My State Laws
I figured that I'd put something in really quick about the odd state of Nevada. Not only is it shaped like they sent in measurements for a shirt but got one sleeve longer than the other, it has some funny laws. It is actually illegal to have sex without a condom or drive a camel on the highway in the state. It is legal to hang someone for shooting your dog on your property. Clark County has an ordinance that says that it is illegal to bring a concealed firearm into the county unless it is registered with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. (In order to register it, you must bring it to the police department. You also can't register the weapon on weekends but you could be prosecuted at that time.) It's also against city statutes to walk down the Las Vegas Strip with an erection. Everyone walking down the streets of Elko is required to wear a mask. Men who wear mustaches are forbidden from kissing women in Eureka. And in Nyala, a man is not allowed to buy drinks for more than 3 people other than himself at any one period during the day.
I've broken the erection statute, I believe.
