The truth is every law on the books could be wiped out, the only law necessary is one covering property damages, which includes violations of one's body, and a framework for restitution of said property crime. Every real crime is a crime against one's property, be it theft, murder, or something more nuanced like pollution. An optional, though not necessarily necessary law would be one covering fraud, as it could be considered a form of stealing. - Chris Wow, more of this please [St. Paul Pioneer Press]:
It's no longer a crime in Minnesota to carry fruit in an illegally sized container. The state's telegraph regulations are gone. And it's now legal to drive a car in neutral -- if you can figure out how to do it.If lawmakers in Minnesota could identify 1,175 worthless or outdated laws that could be rooted out with little real political resistance, imagine how many other worthless or outdated laws there are that are not so easy to uproot because they work to the benefit of one group or other.
