Alli doesn't want to debate, she just wants everyone to agree with her.
A debate, little girl, is a civilized argument between two parties with differing viewpoints. You need to research and get your facts straight, in order to debate your opponent.
If all you want is to be told, "Oh yeah! Horsey slaughter is icky-poo, and the HSUS is great!", that's not a debate. That's just having everyone agree with your point of view.
Ignorance of the law is not an excuse. Ask any judge in any courtroom across the country. There is no such thing as an ignorance defense.
California has not outlawed horse slaughter, nor have they outlawed personal consumption of horses. What they have made illegal is the sale of horses to kill buyers. A law without teeth, because there's no way to enforce it. The lawmakers put it on the books to appease the rabid, anti-slaughter advocates, knowing it was unenforceable.
How old are you, anyway? If you're older than 15, shame on you for being so naive and ignorant of the laws of the land. If you're 15 or under, then you're just a child reacting emotionally, and can be excused while the adults speak.
