With all the new laws that took effect in Montana on Oct. 1 that Paul has been talking about, I thought I would see if there are any really dumb laws that pertain to just the city of Billings.

Here are a couple I found.

According to Dumb Laws.com, it is unlawful for any person to sell, offer for sale, harbor, raise or give away rats as pets, toys, premiums or novelties.

Also, it is illegal in the city of Billings to be in possession of a “pea shooter.” Violators run the risk of police confiscating it.

And, here is my favorite.  Before we tell you what it is, once you read it you will say, "Duh, wouldn't that be common sense?"

Just so you know, it is illegal to bring a bomb or rocket at city council proceedings.

You've got to love some of the laws we have in our city and state.
