    Governor Ducey signs bill legalizing nunchucks

    https://www.abc15.com/news/state/governor-ducey-signs-bill-legalizing-nunchucks

    Arizona is lifting the legal restrictions around owning nunchucks.

    Gov. Doug Ducey on Friday signed legislation to remove nunchucks from the list of deadly weapons that are illegal to own in most circumstances.

    The weapons used in martial arts are made from two sticks or rods connected by a rope or chain.


    Arizona allows people to carry nunchucks to prepare for competition. But supporters say those who practice martial arts shouldn't have to worry they'll face charges. They say it's highly unlikely someone would use nunchucks to commit a crime.

    I think every redneck should have a set, providing I get to watch the video them hitting themselves.

    It's about time.

    I assume they became illegal in the 80s when we were worried about dangerous ninjas.

    I always wanted the belt buckle that was actually a throwing star! I was totally into the ninja craze. Those ninja shoes were lit!

    I had several sets of nunchucks in the early `70s. Knew how to make them look cool, but had no idea how to use the in combat.

    We can take away their nunchucks when we can pry them out of their cold, unconscious hands.

    I guess the law went into effect upon signature.
