My wife and I saw the sign the other day when we drove down to the 80th District to distribute Robert Enders door hangers...
Here is a link to the relevant section of Indiana Code:
The sign is illegal based on my reading of the law. I am not sure what permit Bob Alderman is talking about... There are so many laws on the books that there is no way for a citizen to know them all. Heck, it is not possible for law enforcement officers to know them all...
This stupid law demonstrates a major difference between Reps, Dems, and Libertarians...
Reps and Dems are the ones passing stupid laws like this that restrict the rights of property owners on how they use their own property. Libertarians dislike these laws.
This is a law that should be IMMEDIATELY removed from the books. It is a stupid law and it is the kind of law that larger government types (Reps and Dems) keep passing in this country.
As far as I am concerned the law should be changed so that the person who owns the property decides what signs are on his own property...
Property rights are one of the most important rights we have in this country and they are being taken from us all the time, consider:
A proposed smoking ban that will effect my own home as it is written in Allen County
I think Bob Alderman should enforce this stupid law and do his best to get the law removed from the books as soon as possible.
I tend to think we should have far fewer laws on the books and the government should get the heck out of my life. That being said, we should enforce the laws that are on the books.
