New poll: Majority of Missourians support Proposition B – as is
A new poll of registered and recent voters shows 59 percent do NOT want to see Proposition B overturned or weakened. Those who favor repeal came in at 41 percent.
The results also showed that by a 2-to1 margin, Missourians are hoping the governor will veto any repeal or changes to the new anti-puppy mill regulations, if such a bill reaches his desk. Hopefully, the governor sees this as a mandate to use his veto power – or more importantly, he’ll just do the right and humane thing and use the veto.
When I read comments under stories like this, often one or two individuals chime in with a claim that all breeders – in this case in Missouri – are being labeled as puppy mills. But the Prop B only imposes penalties on breeders who are not meeting the very minimum regulations in the law. So we can only assume that those who are claiming that the law goes after them as puppy millers must not be meeting the minimum standards.
This is the very purpose of the law, to weed out the substandard operations. Those opposing the law on these grounds are only proving the law will do exactly what it is designed to do. Strange that they would take this path of developing arguments that support Prop B.
