Too many laws are justified, at least in part, on the grounds of promoting the morals of us citizens. Here’s a Minnesota law you can add to that list:
471.924 COUNTY REGULATION OF SECONDHAND AND JUNK DEALERS. Subdivision 1. Authority.
For the purpose of promoting the health, safety, morals, and general welfare of its residents, any county in the state may regulate the activities of secondhand and junk dealers.
How could a secondhand store or a junk dealer or a secondhand store ever be immoral? Anyone? Here’s a link to the statute.
