Saw this analogy somewhere and thought it was quite good.
“What if the owners of the New York Giants discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers were but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn’t be ejected. Furthermore, what if the Giants’ ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary food and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Giants had to provide free medical care and shelter?”
I suppose there are people who would say: oh these poor people just want to see a football game, what’s the harm, they’re fans, too. It’s not fair that they can’t afford to go.
Then it’s also not fair that they would get in free when others work hard to earn money in order to be able to go.
This is a country with laws and the laws should be enforced. If the laws are stupid/dumb/worthless then we need to demand our Congress people to change them.
