Hey Travis,

One point I want to make is one does not need to own burmese to feel the impact.

Right now I have counted 2 states and 6 cities in a week that have moved toward reptile bans and constictor bans. We have shared that info on our site here, the social media, forums etc. The states have waited for the federal ruling. So the lawsuit starts and all the focus goes there. What about Virgina, Rhode Island and soon Pennsylvania (they passed a measure thru their house today that was exotic mammals that if it sales thru, could easily add more quickly). I am still awaiting confirmation on a city here in WI that had a dangerous animal law tied on to a pit bull ban. The pit bull portion was quickly knocked down before it was proposed because we mobilized and hit em hard. Lined up so many damned people they couldnt get them all in. But not sure if the reptile portion got dropped. If it did, I suggest the people of Fon Du Lac kiss a pit bull tomorrow because that was all that saved them.

This is starting to snowball fast. And it is now impact ALL reptile keepers. I own none of the 9 species, but I own Morelia, which def has a chance to be far more invasive and right now is on Virginia's chopping block as well as I believe Rhode Island.

This isnt all just about burmese right now.
