[ RadSafe ] NYC Council bill on detectors: Simple question

Don't try to make sense of something when the concept is absurd.  I will
still have my radiation detection equipment and use it.  We have a concept
called judicial review in the USA that allows bad laws to be overturned by
the courts when application of that law abridges more fundamental freedoms.
We have "freedom of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." For a
scientist, this probably means "truth".

Until a case concerning this is actually tried in court and a decision is
passed whether the law or regulation can be applied, I personally think that
this NYC Council issue is highly questionable.

I apologize for asking something that many of you probably understand
- I hesitate to go through all the previous postings/responses to the
Can anyone summarize in 2-3 lines what the point would be to register
Geiger counters? (I don't understand it)
Wouldn't it be better if there were lots of them "out there" so that the
public learns more about natural background radiation?
