    It seems to me we have enough laws on the books to deal with crime. Why add a new laws about wearing a mask while committing a crime? Is this going to branch out to targer special groups? What about Halloween? There are plenty of circumstances where this law can be abused? Is too much makeup a crime? Let the courts deal with crimes, the circumstances, and the evidence.
