    Any Odd Or Obscure Gun Laws In Your State?

    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.

    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.
    Can anyone top this?

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,

    Here's a good one from Ohio: It is unlawful to discharge a firearm upon or over a cemetery or within one hundred yards of a cemetery.
    We can't stop here...this is bat country.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Yes, but we can shoot through the door to prevent unlawful entry. NC is very weird. And STILL No Castle Doctrine and STILL Duty To Retreat. :(

    Not a gun law, but strange just the same. In Utah, I can get a permit to carry a concealed firearm, but there is no legal way to carry a concealed knife. I just don't get it.

    And Florida's notorious anti open carry prohibition does NOT apply to 'antique' firearms, as defined in the statutes.

    No concealed carry in restaurant if alcohol served for consumption on premises. However, open carry is just fine.

    In Arkansas the law says you can carry a firearm if you are on a "journey" , there has been a lot of arguments about what is a journey.

    It is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale.
    (in California)

    How big of a problem WAS this, exactly?

    Any WHY is it ok to shoot a whale from a moving vehicle? There are so many things wrong with that, I don't even know where to start!

    Wait, I just found some more:

    KANSAS - Prohibits shooting rabbits from a motorboat.
    LOUISIANA - It is illegal to rob a bank and then shoot at the bank teller with a water pistol.
    PENNSYLVANIA - A person is not eligible to become Governor if he/she has participated in a duel.
    TEXAS - It is illegal for one to shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel. (also a recently passed anticrime law requires criminals to give their victims 24 hours notice, either orally or in writing, and to explain the nature of the crime to be committed.)

    I would assume they are considering a boat when referring to a moving vehicle. Then again we are talking about California here!

    How do you consider this an odd or obscure gun law?

    Several States have this law, including Montana.

    It is illegal to discharge a gun, firearm, revolver or any kind of explosive device at a wedding.

    After shooting a stray dog you may not leave the carcass to rot on a public street.
