Lacey-Act? How Dangerous is This New Update?

Here in the United States, we are facing a new update that could constrict on our ability to keep reptiles that could be considered “injurious”. Does anyone know the specifics? This could be really serious so I wanted to raise awareness on this community and start a conversation.
These are some of the big YT’ers raising awareness for a tiny bit of info.


I would also like to know from more knowledgeable people. I am very scared for our, and others, pets and for some their livelihood.


I believe this relates to this…


Oops, so sorry. This must’ve slipped under my notice. Thanks so much for letting me know!


No need to apologise :blush: the more attention on this the better!


Just reptiles or all animals? Like i have 8 of the deadliest scorpion species in the world as well as possible highly venomous spiders.

Honestly America has been losing its freedoms for quite some time now, i think the whole “war on terror” really picked up the pace on removing our freedoms.

I hate to go off too much on a tangent and ill finish here with this. For being the "freest"country in the world we sure do have a lot of laws telling us what we can’t do.

The Amendments proposed will probably apply to ALL animals that aren’t cats dogs, or farm livestock. All “exotics”.

Damn thats depressing. As i understand it was originally intended to protect animals being illegally taken from the wild basically be poached ( i totally could have missread and misunderstood it). Im sure lobbyists like PETA etc. Have a lot to do with this.
We are slipping into a totalitarian society with our eyes wide open.
Seriously this isn’t the America that i served and fought for.

Peoples beloved dogs kill more people than do all our exotics, heck cows kill lots of people.

I shall have to reread the original and read through the proposed amendment. I think this goes beyond a left right or center issue regardless of where we may be politically we all need to come together to defend our love of our exotics.
