1st of all, from what I remember, the law was passed as many were hurting themselves with the weapon. That is why NY passed the law. There is no exception for martial artists or if they are kept in your home. mere possession is against the law.

2nd, the Constitution does afford one the right to bear arms, but the High Court has upheld common sense limits, such as license requiements that many states have.

3rd, there would be noi federal case if a NY prosecutor did not file charges, unless possession is against a specific section of the US Title Code, which I do not know, but would guess it is not.

Most criminal laws in the States are set by the individual States. Federal law sonetimes overlaps, but they tend to be type specific ie, kidnapping across state lines, bank robbery, as banks are regulated/insured by the FDIC, counterfitting currency, as money is printed by the federasl government. Other federal crimes exist, as it is better handled by a national effort, ie terrorism.

You can't have nunchaku, even in your home, in New York, California and maybe a few other states in the US. It's the law! And in NY and CA you can do a year in prison for breaking that law, even if you say you were keeping the nunchaku in your home for "training purposes." The law was made by the People (a process called democracy). So no griping, OK? Law enforcement officers have a sworn duty to enforce the law, and you should be prepared to do hard time with the bad boys if you keep these dangerous weapons in your home for any reason. Don't like it? You have three options: hire a lobbyist, quit training with the 'chucks, or move!


My gripe is with freedom hating,anti constitutional communists like yourself; its people like you who need to get the hell out of MY country.My father along with the founding fathers of this country faught wars to secure the freedoms you pig scumbags take advantage of!You're a follower just like the rest of the masses or should I say cattle who bend down to kiss your masters asses.If its a police state you're looking for, you got one. So when the day martial law goes into effect which will be soon, and the men dressed in black clad outfits go from door to door and finally kicking down yours to rape and rob your family, I hope you are even happier then; providing you are against people having weapons in there home to defend themselves.You may want to take away freedoms from the mindless drones that can not think for themselves and follow like you, but you not going to TREAD ON ME!!!!NO WAY, NOT EVER!!!You liberal scumbags are not going to turn MY country into Stalinist Russia with your freedom hating rhetoric, so keep obeying your tyrannical, police state laws, mindless drone.

In my State of Western Australia you can have a nunchaku if you can prove that you have it for a lawful purpose such as martial arts training.

Importantly, self-defence is not itself a "lawful purpose". In other words if the cops come to your house and find a nunchaku and ask you why you have it and you answer "I need it for protection" you'll be charged. If you say "I go to kobudo classes - here's my gi" you'll should be okay...

While you can sell and buy nunchaku, the Feral Garment (Federal Government) has banned importation, so we have to manufacture our nunchaku locally.

If you guys think things are bad in US, in UK (at least until recently) you weren't even allowed to see Bruce Lee using his chucks at the cinema.

When Enter the Dragon celebrated its 25th anniversary the cinema near me advertised the uncut version. On the day it was due to show they aplogised and said they'd have to show the BBFC cut version (where you don't even see the chucks) as the uncut wasn't legal to show.
