Why should the government mandate, whether or not a privately owned restaraunt should allow smoking?
Why would the non-smokers not petition to the restaraunt owners to establish a few that are smoke-free? Does anyone think that if going smoke-free was really a concern of the vast majority, that restaraunt owners would have been the first to react already?........ Why do we petition the government for our every whim, and then complain that the government controls to much of our freedoms? This is not something that should be a law, but a choice of each buisness owner and let the non-smoker choose where he does buisness accordingly.
