Reply To: Cato Inst. files amicus brief to Supreme Court in ex post facto case




I agree. When SCOTUS first ruled 20 years ago, the question of constitutionality of the registry did not include the mass of exclusionary zones that have been piled on since.

So, now we aren’t just required to register as part of a constitutional (supposedly) civil regulation scheme that was ruled non-punitive…today, our freedom of movement and even freedom of religion (barred from church, etc) is restricted. With the right case, I feel certain SCOTUS would overturn that aspect of the registry especially considering their decision to let Colorado’s and Pennsylvania challenges stand. And the case here in NC that NARSOL is part of looks like a great case to present. I think its just a matter of time before exclusionary zones are ruled against by SCOTUS. Just have to get a case in front of them…
