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.

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.
