AR: Legislator not afraid to speak out against nonsense Halloween sex offender ban.

January 24, 2019, 6:46 pm

Sen. Trent Garner, of Arkansas, sponsored Senate Bill 10, which would make it a class D felony, punishable by up to six years in prison, for a level 3 or 4 sex offender to give candy to a minor or wear a mask or costume around a minor at any “Halloween-related” event.

More ridiculous than the bill (which ignores all studies showing there is no increase in sexual assaults during Halloween) is that it was approved Wednesday by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

But not all legislators were in favor of the bill. Sen. Stephanie Flowers, D-Pine Bluff, committee vice chairman, said “We’re going over the edge, and I’m wondering what’s next… Is there an island you want to put them on?”

Those in Arkansas should urge their senators to oppose the bill.
