    I'm definitely for it. Hopefully it would help those not fit to own an animal shy away from getting a pet. And it might keep those who do own pets from doing anything rash in the heat of the moment. In general I think people who abuse animals need to face more consequences.

    Plus, I'd like to see that girl who threw puppies into a river a while ago actually get some punishment. Even if it was in Bosnia. Hopefully the idea spreads.

    yeah I mean TN, is really trying to turn things around. They just made community college free to everyone and now this. It's largely a red state save for a few places. But there is memphis which is pretty liberal so is nashville apparently.

    "People that abuse animals, it's a gateway crime to eventually abusing humans. So we're trying to catch this on the front end," said state Rep. Darren Jernigan, D-Old Hickory.
    That's a huge load of BS in my opinion. It's essentially the same argument as "gateway drugs" which is a load of BS for most people as well.

    I'm really hesitant of this law. I think it might cause more harm than good. The sex offender list is not perfect, and a great deal of folks on it have committed very minor acts, or the act really isn't a sex offence if you look at what occurred. There is a HUGE social stigma and nearly everyone assumes the individual committed the more severe acts that could end up on the list. Similar could happen with this.

    If they are going to do this, they need to do it right.

    But. I am also bias. I feel little empathy towards some animals, so I don't care all that much. I really don't like dogs (sue me), so I don't give a shit about them. Cats though, yep I have lots of empathy with them.

    At the end of the day, this really isn't a priority issue.

    I'm not for or against it, but it seems like a bad idea.

    It is about time they did this.

    Always said that animal abusers should have it stamped or tatooed on their forehead that they are unfit to have animals.

    Right now, it is too easy to get away with, not have to care and just get new victims as the animals literally have no voice to speak up with and they are considered property - objects to be used and discarded.

    I don't think that animal abuse is a gateway to human abuse, but those with abusive tendencies would be inclined to mistreat both animals and people. Cataloging those who have a history of exploiting or neglecting animals would likely highlight numerous individuals who wouldn't think twice about harming you or I. It's a matter of temperament. Furthermore, I really would appreciate a means to figuring out if, for instance, my next door neighbor has a poor history with animals before I ask them to take care of my pet for the weekend.

    It's a data base of "Criminals", plenty of people will end up on it under absurd reasons. Like for example the four year old boy who ended up as a sex offender. I actually remember a thread about it here on this forum too.
