Addendum which applies to most laws: When it comes to RP please take the time to warn people and talk to them first in some situations as it can resolve them much more easily in most cases. (ex: When someone is trespassing in the PD give them a quick warning or two and make sure they hear you, usually they will leave and after realizing their mistake.).


Additional Note: Please keep in mind that as usual you can be sentenced with more than one crime which could lead to a very large fine, or a large amount of jail time.


Quick Reference Section for certain things in the law book:
  • REMINDER: To clarify any confusion the only weapons that can be owned legally are semi automatic handguns, and the AR-15, They are only legal when you have a valid firearms license. The AR-15 additionally must remain only on an owned property and may not be shown in public. Handguns can legally be taken in public as long as they are conceal carried or in a holster.
  • REMINDER: You must farm directly on property you own or that you have express and provable permission from the current landowner for it to be considered legal. The land must be directly a part of the property such as the backyard of a suburban house. A piece of land across from an owned property such as across a road or sidewalk does not classify as part of the property and is not legal.

Updated with new farming regulation laws.
REMINDER: You must farm directly on property you own or that you have express and provable permission from the current landowner for it to be considered legal. The land must be directly a part of the property such as the backyard of a suburban house. A piece of land across from an owned property such as across a road or sidewalk does not classify as part of the property and is not legal.

The punishment guidelines have also been increased due to an increase in farming based gang violence and homicides.

  • Change in terminology regarding narcotics and other illicit substances to match the ones regarding firearms to keep them constant, as well as allowing law enforcement more control over situations that could possibly constitute as suspicious and anti-social activity or narcotics distribution.

Update:
Small fixes to make a few laws easier to understand or more relevant to our gamemode.

Update for 10/16/2019
In order to prepare for the new prison system, ticket system, as well as the increased jailtime the max sentences of many of our laws has been increased or tweaked. The only ones that have really been touched are under the criminal law act, the rest or more or less untouched.
