Graffiti is not a victimless crime. It costs businesses and properties money to paint over and remove and is an ugly blight on our city. Vandals are never caught or punished, and once a wall is cleaned up, it becomes an immediate target for graffiti vandals.
Banning the sale of spray paint unless you possess a license would solve this problem. This petition suggests that unless you are a registered home owner or contractor, that you cannot purchase spray paint and that it should be locked behind cabinets to guard against theft.
Let’s take back our walls!!! Please sign and spread this petition. Thanks!
