yep, have a look at this:

24 A whip the lash of which is comprised wholly or partly of any form of metal.


Legally if you hit someone with a chain then you'll probably be charged with possesion of a prohibited weapon too.

That's the issue though, what makes an article a "weapon" is not what it is but how it's used. For example, an assault rifle hanging on a wall is an item of decoration while a pencil used to stab someone is a weapon.

11 A butterfly knife or any similar device.


What?! Does that mean its only illegal when used as a weapon, e.g threatening to hurt somebody?

Well then I don't know why they bother with a list, I wouldn't be surprised if you could beat some to death with your playstation controller

No, if it's on the list then it's on the list - but say you tied a nail to a piece of string, it could fall under the "whip the lash of which is comprised wholly or partly of any form of metal." but no one is going to prosecute you for owning it unless you hit someone with it.

LOL mate in some peoples hands just about anything is a weapon.
Our cops aren't too bad, every now and and again you get the ego power tripper but they are usually for the most part friendly guys n gals.....unless you are being freaking retarded and need the punishment.

I'd say they would have gotten a few people with some of those items ^ at the APEC summit last week. Some f&*k witt wanna-be hippy thats out to save the world was dumb enough to stab an officer with a dart or some thing and had a crow bar wrapped in newspaper..... so much for a peaceful protest!!!!!!
Sorry to b*tch but these doll bludging jerk offs are the first to critisise but have little idea on the whole concept that they are protesting about. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Ahhh that feels better

I think it's 20kg, but you put your foot under the suitcase and rest your foot on the side panel and it takes a good 5-10kg off :P
