State of Illinois Legislature

Repeal the Act restricting drain cleaner and caustic chemical purchases

    1. Petition by

      David Greenberg

      Highland Park, IL

Because this law won't protect a single person against attack by a determined criminal. All it does is to increase the scope of State incursion into our private lives, create databases of purchases to be mined by all willing to issue a FOIA request or subpoena, and it likely won't do anything to deter a single crime. Moreover, one could simply use a different substance to commit a criminal act (e.g.: gasoline). There are already laws on the books that deal with misuse of substances for criminal activities, those should be enforced.

      Spend the time you waste making crybaby laws on FIXING the financial mess you put us in! You work for us, stop telling us to pay and obey.

      Because this law is ludicrous, and an invasion of our privacy. I refuse to give up my privacy on the premise that *some* fool criminal, somewhere will do something nefarious with a particular substance. Prosecute the criminals - leave the rest of us alone.
