    Cottleville, Mo.

    Anyone know if there's anything preventing OC in Cottleville? I checked their website, but it says it hasn't been updated since 2007! Crazy.



    As an aside, did anyone know it's illegal to fart in a threatening manner in Cottleville? Seriously.

    In a crowded theater, it is disturbing the peace.

    Its sad... I think the law was intended for those who pisses off others like "not shooting into an outhouse". What's jacked up, you can call and report of someone wearing a shirt too short and exposing their...boobs to much. Its really weird.

    lol...

    Yes, farting in public in many cities is illegal, listed under nuisance laws.

    First i would check with the police department (most have a non-emergency number you can call) or city hall (i suggest city hall, personally) to be sure there hasn't been a law regarding OC added since 2007.

    If there isn't an ordinance against it, or they aren't aware of one (we ran into that; the mayor himself was in the office, sure there was a law on the books, but couldn't find it), then check with the county. If a city doesn't have a law against open carry, it defaults back to the county level.

    If the county doesn't have a law regarding OC, then it's legal, as per Missouri law.

    Basically, just start at the bottom with phone calls and work your way up.

    I'd go to City Hall and ask to look at an ordinance book. I wouldn't bother asking the police unless you wanted to hear threats, opinions and lectures.

    Please stop telling people to call the police department to ask about OC, all it does is cause them to rethink the law on it. Has happened in numerous municipalities. We need someone to write a thread and make it a sticky for a recommended way of approaching a muni about their laws on OC. Police officers are known to insert their fear and opinion as law and have went as far as threatening arrest if you do it, even though it is legal. (Ask me how I know)
