Missouri--Hollister Curfew: Freedom Prevails

Dear Missouri Friends and Members,

Last night the Hollister City Council, on a 3-2 vote, defeated the
proposed nighttime curfew. Your voice was heard! The daytime curfew
feature was deleted before it even came to a vote.

We salute the Hollister City Council for refusing to trade liberty for
safety. Benjamin Franklin said, "Those who would give up essential
liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty
nor safety."

Or put another way: do criminals obey any curfew laws? Obviously not.
So it's a good generalization to say that curfew laws always sacrifice
freedom and never produce safety.

So the citizens of Hollister--unlike those in a few unfortunate
Missouri towns--continue to enjoy the same full measure of freedom of
movement which their parents enjoyed.

Wherever you live in Missouri, please keep your eyes and ears open and
let us know immediately about any plan in your area to expand or enact
a curfew.

Sincerely Yours,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel
