Have you ever been stopped or cited for something you did that made no sense? Have you ever said to yourself “Well, that's a dumb law!” It may surprise you how many really dumb laws we have on the books in Montana that we don't even know about. Here are just a few:

  • 6

    It is illegal to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperon.

  • 5

    It's a felony for a wife to open her husband’s mail.

    Well then, it looks like I’m headed straight to the big house!

  • 4

    It is a misdemeanor to show movies that depict acts of felonious crime.

    There goes almost every prime time TV Show, and about 98 percent of the movies.

  • 3

    In Montana, it is illegal for married women to go fishing alone on Sundays, and illegal for unmarried women to fish alone at all.

    Well, if we all only had a big strong man in our lives to fish for us, we wouldn't have to break the law now, would we?

  • 2

    It is illegal for a man and a woman to have sex in any other position other than missionary style.

    Boring! Who do you suppose has the duty of enforcing that law. “No ma’am, I'm not a Peeping Tom, I'm the Dumb Law Enforcer.”

    Prostitution is considered a “crime against the family.”

    To comment on this law can only end badly for me, so I will leave it alone for now.
