a person i know was a little insecure so he got about 20 coins and rolled them into a piece of paper. low and behold, he was stopped and searched and given a verbal warning about it. it was classified as a weapon. luckily for him it was not taken further.

of course there is no reason why you could not have them as loose change and just grab a handful before you punch a person. especially if in front of you you have nasty looking swine like xerodjehalo. Have another lot in the other pocket to and have them in both hands.

"Perhaps it's morally wrong that I carry a long stick, hmm. "

Yes you are., since you resort to means beyond your hands. Legally you definitely are in the wrong, as the possession is preparatory, the stick can be used against people, and the choice is a conscious act. The only excuse for a stick is if you have a medical need.

Societies that fear their citizens to the point that they criminalise any preparation for self defence, while not guaraneeing absolute safety, are weird. They do not trust their citizens to do more than elect their dynasts.

We come back to the original post. The net result is if you want legal protection get a professionally trained guard dog. In addition to defence its presence is a deterrent that stops unpleasantness from starting in the first place.

What a fool he must have been. :lol: In reality you may have to walk for many miles in order to find a policeman in Cyprus. :lol:
