I can't believe this is true either. I thought it was just a cheezy joke off martial arts movies. A regulation like that is patently ridiculous. You can kill someone with a disposable pen - would you have to register that if you knew how to use it? I think they are winding you up.

(I was once told by a karateka he had a licence to 'kill people', but it turned out he was just referring to his insurance licence incase of death to a training partner!)
