dueling in SC and train robbery

i'm researching sentencing guidelines and i came upon this:
ARTICLE 5. - DUELING - 16-3-410. Sending or accepting challenge to fight.

It is unlawful for a person to challenge another to fight with a sword, pistol, rapier, or any other deadly weapon or to accept a challenge.

A person who violates the provisions of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be imprisoned not more than two years. A person convicted under this section is deprived of the right of suffrage, and is disabled from holding any office of honor or trust in this State.

dueling in SC is a misdeamor offense. it's odd the things that interest me. also, harassment gets 30 days.

UPDATE: felt the need to add that train robbery gets you 2-20.
