WATCH: Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich shows off sweet nunchuck skills

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich wasted no time showing off his sweet nunchuck skills.

State lawmakers recently passed a law lifting the legal restrictions around owning nunchucks

Brnovich took to Twitter Monday, May 13 to show off “his years of martial arts training.”

It’s good to know we have an Attorney General who can take on the bad guys on the streets as well as the courtroom.

We got to say, even Napoleon Dynamite would be impressed with Brnovich’s skills.

Gov. Doug Ducey on Friday, May 10, signed the legislation to remove nunchucks from the list of deadly weapons that are illegal to own in most circumstances.

The weapons used in martial arts are made from two sticks or rods connected by a rope or chain.

Arizona allowed people to carry nunchucks to prepare for competition. But supporters said those who practice martial arts shouldn’t have to worry they’ll face charges. They said it’s highly unlikely someone would use nunchucks to commit a crime.

Critics claim nunchucks can cause serious harm and lawmakers should be focused on reducing gun violence.
