I was driving to work today and listening Beck on the radio. They were talking about how in NY they can no longer bring water out to your table unless you ask for it, and it's the law or so they say. I live in Indiana and we have some dumb laws here too but nothing that crazy. I just thought it might be interesting to see how different states have jacked up laws for guns or other items.


Indiana

No liqueur sales on Sunday. (state wide)
Gary Indiana has a city ordnance where you can not have a high capacity magazine in city limits nor can you have an assault rifle in your car. The kick to this one is if you get pulled over by a county cop and you have one of these items the county cop will call a Gary cop to come to the stop so they can write you a ticket and take the said item. Since it is only a city ordnance the county cop can not enforce it.

No auto sales on Sunday (state wide)

Don't you have statewide firearms law preemption? Just found it, you do. If what you are describing is correct, which I have my doubts, it is highly illegal

Our state has what they refer to as "individual licensure" to deal with the GFSZA. If you can possess a gun, you are considered licensed. Also, No CWP required to carry concealed outside the limits of a town or city, or logging camp, or if you are in on of those areas and engaged in an activity that people often carry guns for protection (hiking, waking the dog, ect.) Another good one is that the definition of a concealed weapon is "one one's person wholly or partially covered by wearing apparel." this means that in a purse or a bag of some type is not considerd a concealed weapon.

Pennsylvania liquor laws. They may be in the running with Utah for fucked-up-ness.

Beer stores can only sell cases or kegs. Bars can sell six-packs and twelve-packs and somehow, sandwich shops can sell singles and mixed six-packs. Wine and liquor is only sold at state stores. If you want something they don't have on the shelf, too bad. It is illegal to buy in another state and bring it back. The employees at the state store are just another civil service job. I've never met a wine enthusiast who worked at a state store. Half of them don't drink at all. After the state 8% sales tax, you pay a 20% Johnstown Flood Relief Tax, which dumps straight into the state general fund. The State of Pennsylvania is the largest single buyer of wine and spirits in the world, yet I get shitty prices and a poor selection.

The first liquor store over the border in NJ, DE and NY is always full of cars with PA plates.

Not my state, but Missouri Executive Order 44, also known as the "Mormon Extermination Order", was an executive order issued on October 27, 1838 by the governor of Missouri, Lilburn Boggs. Boggs precipitously directed that "the Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated or driven from the State if necessary for the public peace—their outrages are beyond all description".

In 1976, citing the unconstitutional nature of Boggs' directive, Missouri Governor Kit Bond formally rescinded it.
