What do you need a gladius for, Romania's?
ofyour house gets robbed, just call the rioter' s guild or use your scutum to fend off the attack.
No Roman citizen actually needs a gladius. If push came to shove, what, are you and your untrained barbarian slaves going to defeat 10 legions by yourselves?
What next, should you have the right to own a ballista? No Roman citizen should need anything more than a yugio to defend himself in his home. You' re just
overcompensating for your short stature and plebeian birth.

There are some references here that I don't get. But I think it's somewhat about male genitalia

You're thinking of a scrotum. A scutum is a Roman shield.

Gladius is a sword, scutum is a large shield much like the one in the picture.

Pugios are a short but broad-bladed dagger, ballista are pretty much a giant cross-bow in Roman times. They are referencing Roman weapons here as a joke to draw similarities of military weapons being compared to more civilian accessible weaponry.

Oh and Lictor's is a man-servant of the Magistrate, during early Ancient Rome were the only "police" they had access to. They were bodyguards and hand of the Magistrate. It wasn't until later, when order began to collapse in Roman civilization that what we know as Prefects began.

So during that time, Magistrates and their Lictors were the figures to discipline and punish.

Nope; gladius is a sword, pugio a small dagger.
