Here is the NAIA letter to the CA legislature. Mancuso and ARs trying to claim they can pass a law where all animals or pets or whatever, at retail sale, be sold ONLY by rescues/shelters……in California. If you wonder why it’s ok for San Francisco or Los Angeles to do this, just realize those cities are two of the worst LIBERAL nutjobs in the state. While a city or county regulation might elect to do this, the fact is that it’s quite easy to walk over to another city or state or buy animals online. And because ‘show dogs’ will get their exemption (like they always do) that leaves normal people no choice. Next thing ya know we will have AC hunting down owners making them PROVE they got their animals from shelters/rescues? PEOPLE—- IF YOU CAN, MOVE OUT OF CALIFORNIA BECAUSE THE ARS IN THIS STATE ARE WAY, WAY, WAY OUT OF CONTROL.
This ridiculous so-called ‘law’ would violate the Commerce Clause and we assume the ARs think they can justify it by rational basis, which is the third lowest rung in deciding constitutional law cases. Even if it was a claimed “health/safety and welfare law” (which it actually is NOT)…. why not just outlaw all breeding of animals? That’s their goal anyway?
FORCING all alleged retail sales to be shelter animals/rescues is so ASININE only an idiot would not see the huge problems it creates, not to mention the illegality.
CAN WE FORCE EVERYONE TO BUY A USED CAR BECAUSE WE NEED CLEAN AIR?
CAN WE FORCE EVERYONE TO BUY HEALTH FOOD BECAUSE VEGANS ARE CLAIMING TO BE HEALTHIER?
CAN WE MAKE SALES OF MEAT OR EGGS ILLEGAL BECAUSE ARS DON’T WANT THOSE PRODUCTS SOLD???
ARE WE ALL REALLY THAT STUPID??
