Re: dumb state laws
agreed ...but it is a dumb law because a white dude wrote it and they were scared of the power that was alledged to have been given them...
Also, I cannot find it because I think it was repealed some years back , but here there was alw that said it was illegal to conduct any business relations with the indians here...
In South Dakota:
You can shoot a Native American across the river from your covered wagon
In Spearfish If three or more Native Americans are walking down the street together, they can be considered a war party and fired upon.
If there are more than 5 Native Americans on your property you may shoot them.
(those have since been repealed)

Loads Of Useless Laws
Every state & federal government has tons of useless laws.
In Texas it is illegal to carry wire cutters in your pocket.
Many of these laws made some sense when they were enacted but not today. Laws are created by politicians & lawyers so we can feel safe. It's all nitpicking to the extreme.
Good laws are general guidelines, not specific & constraining. Just look at what's going on today. Laws that congress passes are very specific and fill a 400 page binder.
The Constititution was never meant to be specific but a general guidline on how to live. The Constitution guarantees us the right to bear arms but look at the limitations imposed on us today. The government is scared of its' peoples right now and very controlling. THEY know they have done wrong to us and are doing everything THEY can to keep us from righting the wrongs.
So look for many more useless laws in the future.
Here's one that actually has a good reason behind it
In Missouri it is against the law to paint a horse.
Back when, if you knew someone with a dappled horse, you could paint spots on yours get a good price at auction. The mark finds out when the horse sweats and the paint runs.
In Boone county, dogs are exempt from the boone county dog ordinance, but bunny rabbits are not. Must have 1/2 acre if in a subdivision of more than five lots for each head of livestock including bunny rabbits and chickens. Dogs are exempt.
