    Dangerous weapon? Allowed only while camping??
    Not in the UK and it's the UK we are talking about

    If camping is being done in a public area I would assume the camping knife would be illegal as well

    Self defense and possession of a weapon are different things

    Empty hand martial arts in the UK are very popular and from what I have read are practiced more realistically than in the U.S.

    No injuries. She was granted bail and allowed to go home t AZ as long as she promised to returned for trial. Self-defense seems to be illegal.

    But like so many malleable laws it's really up to the cops and prosecutors as to how they are applied

    Self-defense IS NOT legal in England..

    The home is no longer "your castle."

    The number of places to vacation is a shrinking world. About 30 states are worth visiting. World-wideI can't think of anyplace worth visiting.

    Well what do expect in a country where the capitol city (assuming London) has laws against pointy kitchen knives. I was told by my martial arts instructor more than 30 years ago that damn near anything could be used as weapon if you think about it...
