While leafing through my new copy of the 2009 revised edition of Gun Laws of Montana, I ran across a reference to an obscure Montana gun law that has to do with dueling, which was omitted from the first edition of the book. This law was passed in 1895, amended in 1979, and is still on the books.
Can anyone top this?27-1-223. Damages for injuries or death inflicted in a duel. If any person slays or permanently disables another person in a duel in this state, he must provide for the maintenance of the spouse and minor children of the person slain or permanently disabled in such manner and at such cost, either by aggregate compensation in damages to each or by a monthly, quarterly, or annual allowance, as is determined by the court and he is liable for and must pay all debts of the person slain or permanently disabled.
