    My hands and feet aren't so dangerous, but my wife has told me on more than one occasion that my farts should be registered as lethal weapons.

    Didn't Chuck Norris use to claim that he was required to register his hands as lethal weapons?

    There was no such thing as a lethal weapon registry, until the government tried to describe Chuck Norris' fists.

    In a drunken rage, I once registered one of my size 12’s, upside a guy’s head...it occurred during a house party I threw, where many univited guests showed, when my buddy gave out my parents address. One particular individual, was causing trouble on 3 seperate occassions, upon the last incident, several fights broke out...I escorted the individual by force, from out of the basement. It came to blows outside, on the driveway. This particular incident, was one of the biggest reasons I quit drinking alcohol, almost 35 years ago

    Well I can tell you as a former cop of 26 years that it isn’t required / doesn’t happen here in Australia.....but our database allowed for “Warning’s” of a persons tendency towards violence and certainly might specify that the person is proficient or an expert martial artist, boxer or whatever the case may be.

    Anyone’s hand’s can be potentially lethal, more often so when the puncher is alcohol affected, untrained, showing off and hits or king hits (punches from behind) another inebriated person who goes down hitting their head. There are a lot of young blokes / girls in our goal’s because they hit someone once, who has then fallen over fracturing the skull causing unconsciousness, swelling / bleeding on the brain and death.

    when I was younger, there were other parts of my anatomy that SHOULD have been registered with the police. But those parts aren't really much of a danger anymore.

    Even if a martial arts expert was so dangerously bada$$ and so capable of whipping anyone in a fight that required him to register his hands,I've never seen one karate chop a bullet. As fast as Bruce Lee was,he still wasn't fast enough to do that.

    Not entirely true. If the person was to start a fight it could be a factor if it went to trial, but being a licensed professional fighter doesn’t automatically infer any additional liability or responsibility beyond that of anyone else when it comes to the law. And if said fighter is lawfully defending themselves and the other person gets hurt they do not have hold themselves to any higher legal standard of “unfairness” than any one else. This thinking is just wrong.

    A convincing argument about what to register.

    I've been doing martial arts since the early 70s. I'm a certified instructor under Hock Hochheim. I've fought in full contact matches. I know a lot of fighters, pro and amateur. I know a lot of instructors and coaches. Nobody has ever had to "register their hands". It's a ridiculous notion anyway. Assault is assault. Battery is battery. Dead is dead. Doesn't matter if the guy is trained or not. There are plenty of dudes out there that can beat me that have never stepped foot in a fighting gym.

    That said, I'm aware that if I beat somebody up I better have a darn good legal defense because a good opposition lawyer will do their best to play up my fighting experience.

    True, but an attacker can stop you from accessing your weapon if it is holstered and the attacker is within around 21 feet from you. Check the Tueller Drill. Guns are a fantastic tool. But like any tool, they have limitations and sometimes are not appropriate to the task.

    Also, if you live in a heavily gun controlled area like I do, you are unlikely to be carrying a gun in public. I've never seen a bullet stop a "karate chop" when the victim didn't have a gun accessible.

    OK, then. The thread is now adrift, so...

    What happens when Bruce Lee meets Clint Eastwood?

    Seems like Clint would be kinda bored. Bruce Lee has been dead for over 40 years. I don't think Bruce is very sociable these days. He for sure doesn't move as fast as he used to move.;)

    But neither one of them ever had to "register their hands" as "deadly weapons".

    And this thread started going adrift on the first page.:D

    What hands? All of my hands fell to the bottom of a lake during a boating accident. I can't register what I don't have!
