    Funny TX Law

    OK, I guess people in TX don't need to worry about crime any more.

    "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 just find this funny.

    Why would you even waste the paper for that law?

    Or elect the politicians who would come up with such

    Ok, where did you get this from? Link please. Or were you trying to be funny?
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    If this is legit, I assume it is an attempt to point out the fact that laws do not stop criminals.

    Actually, folks, it is quite brilliant. If a crime is committed, and they catch the guy, they can add another charge to the long list of not having notified their victim 24 hours in advance.

    A law to reduce crime states: “It is mandatory for a motorist with criminal intentions to stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he is entering the town.

    There's one somewhere that says you cannot cross the state or city(?) line with a duck on your head.

    In Memphis, TN it is illegal to share your pie with other restaraunt patrons. And I think it's Lexington, KY where it's illegal to put an ice cream cone in your pants pocket.

    Katana,

    I believe you want to change your signature to read "April 19th, 1775 Lexington, MA to be techincally accurate, since the revolutionary war did not start in Virginia.
    "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground."

    - Thomas Jefferson
