End the Puppy Mills

I have been listening to a lot of the news lately. Wisconsin is finally on the verge of putting a stop to our puppy mills.

I hope this works. please check it out. this is something all states should have

Volume breeders aka Puppymills already have to be inspected and licensed with USDA. We can't enforce the laws we already have. Their are not enough inspectors to go around.

It's a step in the right direction. This is a lawmaking function that should be reserved to the states individually, according to the 10th Amendment anyway. Dogs are not livestock and are not going to be used for food. Therefore, USDA does not really have a stake in regulating them. USDA garners its power under the "Regulate Commerce" clause of the Constitution's Preamble, a section that was never intended to carry the weight of law. (See Federalists Paper #41.)
