Interesting laws guys, although I don't think many are enforced, although interesting nonetheless, lol.

I was looking though for one's that were enforced or more common. I was reading that in California, they have agriculture check points to make sure you don't bring certain species of plants in their state.

Also in certain states, like Washington, it's okay to make a left turn on red, where in states like NC, you would get nailed for doing something like that.

Kennesaw, GA (about 30 miles north of Atlanta)....every head of household in the city must own a firearm and keep it in the home. It's not enforced and was passed in 1982 in direct opposition to the town of Morton Grove, IL which in 1981 banned all guns in their city.

Kennesaw, Georgia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
