Perhaps we should just be glad that some people realise that laws can differ from state to state. Worse are the folks who think that because it's a law in their state it must be a law everywhere...

Maybe it would be better to encourage more active participation from the other states. ;)

I think presenting oddities in a home state is a valid criticism. It is a United States, the problem is that the country doesn't operate that way.

I understand the concept of states' rights, and I support it. My problem is that a "nanny mentality" exists for the choices I make as an adult.

I ride without a helmet in Wisconsin. Your state might require it, but why is that forced upon me?

I believe it's time for CCW licencing to mirror drivers' licensing. I can drive in Illinois with a Wisconsin license due to reciprocity. Clearly, my judgement doesn't change at the border.

Discussions on state issues underline that idea.

For example, for one year, Hawaii had a law mandating seat belts on motorcycles.

C'mon folks.

This phenomenon mostly occurs when Joe NewUser asks "Can I carry a phased array plasma rifle in the 40w range in my pickup truck to the swap meet?".

Joe NewUser usually has not used the forum setup form to put his /her location in their information, so the folks who answer "In my state-" are hoping to answer a fellow resident.

Nothing prideful about it, just trying to help with the information given.

Well . . .

Maybe double-secret-nuke.

But we won't be able to tell you, and you'll never actually see it.

Sorry Bogie, but that would violate Kirk's First Law of the Errornet:
