In the American State of Oregon have suggested to allow a duel to deputies


A number of republican senators of legislative assembly of the American State of Oregon has suggested to repeal the law which forbids deputies to challenge each other to a duel. The Independent reports about it. In case the project undergoes vote in both chambers, the destiny of the ban on duels will be decided by residents of the state on the following elections. As initiators of cancellation have explained, this precept of law has become obsolete long ago and only overloads the legislation, as well as a great number of others, and it is necessary to refuse them. "Clear why he was entered. Not really decently looked when two members of legislative assembly who have disagreed began to shoot after that each other on the steps of local parliament" — senator Brian Bokvist has explained. However, as the member of the local Oregon Progressive Party Dan Mick reminds, formally the refusal of the law will mean permission of duels that involves a certain danger. He has reminded also of the sum in which the press of voting bulletins will manage. The law forbidding to deputies to challenge each other to a duel has been adopted in 1845. In 1970 the group of deputies tried to initiate cancellation of all outdated acts, including also this, but unsuccessfully.
