Regulating businesses and
By Craig Moen
September 17, 2007
Michael Moyer made a good point which had occurred to me also
just the other day. Can and will this potential jewelry store
law be enforced? Before you put rules in place that you expect
everyone to follow, you'll need to determine what will be done
if the rule is broken. If you think about it, I'm guessing that
a clever jewelry store owner could find a loophole in such a
law if they wanted to. And they could probably fund litigation
that would keep the courts busy with frivolous suits.
Whether the initiative passes
or fails, I hope those that put the measure forward have thought
through the many details that an ordinance like this would require.
I also hope that once voters have made their choice by majority
that the topic will disappear from SitNews.
