I suppose Big Brother will tell me next that I can't smoke in my own home. I already can't smoke in bars (where you probably go to get all drunk up) and restaurants. Now I will not be able to smoke in my car or truck, but wait we need more tax dollars so let's raise cigarette taxes. Makes a lot of sense to me (NOT), but you friggin liberals go ahead. This country is going to hell in a hand basket anyway.

While they're at it,since they're so concerned with responsible behavior and safety,let's ban cell phones while driving.Or is there too much money to be lost by pissing off the cell phone industry lobbyists?

Law enforcement may have to think thrice before attempting to ticket someone, who legally has a loaded weapon in reach, for smoking in their own cars.

You can still smoke in your car, just not when there's a child in there. Didn't you read the article?
The very fundamentals of law says you should not cause injury or damage to others by your actions. Since second hand smoke has been proven to cause injury, you're doing just that to another person by smoking in their presence.
Your gun under the seat doesn't hurt anyone, but a lit cigarette with a child in the car does.

The gun under my seat will kill your ass way before the second hand smoke will ever reach you. Come back when you have more facts than what the friggin libs want you to believe. I have smoked all my life and have two grown healthy children that have never been in the hospital much less seen a doctor (except my daughter when she was pregnant)for a serious illness. I and my spouse are in perfect health. So go blow your second hand smoke up somebody else's ass.

Second hand smoke (SHS) has never been proven to cause injury to anyone. It is nothing more than a annoyance to the misguided and the uneducated under normal conditions, and a minor irritant to others under the most extreme conditions.

Lone Wolf, I live in NJ, yeah I know, anyway they have outlawed cell phones in cars,$100.00 plus fine. Not cigarettes yet, probably soon. I hunt pigs with Hugh and Whup at Deerfield every now and again, I like SC cause I can have a gun like all Americans should. Don't let the liberals take that away, fight it tooth and nail. We lost most of what Americans hold dear, hunting in NJ is a nightmare and expensive as hell. This is because the animals are voting and the good guys are not. Before the next set of elections get every person you know to register. There aint nobody bussing the real America to the voter registration and then the booth but they sure are with the animals. Funny thing is, they give the animals cigarettes to vote for the libs and then ban smoking. Fight the good fight.

I see a hell of alot of Obese "Fat" Liberal NON Smokers, That will mearly DIE from being so GD Fat
We need to TAX em By the Pound.

Smoking bans and gun bans are totally unconstitutional....we have rights in the USA.

We should ban cell phones and texting
they are bad for my health when liberals use them while driving!!!!!!!
Let’s also Tax the hell out of Starbucks coffee
these liberals stand around waiting for their lottays..and are on their cell phones and they are rude as hell.
If these liberal pukes want to complain about our habits Then lets protest what they like!! also
TAX Imported vehicles whether they are assembled here or not..or tariff the hell out of them.
Man that will get em, right in the pocket book Like they do to us. I hate these pukes, always trying to take rights away from fellow American citizens; all they care about is what they want.
Well I say we take this country back.
If I choose to smoke I will...bottom line.
Leave me alone, and I will leave you alone.
If you choose not to smoke well goodie for you, but stop trying to force your liberal BS off on me. I for one am sick of all of you sissy liberal non smokers, trying to force what I do or do not do! If you don’t like smoke, then stay away from smokers who enjoy it.
There are already plenty of non smoking places.
Infringe on my rights and I will infringe on yours bottom line!!!!!!

wow you people are just behind the times.
In commieforina, its already illegal to talk on the cell phone while driving.
Its already illegal to smoke with any minor under 18 in the car.
Its illegal to have the gun and the ammo in the same compartment
(ie, gun in trunk, ammo in passenger compartment)

I think it might be illegal to NOT have an I Love Obama sticker on your bumper too...

I also think Gay marriage is Required.

These liberals that are against smoking are the same people whom commit tax fruad, DUI's , molest children, beat their wives, and other bad stuff.

BUT god forbid, They see any one smoking.

Last week I witnessed these two liberal freaks getting out of their Lexus, and The banged their car doors into someone else's car and didnt have a care in the world, and as they walked by me They gave me the evil eye because I was smoking.
But did they bother to put a note on that persons car that they had just banged into? Oh hell no.
They own the world. So I wrote down their plate # and a description of the fat libs and stuck it under the cars wiper. I hate that shit. Thinking your so much better then everyone else.
This is how you liberal fck's are.
I would adore to see you loose your rights, and have what you like taken away. Maybe and I say Maybe then you would understand. But you all have a one track mind, To Fck people over.
Thats your real and true agenda.
I dont like it so your not going to do it, This is your mentality and your agenda. You have this I will indeed drink your milkshake mentality.
I literely HATE yes Hate people like you.
Its all about you..No one else matters.
You are the same people whom elected Obama.
Why because he is a complete socialist.
And you liberals need Government to babysit you and tell you whats right and wrong, and what to do and what not to do, Just as your parents did.
So I will never show you any respect, Because you never show any to any one!!!
