Ridiculous. Mere possession of an object does not automatically make it an offensive device when in close proximity to others because something bad MIGHT happen when it is used in self defense. This is the whole argument totalitarians use in a complete ban of firearms. This is just scaled to proportionality, it's essentially the exact same argument.

By the same rational should hate speech be illegal when you are able to have a bigger audience? And where does it stop, whats the scale for appropriate weapons within the scope of population? Who or what determines that?

balderdash.
