The Assembly is expected to vote Thursday.

I seriously don't see how you can communicate to a bunch of idiots that the sport of fighting won't "cause" violence in society. It's a shame that they're so closed-minded.It's these same fools that think making LAWS to take guns away will get LAW-BREAKERS to have less guns, somehow....
