      Default The American Bar Association issues opinion for federal constrictor ban

      Wasn't sure where to put this, but didn't see a better place.
      The bar association has issued an opinion that there should be federal, state, and local bans on many exotic animals, including boas and the others listed on the lacey act. This opinion goes beyond the lacey act and calls for the outright banning of breeding and keeping these animals and although it provides for a grandfather clause, any current keepers would be subject to inspections ,etc.

      See this link. The link to the actual opinion is inside the article.

      Mods, please move if you see a better place for this.

      This is some pretty draconian stuff; I wonder if there's any chance that it could go anywhere.

      USARK also released a statement about it: Animal Rights, American Bar Association DWA Resolution and Continued Vigilance
