Like other states, Texas has old laws that once made some sense but no longer do. For some reason they were never taken off the books.
Here are a few of them:
Having a pair of pliers in his or her possession. - Goes back to the days of open range when some folks cut fences.
Hanging offense to steal cattle. - Cattle rustling was taken serious in Texas.
Shooting buffalo from the second story of a hotel. - I guess it was okay on the ground floor.
Only registered pharmacist may sell condoms. - Don't know why, but probably had something to do with quality.
There are other laws that are equally crazy still on the books in the state of Texas, but these were the ones that made me smile the most.
Happy New Year!
