Dems Intro Bill Banning The Use Of Glue Traps


In a move that has animal rights activists cheering and pest control companies groaning, Democrat Representative Ted Lieu has introduced a bill that would ban the use of glue traps to catch rodents.

Claiming that glue traps are “cruel” and a “public health risk,” Lieu has garnered support from organizations such as PETA and the Humane Society in his quest to rid the country of these supposedly inhuman methods.

But is this really a necessary move? Are we really going to let a few little rodents dictate what methods we can use to get rid of them? Or are we going to let the animal rights activists push their agenda onto the rest of us?

Let’s face it, these are rats we are talking about. Rats that carry diseases and destroy property. But apparently, in the eyes of Lieu and his buddies, rats deserve better treatment than hard-working Americans trying to protect their homes and businesses.

Lieu claims that glue traps are “ruthless” and “inhumane,” but what he fails to mention is that they are also effective. Unlike other methods, such as poison or snap traps, glue traps do not pose a risk to children or pets. And let’s not forget that rats are not exactly known for being gentle creatures. They are opportunistic and will do whatever it takes to survive.

But Lieu wants to put a stop to all of that. He wants to strip away our right to choose the best method for dealing with these pests. He wants to force us to use alternatives that may not be as effective and could potentially put our families and pets in danger.

But wait, it gets even better. Lieu’s bill was inspired by the city of West Hollywood, a place known for its progressive and often absurd policies. Just when you think California couldn’t get any more out of touch with reality, they go and ban glue traps.

And let’s be real, if the CDC is so concerned about the dangers of glue traps, why are they only advising against their use instead of outright banning them? Could it be that they recognize the importance of these traps in controlling rodent populations, especially in urban areas?

But Lieu and his cronies don’t seem to care about practicality or common sense. They care about pushing their animal rights agenda, no matter the cost to hard-working Americans.

And don’t even get us started on PETA. The fact that they are endorsing this bill should be a red flag to anyone with half a brain. This is the same organization that compares eating meat to the Holocaust and advocates for “pet-free” households. Do we really want them dictating our pest control methods?
