If I am reading this correctly I think it is meant that scrap or junk dealers can't pay you cash for unwanted items like scrap metal or junk cars. They have to reimburse you with a check, mo, or debit style transaction. I know in GA we have had a huge uprising or minors and adults alkie stealing scrap metal from around and off of people's homes. This law makes it easier to catch those types of sales. It says dealer, not user. If I purchase something from a garage sale I am buying it for personal use.

Sorry, state of Louisiana but you lose on this one as soon as it is taken to court.
Your law does not supersede federal law. Not that they wouldn't like it just the same as Louisiana, but it hasn't been changed.. yet.

Holy over reactions, everyone.
This law is designed for pawn shops, so it is harder to buy and sell stolen items. I live in upstate NY, and worked in a pawn shop. Every item we bought that we paid over $10, we had to fill out a slip with some form of ID and a description of the goods and furnish it to the police. Several times, stolen items were recovered and thieves were arrested due to this. Its a system that works, allthough the lack of exceptions for common sense particulars (like flea markets, craigslist and ebay) is inexcusable.
