Attorney Karl Heideck recently highlighted some of the bizarre laws that are on the books in the state of Pennsylvania. There have been laws passed over the years that deal with everything from fishing to paintball fights, he says.
One of the areas that has a few strange laws is marriage.
There are laws that have been passed where they prohibit things such as firing off guns or cannons during a ceremony. There is another one, he says, that says pastors cannot marry people who are drunk. Other odd laws are involved in parenting. One of the crazy laws says that a bathroom must be situated within 200 feet of any child’s bedroom. However, Heideck says, this rule has a number of exemptions such as not applying to people who are in a travel trailer, motor home, or other forms of mobile housing.
Getting back to laws about paintball guns, you need to be aware of a couple of laws in Pennsylvania if you are using one. The big one to pay attention to is that it is illegal to shoot anyone who is not involved in the paintball fight. There is another law that describes exactly how you can transport a paintball gun in your truck or car.
