    The Japanese know how to do it:
    Having no destination, I am never lost.

    Assassination via sword. That probably didn't feel very pleasant.

    These swords should be banned or at least put a safety on'em.

    Banned now. I believe you can only have a) hereditary swords (which many families actually have) or b) dulled edge swords or c) a license for the real deal (eg. for people who practice "traditional" arts).
    In Japan, genuine edged hand-made Japanese swords, whether antique or modern, are classified as art objects (and not weapons) and must have accompanying certification in order to be legally owned.
    Ironically, when that assassination occurred, all swords were illegal iirc, but there were (are) hundreds around kept by right wingers. The love certain Japanese have for their swords dwarfs how Americans feel about guns.

    BTW, another angle of the attack:
    Having no destination, I am never lost.

    Hey, don't rag on whale meat. Got them through the post-WW II depression. Cheap, plentiful protein. You'd be hard-pressed to find a Japanese person over 45 who hasn't had whale meat.
