Fists as "deadly weapons"?

When I was a kid it was widely accepted that a boxer’s, and later a karate expert’s, were legally defined as “deadly weapons” and had to be “registered”.
Really? Sometimes there’s a nut of truth in myth.
Hey, that reminds me. Snopes. I’ll be baack.

Thanks, I didn’t see that. I really need to polish my “search” skills.
Please, moderators, dump this thread while I go read the other one.

Well, not so sure your search skills are faulty. It was phrased differently, and “lethal” was mispelled. I had to search a couple times to find it–which I only did because I knew it was there.

Not a problem. Closed.
