I'm anti-spanking myself, but I just don't see how such a law can reasonably be enforced. The other problem is that this will not stop people from
spanking, it will only make them go more underground, and make them threaten their kids if they report them. Just like with abuse.
I know lots of spanked kids who became gang members, and I also know some who turned out okay. I know of very few unspanked kids who became gang
members, but I know of a lot who turned out okay.
Then again, Hitler and Fred Phelps were spanked regularly, so I guess if you're trying to raise a Nazi or extreme homophobe then you definitely want
to spank your kids...
