"We have a "Dangerous Animal" law in my city, the reason is people bringing their iguanas and large pythons and boas to public parks and outdoor festivals. These morons forced the city to pass a dangerous animal law a few years ago."
I don't think taking your iguana into public areas "forces" your city to ban them. No more than taking your dog for a walk in a public area forces the government to ban dogs. Other herpers aren't the enemy here. There is no excuse for the creation of these retarded laws.
