I agree. The owner of West Side Coin is worse than a slum lord. He rips people off every year and they keep going back to him. Why? I wonder if he actually pays taxes that he collects from suckers. Adding a tax on a product that has already been taxed! He is a blood sucker.
A similar bill was defeated here in TN by lobbyists from the scalping industry. I wonder how many State Reps were given premium seats at Neyland!

No law will ever stop it. It will be just another of a long list of laws that can't / won't be enforced.
