Some may say this is state level issue. And if the states were doing what needs to be done I might have agreed. But it’s not being properly addressed at state and local levels. This could potentially be a step in the right direction in ensuring consistency across the US. Children and animals ...can’t protect themselves from the stupid. We need to do the right thing as a civilized 1st world society and step up to address unthinkable cruelties. (And to to those who go off the preverbal dead-end) No, I’m not saying children and animals are equal.
