Seriously, why not make dueling legal? If two grown men agree to settle their differences this way, what's the problem?
Get a bunch of attorneys to draw up the paperwork correctly. Have witnesses there to verify everything is fair.
Bonus: seriously entertaining reality shows.


because with the gun technology in 1804, it was far from likely that you'd even hit your opponent, much less kill him. it was more about showing you could stand there than actually killing each other. modern firearms are just a wee bit more accurate.

Wow. Still one of the finest commercials I've ever seen.


Crap, so that's what this "getting old" business is like

The story of how he continued to serve as VP after killing Hamilton. Seriously, this guy wanted to form his own country, really a traitor.

Alexander Hamilton shot a bullet right into Alexander Hamilton... AARON BURR shot a bullet right into Alexander Hamilton.
