Posted on 06/15/2011 11:31:29 AM PDT by GSWarrior
San Francisco's ever-active Animal Control and Welfare Commission has renewed its push for a pet sale ban in the city - only this time, it even covers goldfish.
The idea is to put the squeeze on puppy and kitten mills that supply pet stores, and to discourage "impulse buys" of hamsters and other small pets that often wind up being dumped at shelters.
But goldfish, guppies and tropical fish?

California is truly the land of the insane. America should just sell California to Mexico.
When goldfish are outlawed, only outlaws will have goldfish.
But they have no problem with the murder for money killing of the most innocent little babies.
It’s not a metaphor. The inmates really are running the institution.
What about gerbils? You can still by a couple of gerbils on a Saturday night in San Francisco, can’t you?
I thought thy stuffed the hamsters up their axx.

Being a Californian (for the time being), I know the insanity factor would be diminished considerably if California could get rid of San Francisco. But, that’s only a start.
I never thought I would live to see a black market for light bulbs and goldfish!
A little-known provision of this bill is that penalties will be tripled if the goldfish are found to be circumcised.
Hamsters and other pet rodents live how long? Two or three years? I find it hard to believe abandoned hamsters is a problem.
My photo would be up on a SF post office if they ever saw my 250 gal salt water reef aquarium.
Lemmiwinks is keeping close tabs on this.
to feed to
I would have to switch to the slightly less precious silverfish for pets.
San Francisco isn’t representative of the state.
If that were to occur, where would you go to blog? FR is headquartered in Fresno, CA. So by extension, I guess you think that Jim Rob and the rest of us Conservatives who happen to live in this beautiful State of California are insane. Please, if you are going to make moronic statements go over to the DU. California is a wonderful place despite our current problem with RATS, which, over time will be corrected. I notice you don’t go after NY, MA, CT,RI in your rant. Why not? They are probably more problematic than California is. Personally, I’m getting really pissed off at types like you, who probably live in a state that is at least as big a sheist hole as is California, smuggly continue to call for our “sale to Mexico.” Why don’t you try to do something positive?
What? They aren’t too busy trying to ban circumcisions?
Not for long. Under court order, they are about to release a whole lot of inmates who were supposed to serve a lot more time.
I feel sorry for the good people of CA. They suffer along with the stupid majority.
You can still by a couple of gerbils on a Saturday night in San Francisco, cant you?
No, but you could probably RENT a pair, still Knowing
SanFran they probably have some sort of communal
Gerbil district where you just pick up whatever free
gerbils are running around, as long as you bring them
They arent too busy trying to ban circumcisions?
My god, they’re circumcising gerbils now?
Is it for health reasons or just for looks?
