The high status of lethal weapons?

Watch to the conclusion to see why swords are high status.
Specifically why being able to carry around a sword day to day was high status...
And for a modern version, consider how May Issue restricts carry to the wealthy & connected and their retainers.

Conversely that means Shall Issue (let alone Constitutional or permitless carry) is extremely egalitarian. And thus makes carry law a very useful litmus test for how much a person really is committed to the idea of equal rights.
