Gambling is now legal in all 50 states

54 posts in this topic

The US supreme court struck down the professional and amateur sports protection act of 1992, saying that the law violated the 10th amendment and was unconstitutional.  States can now allow betting and collect revenue and taxes on the process.

There are still a few obstacles to overcome, but Atlanta is ripe to be a betting hub in the South East.  This could greatly influence not only betting, but tourism linked to professional and amateur sports.

It's going to be hard to not pay college athletes now.

Thoughts???

It's about dam time. Hopefully any tax money will go to good use  

Open tr floodgates. 

What's up first?  Over/under 10 wins this season...

Good post, this could have huge implications for all sports everywhere. I like it, but there is a downside. Even Little League games will be fixed now.

It will be nice to be able to make a few bets without having to go to Vegas or using a bookie.  I can see me totally driving into Atlanta to watch a game or two and putting some money down.  I do hope they use the money for something like education.  If Atlanta plays this correctly, not only could the city see hundreds of millions in additional revenue and taxes, but also see the Falcons become one of the more popular teams in the NFL.  I have faith that Blank will see the potential.  Not so sure Atlanta or Georgia government will though.  Some back-woods red-neck hillbilly legislator will probably say that it will corrupt our souls and kill it.

Gambling is not legal in all 50 states.  It's just that the Federal Government can't make it illegal in all 50 states any longer.

Georgia would still have to repeal laws to bring it here, as I understand it.

I would think that those legislators would want to repeal the state laws because of the profits it could benefit the city and state. 

I don't see any harm at going to a bar and dropping some coin on a game or thee. If you have the expendable cash and you know te risks what's the harm?

That is what the article said, each state now has the right to choose, whereas before they had no choice but to make sports gambling illegal. Due to Federal constraint.

Not legal, just that states can now decide if they want to make it legal

Yepper, that's what I read too.

You guys are too nit picky for your own good.  There are no specific sports betting laws in GA.  There was already federal law saying you couldn’t do it.  I’m sure there will be in the near future.  You cannot make a law saying something is legal, ergo it is legal, this moment.  Hara’s stock was up this afternoon 8% after the ruling and it’s out the roof of after hours trading because Hara’s announced they were going to immediately begin online sports betting in all 50 states and expand sports betting to all casinos unless prohibited by local law.  The point I was trying to make is that I’m sure in the next day or two some GA legistlator will introduce a bill to make it illegal.  There may be some backwards counties in GA that have specific laws about gambling but as of this minute, in Atlanta, you could take bets in the open on sporting events and no one can say a thing.  If you think I’m wrong, show me the law or ordinance.  Now tomorrow might be a different story.

I appreciate being referred to as a multiple person, as I am a Gemini! lol

But calling the laws of the state nit picking is like saying, the cops were picking on you for having an ounce of Mary Jane you were smoking on your front porch on main street during a parade.

I actually stand corrected.  Georgia does have anti gambling laws which would include sports betting.

Are y'all kidding or what? 

You have a better chance of getting a handy at a nun's funeral than ever seeing legalized betting in Georgia.

I guarantee you the minute SCOTUS came out with this decision, there were dozens of calls from the Georgia Lottery Commission to every member of the Georgia Legislature they could get ahold of, and the message was:  DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. 

Trust me, two things we will not see in our lifetime in Georgia:  Legal weed smoking, and ANY gambling not sanctioned by the Lotto jerkoffs.

That's the point of the supreme court and judicial checks on legislation. Can't strike down constitutional rights provided by supreme court rulings or abortion would be illegal here.

Umm, you should know the current laws of the state you live in. Sports betting is still not allowed in MD, which is why some people driver to Dover, DE to do it.

I guess we already have gambling.  The lotto. The state has to make more on legalized gambling right?
