Several people have been injured after Sikh groups brandishing swords clashed at India's Golden Temple as special prayers were held to mark the deadly military offensive there in 1984. Reports said the fight at Sikhism's holiest shrine was over who would speak first at the ceremony and that a scuffle broke out over a microphone. Footage showed men running down temple steps lashing out with their swords. Reports said at least three people had been taken to hospital with injuries.

The savages!

We in the "Civilized" world of America would have used our guns and everyone in the room would be dead or wounded. But, our second amendment rights would still be intact!

Someday those poor savages will be advanced like us.

#3 That's why I use a sword cane.

One day when I save up the money I am going to get a good one. Either www.borispalatnik.com or more practical www.borispalatnik.com or maybe one of the others. Right now spending 600+ bucks is not in the budget. So I will have to live with my 45 dollar one with the cheap blade.

An armed society is a polite society ?

Nice canes Tao. I like the first one, but with the woman's face. The cane swords have many nice handles. I also like the elephant.

Thanks Bruce a lot of the handles won't work for me since I need it for support I have to go with the longer handle. I liked the cougar on there but not sure if all the detail might be hard on my hand if I put my weight on it.

Some day I'll have the money to spare.
