Arizona lifts nunchuck ban inspired by 1970s Bruce Lee movies

U.S. & World

It’s been a long, long road for Bruce Lee fans in Arizona. For decades the Grand Canyon state has deprived them of what many martial arts lovers consider a basic fan favorite nunchucks.

The states added them to its prohibited weapons list in response to the kung fu movie craze of the 1970s.

That list included weapons like automatic firearms, sawed-off shotguns, grenades, and i-e-ds.

But now, Governor Doug Ducey has signed a law lifting the ban on nunchucks, He signed the measure on Friday.
