Sure, cats and dogs are pets, but so is literally EVERY animal to someone. This could open up the doors for banning other animals for consumption. Being a bit hyperbolic, but this could end up leading to government mandated veganism. You should not legally have the power to tell someone what they can or cannot eat.
Well, I don't have any inherent problem with telling someone what they can or can't eat. Especially when it comes to wild-caught animals, there often needs to be some kind of regulation in order to guarantee sustainability.
Having said that, there doesn't seem to be any reason to this proposed ban other than "because I like cats and dogs". And that's not a real reason. Like you say, someone could say that about basically ANY animal.
I don't know. There were some restaurants here that were stealing pets and serving them so perhaps this can safeguard someone's pet/property.
FYI, there are already laws safeguarding peoples' property from theft and unathorized destruction, and that's not what this bill is about.
I'm not asking you to repeat yourself. You seem to be very confused.
For one, dog is pretty good. Why single out these animals but still allow people to eat cows, or deer, or chicken, or pigs, or turkey, or bear, or salmon, or duck, or clams?
Secondly, I'm not sure this is something that the federal government nedds to involve itself in.
What, exaclty, do you think a "liberal arts degree" is? A degree in math, one of the liberal arts, can be quite useful.
