Useless Laws

In Tennessee, the legislature is considering a bill that would repeal the ban on having fish tanks in barbershops.

h/t Say Uncle.

And after that, maybe Congress can repeal the mohair subsidy, the national helium reserve, and the temporary tax to fund the War of 1812.

Repeal it, I say! Why should law-abiding Hoosiers have to travel to Illinois to get a blue bunny?

I've heard, and I don't know if it's true, that one state has a limitation on the number of "laws" that can be on the books. When that number is reached, one old law must be repealed before the new one is passed.

Yeah, I know, it's fantasy, but just consider for a moment. If that applied to the Feds. For a new gun control law could be enacted, NFA would have to be repealed. I'd bet the price of an real, semi/auto Auto-ordnance Thompson would drop like a rock.
