Read Article Explaining The Evils of Online Poker

We, the undersigned, are calling upon our city, state, and federal representatives to (1) enact legislation specifically criminalizing the unwholesome activity of playing online poker, and (2) devote necessary resources for the enforcement of such legislation.

We recommend first time offenders be prosecuted for a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $2500 or a jail sentence of up to 30 days. Repeat offenders should be prosecuted for a felony punishable by a jail sentence up to 2 years.

WHEREAS

1. Moral Costs: Online poker is a sinful activity which promotes greed, envy, pride, and sloth.
2. Effect on Children: Online poker is so easily accessible to anyone with an internet connection that there is no sure way to stop minors from participating in this addictive game.
3. Slippery Slope: Online poker is a gateway vice that will lead to other illegal activities such as illegal sports betting, illegal online casinos.
4. Social Costs: Online poker will increase the rates of divorce, child neglect, bankruptcy, and gambling addiction in our society.
5. Gambling Addiction is a Ticking Time Bomb: National Gambling Impact Commission reported that 15 million American are at risk of becoming pathological gamblers. Legalizing online poker will help trigger that addiction.

BE IT RESOLVED
We, the undersigned, call upon our elected representatives to criminalize online poker as soon as possible.
