Maybe if we had public protest and got everybody's attention (and brought up the political points and the outrage of this e.g. "Between 1992 and 2006, 13 people were killed by giant snakes. At the same time, 700 people were mauled and killed by dogs") they'd give a damn.

Hell, if we all got our lazy butts off the computers, we could still have a chance at the python ban. Just know, if protest are done, be PEACEFUL and EDUCATIONAL. You and everyone else may be surprised how many people keep reptiles in this country today. We need to SPEAK and be HEARD. Make some noise. Let's TELL THE WORLD that "Damnit! I love and keep reptiles and I will FIGHT to keep my beloved pets!"
They aren't violent monkeys or man-eating tigers (with the exception of gators and crocs) and they are safer to keep than dogs.
We need to educate people, catch the media's attention, and shed some light on our fascinating hobby. Be heard! Surprise everyone with how much people in this country keep reptiles. I know there's a lot of us out there. Let's show the world that reptiles are the safe and fascinating pets that they are and that we should be allowed to keep them!
