Re: Registered sex offenders sue to block law requiring 'No Candy or Treats' sign on Halloween

These laws, though well intentioned, do nothing to protect children from harm. They are just a feel-good attempt to assuage the public, and do not prevent any kids from being hurt. Child molesters are step-fathers, uncles, teachers, people who know children and have access to them, and people who are trusted. Laws that prevent halloween activities only allow elected officials to claim they are doing something when they are passing laws that I contend do not accomplish their stated objective.
