Banning Car Sales on Sundays is not a hotly debated issue on Capitol Hill. It`s been years since someone introduced a bill to amend the bill, but Rep. Steve Drazkowski, R-Mazeppa, believes all the remaining blue laws will get into trouble once the ban on the sale of Sunday spirits is lifted. In the United States, the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly declared blue laws constitutional, citing secular foundations such as obtaining a day of rest for postmen and protecting workers and families, which contributes to social stability and guarantees the free exercise of religion.    The origin of the Blue Laws also comes in part from religion, in particular from the prohibition of the Sabbatschändung in Christian churches according to the Sabbatarian tradition of the first day. Trade unions and professional associations have supported Blue Law legislation in the past.  Most blue laws have been repealed in the United States, although many states prohibit the sale of cars and strictly restrict the sale of alcoholic beverages on Sundays. We would say that the ceilings are completely useless. But the significant increase in the cap is a good start to dismantling a system of blue laws that should never have existed. Illinois bans horse racing on Sundays and actually added a law in 1982 banning the sale of cars on Sundays.
Bergen County in New Jersey is characterized by the fact that there are some of the strictest blue laws in the country, which were kept in effect by a national referendum. The county prohibits the sale of clothing, furniture and appliances on Sundays. The city of Paramus, New Jersey, only allows the sale of food, gasoline, and other items deemed necessary on Sundays. "The issue of alcohol and morality has been resolved," Minton said. "Most states have abolished blue laws and recognized that alcohol legislation is best viewed in the name of what is best for public health. Blue laws, on the other hand, were introduced on the basis of religion, which is neither appropriate for a state nor in the best interests of consumers. In addition, maintaining the Sunday ban on alcohol is hypocritical for moral reasons, as Minnesotans may engage in other morally questionable behaviors on that day, such as buying lottery tickets. "Blue laws are laws designed to restrict certain activities on Sundays (or other specific days) for religious reasons in order to observe a day of worship or rest.
Blue laws can also prohibit purchases or prohibit the sale of certain items on Sundays. Blue laws often refer to alcohol. Once the repeal goes into effect, only 11 states will have blue laws, restrictions on when consumers can legally buy alcohol and wine. There are currently 28 states with blue laws, and laws vary from state to state, and different counties sometimes have their own blue laws. In addition to alcohol laws, which vary widely across Tennessee, bartenders are prohibited from consuming alcohol on their premises between 3 and 10 a.m. on Sundays, unless the local government has decided not to allow extended business hours for the sale of alcohol, in which case the sale before noon is prohibited.  A popular movement tried to end the last of Virginia`s blue laws. The popular movement focused on a Facebook group called "Legalizing Sunday Hunting in Virginia for All."  During the recent effort, the Sunday Hunting Act was passed by the Senate by an overwhelming majority, but was defeated by a 4-3 vote on Delegate R. Lee Ware`s Subcommittee on Natural Resources (Chairman of the Powhatan Republican Committee, Virginia).
During the February 1, 2012 debate in the opinion section of Powhatan Today, Delegated Ware expressed concern about the dangers associated with hunting activities in these quotes. "Bullets move regardless of property boundaries – just like shotgun pellets or snails or even the arrows of powerful bows. And for an unsuspecting rider, there is always the danger of meeting a hunter who misinterprets a horse - or a person - for a deer or other game. "Riders, hikers, cyclists, picnickers, ornithologists, fishermen, canoeists, kayakers: all also want to enjoy the nature of Virginia, often on Sundays – and they want to do so without the threat that inevitably comes from the presence of rifle or rifle hunters." Minnesota isn`t alone in clinging to the last remnants of Puritan blue laws. Many states still prohibit hunting in various forms on Sundays. In Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine, blue laws prohibit most retail stores and large grocery stores from opening on Thanksgiving and Christmas. In Massachusetts, retail employees who are employed on Sundays must be paid an hour and a half. Sunday sports competitions were illegal in Pennsylvania until 1931; When questioned by the Philadelphia A`s, the laws were changed so that baseball could only be played on Sundays.
In 1933, Bert Bell, who understood that the requirements for an NFL franchise granted to him were changes to the Blue Laws, played the leading role in convincing then-Governor Gifford Pinchot to submit a bill to the Pennsylvania legislature rejecting the Blue Laws.  The Legislative Assembly passed the law in April 1933, paving the way for the Philadelphia Eagles to play on Sundays. The law also required local communities to hold referendums to determine the status and scope of blue laws in their respective jurisdictions.   On November 7, 1933, the Referendum on the Blue Laws was passed in Philadelphia and became law.   With the introduction of the "Brunch Bill" in 2016, alcohol can be served at 10 a.m. on Sundays. Some boroughs in New York City have their own blue laws. The sale of motor vehicles is prohibited on Sundays. The supply of alcohol is prohibited on Sundays from 2pm to 11am. The sale of alcohol is no longer allowed from 2 a.m.
