Dueling is Not Legal in Paraguay

dueling legal paraguay

Dueling is legal in Paraguay provided both parties are blood donors? That is the claim so often sprouted as fact around the world, but is it true? In short, no, no it is not. This itself may come as a bit of relief to Paraguayans who have been the butt of this ever burgeoning myth ever since it hit the world.

Begin looking on the internet for laws regarding dueling in Paraguay. There are hundreds if not thousands of pages of results. It begins to appear as though the results from the search point to the myth being true. But each and every one of the links point to a page that can not provide a link to a reliable source. This includes Wikipedia, who also have the myth listed on their article about dueling. This has left many wondering if it is in fact a real law, legal in all essence, but just outdated. But this is not the first time that we have discovered that Wikipedia has fallen foul of urban legends, as we found out with the Chinese breast touching festival. So I bet that you are now wondering what makes us think that we know that this claim that dueling is legal in Paraguay provided both parties are blood donors is a myth? Who better to provide the answer than the Paraguayan government?
