They let him KEEP THE EFFING SWORD? What kind of guards are they?
Guards who have access to guns would have little to fear from what is likely a dull archaic sword. After all, you have only to stand far enough from the bars to ensure you can't be hit. Throwing the blade would be unlikely, poorly aimed and telegraphed in ample time to duck.
Actually, if you look at the statistics, if the distance between combantants is 12 feet or less, bringing a knife to a gun fight is damned efficent due to reaction times of the gunmen.

And Moraine, much like our world's Elizabeth, proves she's politically pretty canny even while still young.
