Do you have any philosophical or spiritual views which relate to weapons? Do you own or have you ever owned any weapons?
I'm interested because I read a short time ago about Sikihism's religious obligation that its adherents carry daggers and thought about how that kind of thing has pretty much disappeared from Christianity or western society, I know someone who I was surprised owned a mace/morning star style weapon, had it in a closet near his front door were he kept his shoes and coats and who carried a pocket knife most of the time he was out of doors because he was perturbed by the idea that he could be killed randomly, like in a motoring accident or (this was during the troubles) bomb and would be unarmed when he died (I kid you not this was something that bothered him).
Myself I've never really be sure about it, I would like to own some sort of rack of swords or something like that in an ideal home/world.
Then again when I've travelled and seen weapons for sale I've thought some of them were ugly, violent and nasty looking things for ugly, violent and nasty purposes.
(I havent really considered firearms or guns when I posted this BTW).
