Louisiana says no cash transaction for 2nd hand goods


And that is not the worst of it. Here we go, does it get much worse in taking away our liberties? I must say I am surprised at Louisiana.

 For every transaction a secondhand dealer must obtain the seller’s personal information such as their name, address, driver’s license number and the license plate number of the vehicle in which the goods were delivered. They must also make a detailed description of the item(s) purchased and submit this with the personal identification information of every transaction to the local policing authorities through electronic daily reports.

Louisiana businesses are suddenly discovering a new law that flew under the radar during the last legislative session:

Cold hard cash. It’s good everywhere you go, right? You can use it to pay for anything.

But that’s not the case here in Louisiana now. It’s a law that was passed during this year’s busy legislative session.

House bill 195 basically says those who buy and sell second hand goods cannot use cash to make those transactions, and it flew so far under the radar most businesses don’t even know about it.

As Thad Ackel, who is quoted in the linked report, notes, this law goes far beyond even the extraordinary step of banning cash transactions:.

The law goes further to require secondhand dealers to turn over a valuable business asset, namely, their business’ proprietary client information. For every transaction a secondhand dealer must obtain the seller’s personal information such as their name, address, driver’s license number and the license plate number of the vehicle in which the goods were delivered. They must also make a detailed description of the item(s) purchased and submit this with the personal identification information of every transaction to the local policing authorities through electronic daily reports. If a seller cannot or refuses to produce to the secondhand dealer any of the required forms of identification, the secondhand dealer is prohibited from completing the transaction.

This legislation amounts to a public taking of private property without compensation. Full Story at Outside the Beltway

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

    This is scary stuff. I fear that this is a test to see the public reaction, before they try it on a larger scale.

      Exactly in my mind. The TSA is now stopping cars and trucks without anyone gettting up in arms. We are indeed living near the end unless we reverse course at once.

      Yep, just like in Tennessee where the TSA will begin highway patrols this seems like a test case for the federal government moving forward.

    Control freaks … it’s a mental illness endemic to the political class. They are generally physical weaklings who have discovered they can manifest strength by controlling others bureaucratically. All in the names of ‘fairness’ and ‘security’, of course, things they never experienced as angst-filled adolescents.

    I hope this is declared illegal; because it is. We focus on tyranny at the federal level, but states and municipalities are often beating out Uncle Sam in the mad dash to take our rights away from us.

      I have to admit SF, I am running out of steam as far as commentary on what i find. It is so absurd, where does one start? Who are these people and why do they need to control everyone??

    Uh… don’t we have something called a legal tender law? How does this law affect yard sales, the Salvation Army and Goodwill? It sounds to me like some retailers didn’t want any competition from second-hand dealers.
