy b******s like that, that we don't kill our political opponents blah blah

    So nay.

    When one's opponents are so anaemic, one must sometimes take it upon oneself to do their job for them :mmm:
