Instead of passing preemption laws, states should ban the sale of commercially-bred animals statewide.

In 2018 alone, at least six state legislatures (Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New York, Oregon, and Pennsylvania) are considering such legislation.

It is almost assured more states will follow suit in the future.
