"i have looking into the varied laws all over the USA and , just admit it, theyre lacking."

That depends on what you mean by "lacking." I don't believe we need more laws, just different ones. I believe that most laws we have now are lacking any sense. As I mentioned below, we have many laws here in the states that protect non-native wildlife. Laws aren't always the best solution, sometimes they're even part of the problem.

"my point is...take a leaf out of our book. check our statistics. we have good clear regulations that do not leave the herp keepers open to as much abundant MISinformation. as i said...we are encouraged to be informed BEFORE we buy the creature of choice. are you saying thats wrong, unrealistic, not necessary...or dont you think it would work there?"

Of course I believe in clear regulations that don't take a lawyer to understand, but that doesn't mean I think every aspect of our hobby should be regulated to death. But like I said, I don't feel like debating that point any longer cause I don't think either of us will gain anything from such a debate.
