I've already bitched about the proliferation of swords in our already-violent country. These swords do not designate anyone as King, nor are they plus-anything against orcs or unicorns (Gygax, RIP). These swords are rarely used for good.
Sword nuts: I know you're thinking, "Hey! Swords don't kill people. Ninja assassins kill people. Besides, have you heard of a little thing called the Second Amendment?"
Well, fuck that. We don't need white trash heroes trying to go all Ghost Dog with a blade. Because when a man can't even watch ultra-violent pornography at top volume without facing the misdirected steel justice of his redneck neighbor, then our society is no longer free.
