Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I've had these license plates for months! Why did the Secretary of State Police just come to my office, take my plates reading "GIV ME A" off my car and shred them?

Answer: Sometimes it takes a complaint or two from motorists for the state's license plate people to catch on and ban a particular license plate. Let me guess -- are you driving a Hummer? (Chicago Sun-Times, The off-color personalized license plates that are banned in Illinois)

2) Question: I stabbed my friend.  However, in my defense, I believe I am a vampire and he would not let me suck his blood for a second time. That's justified, right?

Answer: Unjustified! (Arizona Republic, Chandler 'vampire' gets three years probation)

3) Question: I'm working security at the county building. This guy is carrying a pitchfork as a "protest" and insists on bringing it in with him. Can I tell him he cannot come in with the pitchfork?

Answer: If you let people come in with holstered handguns, then you may be required to let this guy in with his holstered pitchfork. (Volokh Conspiracy, Pitchfork Rights Case)
