> You know, that makes me kinda mad. I don't own any snake heads and don't
plan to, but the fact of the matter is some types are kept as pets.

There is one quote that I read that particularly galled me. " Why do they
need them anyways". By using this typical blanket regulation, they could say
that all antabantoid fish should be banned, who needs them? For that matter,
why not cichlids, characins, cobitidids, cyprinids, centcharcids, and on and
on. All of these fish have caused problems some where.

This is not la la land goofy talk, this kind of stuff has been happening
to reptile keepers for atleast a decade. This makes quick feel good laws get
passed, they make legislators look good because they are taking action. Not
to mention more money can be drawn in. Now some of you thought Jeff's post
on government intrusion was irrelevant.
