I'm a firm 2nd Amendment supporter and I can tell that the NRA will get none of my money. They will compromise in a heartbeat because they realize that is how business is done in the civilized world. If you want no compromise gun rights activisim, Grass Roots or Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership should be the organizations you look to.

However, when it comes to keeping large constrictors, we are not discussing a constitutional right, now are we? No, we are not. We are discussing something that can and will be taken from us if we don't play our cards right. Stomping our feet and chanting "no laws, no laws" won't do it. We have to play within the system.

And I have to repeat here, though I'm sure I'm only wasting the wear and tear on my fingertips, but the compromise legislation WILL NOT be proposed if legislation for a ban can be stopped. That is a no-compromise victory. The compromise legislation is a fall-back position that is defensible.

That is just ridiculous IMO. Writing one email and forward it to a list of people is not too time consuming. Reading thousands of emails could take a lifetime.

Come on now...

You do have a reptile vet that you are acquainted with and that sees your animals, right? You shouldn't need to "find a vet". If you have a collection, including breeders, and have no vet, you've put the cart ahead of the horse.

You still have not put forth any information regarding chips killing babies, causing cancer, etc. Not all of us can see your page....please put the information here in the thread and make it a part of the discussion.

They can. I will fight tooth and nail to protect those rights. This is venturing into "Off Topic" land, though.

i dont care how long it takes them they decide to do this and they should take the time to find out what people that they represent want. what about all those letters and phone calls they told us to make to our representatives. what if we had all our letters sent back unopened and when we called in we got a recording saying they didnt have time to hear our opinion. how would you have felt about that. and your telling me that the people that are fighting for us dont have the time to talk to us

Why are you not understanding that the alternative at the point when these recommendations might be enacted, is having NO hatchlings due to a ban?

the funny thing about this is if we would of all got and email from our state representative saying we went ahead and set up a set of guidelines for how you maybe your pets and we will go ahead and propose them if need be the whole industry would be up in arms today yet since it came from usark everyones ok with it. the only places usark should be proposing these kinda rulse is places like NY where there is a ban so people that are already keeping animals can get some kinda license instead of being considered criminals. thats the only time its ok to compromise when its for getting back you freedoms not for loosing them.
