There are a lot of these arms peddlers around -always were, probably
always will be, selling cheapo coats of arms to anybody, in shopping
malls and stations. Doesn't make them legal, Could be regarded as
harmless fun, except that informed people tend to laugh at the people
who buy, and fun could turn to misery.
