If 'the government' decides smoking in restaurants should be banned, then the government should and does ban it.
And these smoking bans- for the most part- come from the VOTE of the people, that is how democracies work.
You might notice that drinking is legal yet in some places it is banned.
E.G.: parks.
Since now smoking and drinking is (in some places) banned in parks, I guess it would make sense to you take neither should be restricted.
Most smoking bans are not the result of a vote. Regardless of a vote what right does anyone have to tell another they’re not allowed to permit a legal act within the confines of their privately owned property?

Then you bring in parks? Wouldn’t that be public land?

You don’t get out much, do you?

So, how often do Americans use firearms for self-defense?
Criminologist Gary Kleck estimates that 2.5 million Americans use
And statisticians laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and anyone who has a drop of common sense know that Kleck is a moron and those who cannot do the math behind the numbers idiots.

HAHAHAHAAHAHAH!

Funny how close to SEVEN THOUSAND "self-defense" uses can go unreported EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE YEAR!

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Kleck's methodology includes: taking surveys PEOPLE WITH GUN MAGAZINES subscriptions and extrapolating the results as "average" HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH!


Funny how these "defenses" fail to make their way to police reports...

How unfortunate for the gun gnutters that the 32,000 dead bodies are counted and cannot be refuted.

True, I should not try to give them facts, since their minds are already made up and closed.
You mean like your 2.5 million defense uses?

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH!

How do you get around the 32,000+ dead bodies, ya DOPE?

Right... it saves ten thousand lives a year but you heard of a case ten years ago when someone drove off a bridge and couldn't get it unbuckled... gosh!
So why buckle up children?
You only consider a bridge?

Sometimes the fatal injury is caused by the restraint system itself. If a vehicle catches fire sometimes the occupant in panic can’t remove it quickly enough.

Here’s a link with a few collected links. It’s a good read.

Why buckle children? They’re not yet at an age where they can make an informed decision. I don’t wear my seatbelt in defiance of the law. If it wasn’t mandatory I probably would wear it.

We say: no smoking.

You have a feeble understanding of the freedoms that should be cherished.

Who is we?

I do NOT smoke. But, I absolutely support the rights of smokers to light up.

I doubt you travel. You huddle by the computer on Topix all day.

No need to get around them, they’re cremated or buried.

You may not have posted the word ALL, but the gist of your posts is that if only the big bad guns were all gone
Why don't you show JUST ONE of my posts where I suggested all guns should be banned?

Let me help you out:

You can't.

You are a m/f c/s liar. Grow da-fk up: put away your childish things.

Correct! Forget about individual responsibility. You are right- we need the states telling the citizens what they can/cannot do.

Prove it.

Let me say that most smoking bans are a result of DIRECT votes of the electorate, or THOSE PEOPLE THEY ELECTED TO SERVE THEM.

Now you get to tell us which smoking bans are by decree.

Here are your list of statewide bans: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin.

We need state laws when it comes smoking because smokers are universally inconsiderate filthy self-absorbed pigs.

Happy to see you show everyone some government somewhere in the world- anywhere- that does not have laws telling people what they can and cannot do.

You don't.
If you choose to go into an establishment which allows smoking then you’ve made a choice to go inside. You want to control environment belonging to others to conform to your desires.

I support the right of the people to ban smoking in public places.

It isn't the lighting up, it's the breathing out harmful gases that we find offensive.

Perhaps it is that smoking gun that people are finding soooo offensive...I say lift the ban on smokeless gunpowder...or perhaps we need the electronic bullet...
