    Hi

    Could I ask you to include in

    5. Absolutely no discussion whatsoever about the possession or use of illegal or prohibited items of any kind. Be aware that the administrator of this forum will co-operate fully with any law enforcement agency into the investigation of any illegal activities, this will include the provision of any user information. Any posts deemed to infringe this rule will be stored for possible later use and the offender will be permanently banned and, if appropriate, law enforcement officials notified. BE WARNED!

    The word unlawful between "the" and "possession" on line 1, to read "the unlawful possession".

    The reason I ask is that I collect Military Knives amongst which are daggers, assisted opening knives and gravity knives, all of which are considered to be Prohibited Weapons, which can be lawfully owned provided certain requirements are met. Section 5 as is, is to the detriment of legitimate collectors.

    Regards John
    Collector
