Wear a sword on your belt in public people might look at you funny but what they'll be thinking is that you're a harmless goof wearing a costume

Carry a firearm on your belt in public the cops will be around Real Quick and there will be a lot of higgidly-piggidly.

This despite that a fellow who is well trained with a sword can be more lethal than a bloke with a pistol.

I understand why this is - swords belong to Ye Olde Days and are seen as toys or relics.  Firearms, the teevee reliably informs us, are infernal machines of Death and Destruction.

It's just odd that one is seen costume and the other reason to run in circles and cower in fear.
