In the US, the laws that deal with people attacking each other usually talk about use of lethal force. The lethal force could be anything that can cause permenant injury. It could be a firearm, or a stick or bare hands, or your car. The law basically describes when use of lethal force is justified.

There are some insurance products out there that cover you in case you end up using lethal force. They won't stop you from going into jail if your use of lethal force is unjustified. They will however cover cost of litigation and provide personal liability insurance

A lot of these insurance products are marketed through martial arts schools. Basically, they go "hey we are teaching you how to hurt people. In case you do hurt someone, get this insurance". Although not the same as "registering your hands as lethal weapons", it could be that the availability of these insurance products is what started this UL
