    They'd have to compete with the manufacturing unions set up up here that are fat off government contracts.

    Nope, most of them have the same rules in place and have had it for decades from what I have read and understand. Not the first time Tesla has hit this road block.

    Governor Chunk Chunky probably didn't get his suitcase full of money.

I actually didn't realize automobile dealerships had so much clout.
    I thought they actually would prefer to be open on Sunday? No?

    The one thing I don't understand and I'd have to look into is that they're relying on franchise laws to prevent this, which would make sense to prevent the likes of GM/Ford etc from selling direct, since those dealerships exist, but if there's no dealership at all, there's no franchisee?

    You'd think, wouldn't you? But that meant that the car salesmen didn't get a day off. The small ones were completely against closing on Sundays, but the big guys won.

    I also thought that it was crazy move, but after reflection a bit, it seems as a move to protect the consumer. Would you want a car that has no dealer network for service? Where would one take the car for service?

    I would suggest either a manufacturer owned dealership, or they'd have to have 'Tesla approved' service shops that would handle repairs/warranty claims.

    I do not believe dealer ownership was or is the issue, only the need for them.
    Tesla approved service would address the service aspect, but I do not believe that training and setting up a specialized service for such a radically different car would be financially practical. One might as well establish the dealership with the usual service facility.

    When I worked at a dealership in california we would sell around 30 cars on a Sunday.

    I don't see why a dealership would cut its own throat like that.
