The biggest problem with a law like this is that one state gets it, and then it becomes a "model" for other states.

Thats exactly right!Here in TN i was told by our wildlife services that other states had been in touch with them and were interested in our "model",which as most know on this forum means no hot snakes,no crocs or gators,and get ready cause if one animal escapes,they use that as an exscuse to create a harsh permit system all the way up to a total ban of the animal in question.And dare i say it,even fabricate stories to further their own agenda.Whats going to happen when(near or far future)and if the exotic ban goes federal and not just state by state?Weve got massive fight on our hands.

:The biggest problem with a law like this is that one state gets it, and then it becomes a "model" for other states. Not only that, for breeders and other people who sell herps, there will be an entire state full of people they will not be able to sell certain animals too. Vendors who do exotic animal shows won't be able to take those animals with them if they are from another state and anyone who owns those listed animals who want to move there, can't take those pets with them. Who is all of this really going to benift? It will benifit the State who will now be collecting fees for permits and issuing fines to those without permits as well as the insurance companies who get to charge a nice premium for "dangerous" pets that cause less damage and are less dangerous than dogs and cats.
