Actually, according to the FCC, radar detectors are both legal to own AND
use.  The basic FCC rule is that you can receive any signal but can only
transmit with a liscense unless under a certain power and within a certain
band.  This has changed somewhat recently with cell phones but still applies
to other signals.  Therefore, according to the FCC, it is actually illegal
to outlaw radar detectors.  This is ironic since radar detectors are illegal
in the land of the FCC, Washington DC and Virginia.

Canada has it's own rules on this until their currency drops low enough that
the US can buy the country.
