I like this idea, why waste valuable police time arresting the scumbags when you can just make the vendors suffer!

Sounds as if the city council has an easy decision to make; either pass the ordinance and the poor vendors suffer, or, shoot it down and let the scumbags continue to violate the privacy of the innocent residents and lose their jewelry because its sold again by the poor vendors too quickly to track! Retard!

That's government for you.... pass legislation that punishes everyone to regulate the few who cause the problem. How about the police (in their spare time) just concentrate on the ones they already know are knowingly buying stolen items.

All this ordinace will do is hurt the gold buyer. The scum who steal other people's property will wisen up and just go to fitchburg or any other surrounding town that doesn't have this type of ordinance to sell the gold. Problem solved.

If this man is running a legal and honest business he would have no problem checking ID's and keeping records. His very refusal to do that makes me suspicious indeed! If you want less robberies and break-ins then you need less places to for theives to sell stolen goods. It's that simple. How many stolen grandmothers wedding rings has this guy melted down so a thug can have money for heroin?

It's unfair to both the shop owners and the police. With the current "catch and release" program the police just are spinning there wheels. These theives get arrested and go to court where a judge lets them off on PR because they can't afford bail.
