IFF: Of Black Friday & Law Breaking

My teenage son really wants a Playstation 4. Nothing will make Julian happier than a next generation video game console under our Christmas tree. But I told him my willingness to buy something so pricy may depend entirely on the availability of steep discounts for consoles, games and controllers, the types of discounts that only Black Friday can offer. Black Friday has long been a staple of the Hoffman family shopping experience. Clothes, games and gadgets all have found their way into our household because of Black Friday, the day Christmas shopping season traditionally starts. And that tradition includes the sale and purchase of items sold illegally below cost. Did I just say, illegally? Yes, I did/Wayne Hoffman, Idaho Freedom Foundation. More here.

Question: Do you mind that merchants who participate in Black Friday sales may be violating Idaho law?
