    I love this bill! Saves lives! It needs more information! Also needs bipartisanship support to pass!

    The federal government should protect the public from primates crossing state lines. This bill takes the first step toward total prohibition of primates used as pets.

    Of course, primates are, as far as I know I may be wrong, one of the top animals for inhumane testing.

    The word “sale” to begin with is wrong. This is “trafficking” and nothing less. The capture, breeding, and trafficking of imprisoned nonhuman persons is slavery. Are we seriously debating whether slavery is OK? Who in 2018 thinks slavery is OK?More than that, the debate we need to be having is why nonhuman persons do not have rights, not whether or not it is OK to traffic them, even given certain “special” conditions. Brazil gave more rights to a river than non-human persons have everywhere in the world. India gave rights to cetaceans that primates do not have anywhere in the world. Why are we always so behind the curve? Look into the Nonhunan Rights Project based out of New York and the legal battles they are fighting in court for primates and other nonhumans that currently have no more rights than a shoe. THAT is what our legislators need to be working on. Slavery is slavery, species irrelevant.
