Somewhere, a Dungeon Master weeps: The National Post reports that nine types of illegal weapons were seized and six people arrested Saturday when police raided a booth at the Canadian National Expo. Plainclothes Toronto police officers purchased several banned weapons from a vendor at the comic convention after "someone raised safety concerns about the merchandise":

''They're targeting younger people - teenager males - they're the ones that are going to buy this stuff, take it to school and get suspended. That's what we're worried about.''

The Toronto Star provides a few more details, specifying that, "police cleared 12 tables worth of swords, double-edged knives and nunchakus, and carted away two truckloads of still-packaged weapons."
