A law that should not have gone away but as the illustrious government wanted more sales tax dollars they allowed it to be repealed.

Oh and it increased but not nearly as much as they thought!

I like having stores open on Sundays, though I do prefer to enjoy a day of rest for myself and my staff.

It has to be a personal choice, not a government action.

     In America, the Blue Laws date back to the Puritans. 

    Many States and municipalities still have Blue Laws, mainly prohibiting alcohol sales on Sunday.
