'To pass rational basis scrutiny, ordinances need not be
supported by scientific studies or empirical data; nor need they be effective in practice. Rather, “it is enough that there is an evil at hand for correction, and that it might be thought that the particular legislative measure was a rational way to correct it.”'


Holy smokes; that IS incredible. So now the mere condition of owning, say, a Burmese python is considered, in the eyes of the law, evil?
