I watched this bill move through the legislature with some interest, in part because the original intent was to have these businesses register with the local plan commission (which later was amended). The stated idea was to protect counties without planning and zoning from those nasty pron-0-graphy peddlers who lately have taken advantage of these upstanding rural places. I followed it in part also for its' obvious unconstitutionality. I was not surprised when it passed and signed into law.The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE) is opposing a new Indiana law requiring bookstore operators to register with the government if they sell "sexually explicit materials." The organization argues the regulation could apply to stores that sell mainstream novels and educational books. The ABFFE will ask the Media Coalition to file a legal challenge to the law. The coalition defends businesses that produce and distribute publications, recordings, movies, videos and video games that are protected by the First Amendment.
Given some of the scenes in The Good Book, would Christian Booksellers have to register, I wonder?
