The punishment for this transgression of the law is a public stoning, and the crier of “shotgun,” who was prevented from reaching the passenger seat, adjacent to the drivers seat, casts the first stone. In the case that there are no nearby stones, lynching is an appropriate substitute. If no rpoe is available, drowning is the proper way to kill the tresspasser. If there is no water, simply beat them to death. 2a. “Shotgun” may be called in advance, up to one trip (no more than 30 minutes) in advance.
