A comedic look at what dueling would be like if it were legal in the 21st century. In this case, 2 politicians are each convinced that the other has besmirched him and so the duel is on.

A problem arises when the arbiter realizes that neither combatant knows much about using a gun, even though they claim to be knowledgeable because they watched a lot of Westerns on TV. As the arbiter points out, that would be like saying you know a lot about surfing just because you listened to a lot of Beach Boys music.
