    Since when did every tragedy require a new law?

    I heard a limit had been put on the age requirement for this, but not according to this article. The upshot is that a tragedy occured in 2005 so in 2019 people who have been safely boating their whole life have to take and of course pay for a boating course. Add this to forcing parents and grandparents to lock their guns and making it a crime ( not a ticket but a crime) to burn your red solo cup in a camp fire.
    NYS wants to be your DADDY AND your MOMMY. apparently a child tragically died in a 2005 boating accident that almost certainly would NOT have been prevented by a boating course ( you cannot teach common sense). Undoubtedly some law maker used the situation for some photo ops.
    Enough is enough NYS. Are you really puzzeled as to why people are getting the hell out.

    Ah, the nanny state.

    Seems as if the law has no teeth. And the course can be taken online.

    Another version of this is requiring a ton of training and cert courses to cut hair or sell canned fruit from your yard.

    I would like to say it is about money or control.. I actually think it is that Government has become a hammer looking for nails.

    For another fee here int he taxation state. I've been safely operating a boat for literally 45 or more years. I don't need an course online or not. I would also imagine that most boat accidents are due to a failure in thinking not a lack on knowledge.

    The law doesn't apply to you. If the article is correct, it is only people born after 1996.

    Wasn't that the previous law? I keep hearing different things.

    I checked, the article says that the new laws removes the age exemption

    I think its because political leaders want to be precived as doing something when mostly they have no clue as what to do

    Exactly. Pandering. They even offer to name the law after the victim typically.
