I am not a citizen of the state of New York but I am friends with many reptile breeders that live in that state. The state govt of New York are voting on a measure to BAN shipping of a large variety of animals in and out of the state of New York. 

If this passes, it will devastate many small businesses and will lead to the same measures in other states!

Please, if you are an animal lover of any kind, you know this will be a travesty if it passes! I urge you to sign and share this because milllions of people will eventually be touched by this egregious encroachment on freedoms!

I have only been in this community for a few years but the reptile community as a whole will be a major setback! As we all know, once a law is passed, it is even more difficult to reverse! So please, look into it and you will see what we, as an animal lover community, are facing! If we do not stand against bad policy then we can't complain when it hits home! Lets get this to enough people that we stop the horrible legislation in it's tracks!!!
