Reason Magazine Questions IML Decision, Other Federal Government Actions

The April 2017 issue of Reason magazine is focused upon federal government actions that result in harm to registrants and their families. The magazine is currently available by subscription only and can be obtained at a price of $15 for an annual digital subscription at

The magazine includes a discussion of our challenge to the International Megan’s Law (IML) and includes accurate statements about the lawsuit and some of its plaintiffs starting on page 34. The article also criticizes the judge’s decision and concludes with the following statement: “What’s true of the IML is true of many laws targeting sex offenders: even if they are poorly designed to achieve their ostensible goal, politicians say they will protect children, and that’s rational enough for government work.”

    I have just been advised that a single Online copy of the April addition of Reason (the one that Janice is recommending) is available at this link
    Barnes and Noble carry Reason but only had the March issue, the April issue may be available soon.

    • David Kennerly, Still Radioactive After All These Years!

      Margaret, Reason is available as a one-year digital-only subscription for just $15. That will include access to all of its print-edition articles, including the Jacob Sullum piece which is excellent, by the way.

      It is WELL worth the $15 as Reason is, far-and-away, the friendliest voice we have in journalism.

      • Lake County

        $15 for Reason Magazine or have food to eat for 3 days? Tough choice. You have to remember that most of us are poor and just surviving, so $15 for a magazine subscription is a lot of money. Margaret Moon’s suggestion to just get the single issue for $1.99 is more practical.

        • David Kennerly, Still Radioactive After All These Years!

          Except that Reason is one of the very few news media supporting our rights and should be given our support for their, very rare and exceptional, journalism. If you don’t have the money, you don’t have the money. Obviously, I’m not counseling anyone to spend money they don’t have but I am urging those who can spare $15/year to subscribe to a magazine that continuously – and not just with this one article – supports our cause. In the same issue, Elizabeth Nolan Brown has another piece that refutes entirely the whole made-up “sex trafficking” hysteria-fest.

          Such media must be encouraged and funded and I continue to urge those here who are able to do so to make that commitment. Besides, you will learn much by reading it.

          Also, Lenore Skenazy, who has spoken at RSOL and is one of our greatest public figure advocates, is a regular contributor to Reason.

        Absolutely agree with your opinion of this magazine! I’ve subscribed for years. Print copy goes to incarcerated loved one and online version to me. Maybe after reading this issue some will be convinced to subscribe. For now I think it is important that as many as possible read all the fine articles in this issue.

    FYI has one year (11 Issues / Monthly) print magazine subscription for $14.97 (it appears, it does not include digital version)

    in addition, if you purchase this subscription through cash back program (you need to sign up with first, then click through their link to get to, they offer 25% cash back for this subscription order.
    so, $14.97 – 25% = $11.22, which is a bit more than $1 per issue… but for those with tight budget, it is still a small saving.
