    Anything that has a set location, rules, and rule enforcers is a sport, not fighting, it's more dueling.

      Any "Sport" that targets the head should be banned.

      Next thing we,ll be promoting the "right " to carry a gun as some crackpots in America do.

        Indeed? Have you bothered to read my sig line?

        James Patterson's commentaries on the Liberty of the Subject and the Laws of England Relating to the Security of the Person. (circa 1877)

        I submit that YOU are a SUBJECT of your government and not a CITIZEN?

        The RIGHT to bear arms is nothing new here but YOU obviously lost it long ago!

        Thanks for your contribution SAS trooper!

            Thank You.
            I hope I,ve contributed some sanity to the debate.
            Here in Australia we,ve sensibly banned ownership of guns although the gun nuts are trying to sneak ownership of air rifles into legislation with no chance of success.
            Carrying a gun or knife here and expect to do 2 years imprisonment (hopefully not with "brutus ")

            If your assailant is unfortunate to hit his head on the ground by the action of the defender (MA)resulting in Grevious Bodily Harm expect 7 years /Manslaughter 12 years /Murder 25 years.
            And this can be done by 1 hit.
            Yet we willy nilly go to these blood sports without any thought or care in the world and encourage others to do so,
            Is the Human race that blood thirsty.?

              In my experience, yes it can be.

                Gun Control Works...

                Gun control is an effective tool when dealing with crime. It has proven to have profound results. Why, in Australia alone gun control has had a dramatic affect on the crime rate. Don't believe it?

                Australia banned private ownership of most guns in 1996, crime has risen dramatically on that continent, prompting critics of U.S. gun control efforts to issue new warnings of what life in America could be like if Congress ever bans firearms. After Australian lawmakers passed widespread gun bans, (law-abiding) gun owners were forced to surrender about 650,000 weapons, which were later slated for destruction, according to statistics from the Australian Sporting Shooters Association.

                The bans were not limited to so-called "assault" weapons or military-type firearms, but also to .22 rifles and shotguns. The effort cost the Australian government about $500 million, said association representative Keith Tidswell. Though lawmakers responsible for passing the ban promised a safer country, the nation's crime statistics tell a different story:

                Countrywide, homicides are up 3.2 percent; Assaults are up 8.6 percent; Amazingly, armed robberies have climbed nearly 45 percent;

                In the Australian state of Victoria, gun homicides have climbed 300 percent; In the 25 years before the gun bans, crime in Australia had been dropping steadily, now there has been a reported "dramatic increase" in home burglaries and assaults on the elderly.

                At the time of the ban, which followed an April 29, 1996 shooting at a Port Arthur tourist spot by lone gunman Martin Bryant, the continent had an annual murder-by-firearm rate of about 1.8 per 100,000 persons, "a safe society by any standards," said Tidswell. But such low rates of crime and rare shootings did not deter then-Prime Minister John Howard from calling for and supporting the weapons ban.

                The statistics speak for themselves, and gun control works. The problem is "who" it works for. Everyone interested in the subject is by now familiar with John Lott's work "More Guns, Less Crime". Dr. Lott admits he had no interest in firearms until he began to research the affects of gun control on society. His conclusions led him to write a very exhaustive piece of research that proved that an armed populace is the greatest deterrent to crime.

                States which passed concealed carry laws reduced their murder rate by 8.5%, rapes by 5%, aggravated assaults by 7% and robbery by 3%; and, If those states not having concealed carry laws had adopted such laws in 1992, then approximately 1,570 murders, 4,177 rapes, 60,000 aggravated assaults and 12,000 robberies would have been avoided yearly.

                Again I will say it: gun control works (for the criminal).

                  They would have to lock up the entire states of Louisiana and Texas. But of course down here we typically eat what we shoot. A gun or knife is just a tool and not considered the instrument of the devil.

                    Take away every weapon man has and you still leave him his mind. He will find a way to kill his brother, even if it is only bare handed.

                      The official Australian statistics on gun crime show a downward trend of 18 % since the gun control laws were enacted after the Port Arthur massacre (the catalyst for gun control).
                      A very healthy sign in my opinion.
                      I reiterate that guns should only be in the hands of the Military and Law Enforcent.

                        Hitler felt the same way, as does every dictator in history. The rulers of England got a good dose of that feeling after the revolutionary war.

                        Notice a pattern?

                                I'm sorry I don't see how taking guns away from the "common folk" is going to stop criminal terrorist from taking over the3 country. I'm sure they won't use illegal weapons and means to do it.

                                No never the terrorists.
