"Dear Home Secretary,
Reading the text of the new UK Offensive Weapons Bill, I welcome the legal 'defences' for the postage of bladed items to residential addresses, which are legally used in sports and historical re-enactment.
However, I was shocked to see not a single mention of antiques!
The antique arms and armour trade, including through auction houses such as Christies, is worth tens of millions of pounds a year and is of immense historical and cultural significance.
Traditionally, in UK law, antique weapons have been explicitly and specifically exempted from nearly all Offensive Weapon legislation since 1988.
Please reassure the antiques trade that you will be including exemptions/defences for antiques?
​The antique trade is dependent upon home delivery and many businesses are at stake.

Police Weapons - The Victorians - Part 1
Here we look at truncheons and in particular, a larger, heavier type of Victorian truncheon.
The UK's Home Office is soon to prohibit the postage of ALL 'bladed objects' to private residential addresses. Potentially that includes everything from nail clippers to fencing foils. In order to make the Home Office aware of the wide-sweeping effect that this might have on UK hobbies, sports and businesses, please sign this petition, in the hope that we can lever the Home Office into including either 1) suitable exemptions, and/or 2) postal/collection options which will actually work for lawful adults.
