Rejected petition Ban the import and sales of lethal weapons such as machetes and zombie knives

It is ridiculous that lethal weapons such as zombie knives and machetes can be legally imported and sold in the uk, provided that they include no images or suggestions that they can be used for violence. Deadly attacks are now a daily occurrence. Ban them immediately.
