    Then we agree.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    So long as the law is changed. This isn't the first time that it has happened and for some reason, it wasn't addressed. Do the people not care or the legislators not listen?

    Beats me. Every legislative session is a busy one. We should sunset laws.

    Many places do periodically review legislation, laws, bylaws etc to ensure that that they haven't become anachronistic. However, you would think that scandalous news would provoke a legislature to review something so obviously problematic - unless of course there are kickbacks to look the other way.

    I doubt there are kickbacks. It is a very old law. It may have made sense 80 years ago. Today it makes some sheriffs rich.

    Perhaps in the dirty thirties. Of course, back then, they weren't ordering premade food from factories. There was someone actually cooking the food.

    Correct this imbecilic law and then elect a new sheriff. No more problems.

    They law absolutely should be abolished
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.
