We asked if the PSL was open to compromise measures?
"Certainly, helmets are essential to surviving childhood. The protective headgear devices must be mandatory for all newborns to be released from hospital maternity wards.", the group indicated.
Regarding the addictions cited by the group, we asked them to elaborate..
"It all starts in the home. When children are exposed to twirling, they become addicted to the rush, and demand amusement park visits and even travel to Orlando, Arlington, or other mega amusement parks."
We asked if this is a new problem?
"It started with the Tilt-a-whirl. When county fairs allowed that addictive vice to remain, a whole new industry began building more and more predatory itinerant indulgences. That also coincides with increased teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases."
Then a minister in the group added; " Eventually, Rock & Roll music and extreme sports just added to the trance-like state of addiction."
We asked if amusement parks should all be banned, in Oklahoma?
"If we can't do that, we can at least file legislation to enact a county option, and state licenses for dangerous amusements need to be raised from the current $2500 to $10,000."
