Sir, your reply post to the kind lawyer offering his advice is quite misguided. Please re-read his post. He is a criminal defense attorney. As an attorney myself in the state of WA, I can assure you that a criminal defense attorney is anything but a prosecutor. Lawyers do not attack laws we find unconstitutional without a client. So why don't you hire a constitutional attorney to represent you in getting this law overturned. It will not happen, though. Animal bans are a part of the political process and there are no federal nor state constitutional grounds in being able to keep Burmese Pythons. Whether or not you agree with the law is completely irrelevant to its force. Knowingly violating the Lacey Act is not civil disobedience; it is a felony. Please heed the advice of the attorney who originally posted this because he is trying to inform you of the consequences of the new law. I do not gather anywhere from his post that he supports the new law. If you want to see a change, then pump more money into a special interest group. That's what this will take - money.
