Monkey Laws
As the map above shows, our nation’s pattern of monkey-ownership laws is not easy to predict based on geography alone. Reliably blue states such as Washington and Illinois have no problem with personal primates, while conservative bastions such as Louisiana and Georgia have enacted blanket bans. I can only guess that legislators react to specific incidents, which open their eyes to the utter folly of adhering to strictly ideological positions.

    When monkeys are outlawed, only outlaws will have monkeys. See, for instance, this: http://www.seattlepi.com/comics-and-games/fun/Spiderman/2012-12-17/

    Fortunately, Nevada is a state that respects its citizens’ constitutional right to chimp ownership. Spiderman is likely to find himself caught in the banana-crossfire as both ape-armed security personnel and everyday citizens with concealed monkey permits collaborate to take down this intruder.
