Legalize Nunchaku in California

One of only 3 states where the Nunchaku is illegal, California's legal stance on the most popular martial arts weapon is very out-dated. It is a misdemeanor to carry a concealed gun but a felony to possess nunchaku. Help us overcome this ridiculous unbalance.

Discussion

  • Tim Steele Martial Artists should be able to legally own them and practice with them. By all means, continue to prosecute those who use nunchaku to do harm to others, but simply owning them should not be a crime. A simple stick, bat, or practically any household tool could inflict just as much harm. Should broom handles be outlawed? How about axe handles?

  • Debbie Crawford It's time to let martial artists and their weapons have legal access for practicing their art.

  • troy ours i was arrested in cali, for practicing with my nunchucks.
