Are Blue Laws Unconstitutional?

TRANSCRIPTION OF VIDEO: Hello, Attorney Thien-Vu Hogan here. Did you know that some U.S. Counties and other countries around the world BAN the sale of alcohol and other activities on Sundays? Those laws are known as Blue Laws and the ORIGIN of Blue laws stem from religions observing SUNDAY as a day of rest and worship. If you think that Blue Laws violate the separation of church and state in the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, you are not alone as there have been many lawsuits against these laws over the years. The Supreme Court in the case of […]

And the Answer is YES, in most states you CAN be arrested if you INTENTIONALLY or RECKLESSLY spread Covid.  The “INTENTIONAL” part PROBABLY makes sense to you but what does it mean to “RECKLESSLY” spread Covid?
