    If you can please read my entire posting, you will see that I am against the Dreadful Listing, not for it. I'm incapable of being stupid.

    Re: Animal Abuse Registry

    Using your own argument, you signed a contract when you adopted the animal.

    You may say that you are against it but your arguements are showing otherwise. Sorry but thats the way I see it.

    First, I didn't say that YOU were being stupid. I said that your arguement was. Second...NO ONE is "incapable" of being stupid.

    I've never gone to a pet adoption agency. I've never signed anything to own an animal. All the animals that I have ever owned were either given to me as a gift, followed me or someone in my family home. I did buy one at a pet store once. But even then I didn't have to sign anything as I used cash.

    Sorry, no contract signing here.

    That is not a contract with any animal, it is a contract with a human organization. People are also given pets and buy them at pet stores with no contract at all.

    You cannot parse out these words. All the elements are necessary for a crime pursuant to statute, "maliciously and intentionally kills an animal, is guilty of a crime."

    the slippery slope ...... right ...... sure ..... whatever ......

    as to cat lady hoarders - I could not give a rats behind about your story. I am halping to write this law and I can tell you with 100% certainty that we are handling such things as a disorder and NOT a criminal violation. Of course, I said that many pages ago.

    Must be nice to be able to arbitrarily make up these terms to fit your cause. I hope this bill fails, all these lists have to go. I don't know many rational people who actually endorse such practices.

    Again I will refer you to the sex offender registry in which people are being put on it that shouldn't be. You can say that "you cannot parse out these words" but a lawyers job is to parse words.

    As someone who is helping to write the law then you should be able to allay our concerns. You have yet to do so.

    What good is this law going to actually do? Is it actually going to stop a person from getting and abusing an animal? Because so far the answer to these is none and no. Which means this "law" is nothing more than further punishment to people that have already been convicted and served their time and a hazard to those people and to innocent people.

    As someone who has been convicted of a crime and knows what it is like even 19 years afterwards with a clean record since I can tell you that I am still being punished by society...and my name isn't even on a list that someone can casually look up on the net.
