in the last month or so I have run, or heard of into no less than 4 registered deadly weapons.



1.)a guy I work with has a friend who is 'registered' wit the police because of his black belt and puts people on their backs with a flick of the wrist.

2.) this 17 yr old kid trying to get cozy with my niece is a 'registered' lethal weapon and can;t get into fights at school because he will go to jail.

3.) a neighbor didn't go black belt because he would have to 'register' with the police

4.) a woman I know had a ex who 'registered' by the government le agencies because of his black belt.

why do peope fall for this crap?

Im gonna photoshop registered lethal weapons certificates and hand them out to these type of guys.

One time, a guy was getting his ass handed to him by about 6 little thugs in my store. I and several other of my employees broke it up and kicked the thuglets out, locking the door behind them. The guy had done nothing but cower and cover in the fetal position. I asked him if he was OK. He says, and I quote "I could have killed all those little bastards. (he holds up his hands in fists) See these things? These are registered deadly weapons. I can kill with one punch. I would have gone to jail if I had fought back because I would have killed them all." I just looked at him like . Asked if he wanted me to call the cops. He said no, so I told him it was time to move on...

Farking idiot.

It came from Chuck Norris who is the only man in the world who is required to register his hands and feet as deadly weapons in every city he visits.

Yeah I have heard that crap before. Its almost humorous except that I have also seen one of those same people get themselves in trouble and put others in danger by trying to run from the fight they got themselves into.

I think it started with Maxwell Smart or Napoleon Solo in the 1960's. It was pretty funny back then, but now it's retarded.

My roomate holds a black belt in Shotokan Karate. Every once in awhile he'll get a tool strolling into his dojo, claiming he's a registered lethal weapon.

After my roomates sensai cleans the floor with the person's face, they claim how they had to hold themselves back or they would have killed them.


Stupid hurts.

Imagine walking in to some police office and telling them that is what you are there for.
Can I please speak to the person who registers people as being lethal weapons ? I just got in town and am required to register myself as a lethal weapon (there is a national agency that requires it ).


I am afraid I might end up in the same position. I went to the gun show last weekend with the intention of buying a half assed Chinese knockoff of something good but before I got the chance to buy anything Chinese I spent all my money on a Ninja Mind Control course on DVD.

Someone posted a story where they saw some mook with a "Tap-Out" shirt wrestle with a Marine at an air show. Tapout said "I'll try not to hurt you." The Marine said "I'd hate to get hurt by you." Then the Marine made the guy tap out 3 times in rapid order.

We had a real Ninja (cause he said so) come into our Dojo last week, he didn't want to roll because he was afraid that he would get into a tight spot use his Ninja stuff and kill one of us. You should have seen the advanced belt interest in getting on the mat with him when we heard that .

Yeah, there was a punk at my HS that said since he was a Golden Gloves boxer, his hands were registered weapons.

I saw a guy knock him out cold in a street fight. One hit. He talked more BS after that, sadly.

Debunked: Boxers are required to register their hands as "lethal weapons."

Research has failed to reveal any statutory, regulatory or other requirement that boxers -- or anyone skilled in martial arts -- "register" their hands or any other body part as "lethal weapons" in the U.S., UKoGBaNI, Canada, or any other common law nation. However, a criminal defendant's experience in boxing, karate, or other forms of hand-to-hand combat may be relevant to determining various legal issues.

First, in the United States at least, the question of whether hands (or other body parts) of a boxer, martial artist or any other person even qualifies as a "deadly" or "lethal" weapon depends largely upon how "deadly weapon," "lethal weapon," or "deadly force" is defined (usually by statute, which is then interpreted by the courts). _See,_ _e.g.,_ Vitauts M. Gulbis, "Parts of the Human Body, Other Than Feet, as Deadly or Dangerous Weapons for Purposes of Statutes Aggravating Offenses Such as Assault and Robbery," 8 A.L.R.4th 1268 (1981 and supplements); Christpher Vaeth, "Kicking as Aggravated Assault, or Assault With Dangerous or Deadly Weapon," 19 A.L.R.5th 823 (1995 and supplements). Most statutes have been interpreted to require an object external to the human body before a "deadly weapon" element can be met. For example, in _Minnesota v. Bastin_, 572 N.W.2d 281 (Minn. 1997), the Minnesota Supreme Court overruled the trial court's conclusion that the left fist of the defendant, a former licensed professional prize fighter, was a "deadly weapon."

Some courts in the United States have concluded, however, that a criminal defendant's experience in boxing or martial arts should be considered when deciding whether s/he possessed a required intent to cause harm. For instance, in _Trujillo v. State_, 750 P.2d 1334 (Wyo. 1988), the Wyoming Supreme Court found that there was sufficient evidence to support the defendant's conviction for aggravated assault after he punched someone in the head. His history as a trained boxer was one bit of evidence supporting the jury's findings on his mental state. Likewise, in _In the Matter of the Welfare of D.S.F._, 416 N.W.2d 772 (Minn. App. 1988), the Minnesota Court of Appeals held that there was sufficient evidence to conclude that the actions of the defendant, who had "substantial experience in karate," were sufficient to demonstrate his knowledge that he was hitting the victim with sufficient force to break the victim's jaw.

Similarly, a criminal defendant's boxing or martial arts experience may be relevant to determining the validity of a self-defense claim. For instance, in _Idaho v. Babbit_, 120 Idaho 337, 815 P.2d 1077 (Idaho App. 1991), the defendant shot the victim and claimed self-defense. The trial court admitted evidence regarding the defendant's past training and experience as a boxer, concluding that it was relevant to a determination of whether the defendant truly believed it was necessary to shoot the victim in order to protect himself and others. The Idaho Court of Appeals affirmed.

Documented: A criminal defendant's experience in boxing or the martial arts may be relevant to deciding whether the elements of a criminal offense have been proven.

Pretty clear the registration part is total BS. Is it true or not that a professional boxer/martial artist could be charged with "assualt with a deadly weapon" for using such knowledge without otherwise being armed?
