Why is it that two adults are not allowed to resolve an issue in the traditional fashion ? I propose dueling be legalized under the following conditions:

- Both people are legally adults
- Their immediate families consent and cannot sue anybody for anything regardless of the outcome
- The duel is performed in a controlled arena with proper safety barriers for spectators.
- The participants have sufficient insurance in case of injury(some company would right it) or post a cash bond to cover medical bills in the event of injury.

That's all I have so far, any other ideas to add on ?

That's the spirit. Keep the ideas coming guys!!!!

I think dueling should be legal, and on Pay per view!

I challenge you to a duel sir!

I don't have a problem with it. I would never participate (I prefer an unfair advantage, thanks), but I wouldn't dream of telling two consenting adults that they can't kill each other. Kill each other already! Like I give a shit.

The wording in the law is a bit odd, but I do believe Dueling is still legal in Idaho under very specific conditions. I doubt it has been used in ages though.

With a scoped single-shot TC? Nobody on arfcom, for sure. One guy would have a Glock, and the other a 1911.

Absolutely.

I dont think either of them have a TC. They look like some sort of fancy air gun??
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 9:11:07 PM EDT
Yup. As long as both agree to it (no shooting in the back and saying later that it was a duel) and I am not downrange of incoming fire, go for it.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 9:11:58 PM EDT
Muder should be legal But under very strict guidelines. If two or more people want each other dead, they would both sign an affidavit expalining why. They must agree that they are willing to risk their own lives to kill the other person. The killing must be done with no assistance from other people. There must be a time limit. The affiants would have to show proof of financial responsibilty for any dependants or debt left behind if they are killed. The affidavit would be reviewed. If it meets the guidlelines, a murder permit good for 30 days would be issued. Then they can try to kill each other in any way they can.

What are the rules for dueling? I dont know why two adults shouldt be able to try and kill each other. If they are both willing? It seems like a natural animal right.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 9:17:51 PM EDT
Make it interesting, only bladed weapons are legal for dueling.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 9:23:43 PM EDT
Our national parks are seriously underutilized. I say that dueling should take the form of a 24-hour time limit stalk.

Sure are national parks need fertilizer. How about a cordoned and contained free-fire zone in bad neighborhoods?

that worked back in the day, but nowadays you gotta worry about people coming back with guns wanting to finish the fight. Once you engage in combat consider the person an enemy for life till a truce is made.

Now walk 5,000 steps, turn around and shoot.

I was thinking it would be fun to have matched deuling paintball guns. one CO2 cartridge, one shot. This would be as close as possible to the classic deul without being deadly. Obviously not the same, but I think it would be fun for settling disputes at drunken parties. Loser leaves the party with a nice pink welt.

On of the things I think of when I'm bored.

That's an absolutely awesome idea. Now all we need is pay per view and it's a moneymaker as well! I would love to have the opportunity to slap another man in the face and challenge him to a duel.

Also, the winner takes the loser's money and gets to bang his wife.

"The only part of the conduct of any one, for which he is amenable to society, is that which concerns others. In the part which merely concerns himself, his independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign." John Stuart Mill (1806–1873). On Liberty. 1869.

Yes, anything to get more stupid people to kill themselves off is a good thing in my book.
