Opposed to further proliferation of boards on general principle, there's too many already.

I also wonder what sort of person would be uncomfortable with swords specifically? Killing people with spears or machineguns is A-OK, but running them through with a sword is beyond the pale?

This swords board – will it cover daggers as well?

I believe this was not a serious poll suggestion. It was a reaction to the vitriol spewed over having a guns board. The wording echoes (if not downright copies) some of the justification of the guns board.

@20thmaine, that's the first thing that popped into my head as well.

If they outlaw swords, I'm in trouble.
And do light sabers and Nerf swords count? Because then I'm *really* in trouble.

Can we have a separate board for scabbards? ;-)

There is a guns board? Oh the horrors!!!!

I assume the discussions would be about Miniature swords?

Then will we need a Spears Board? And a Mace Board? And an Axe Board? Not to mention boards for any other number of weapons…

I'm going with NO.

Blackhorse – you left off the Halberd board!!!

The real question is how many Swiss Army knife boards do we need?
