    Studies indicate that there are many false assumptions regarding the effectiveness of registry laws in the US. These constitutional challenges are an important aspect of reform and might go a long way of enhancing public safety and creating a rational approach to criminal justice. NcNeil v State(NV) has shown that the over-reach of administrative bodies was checked, now this action adds to the debate over the confusing divide between perceptions, constitutional law, and public safety realities. Hopefully, reason will prevail in the conclusions reached, supported by current research in the fields of social sciences, criminal justice, and psychology.
