All you folks who welcome the no-smoking law would sing a different tune if all the millions of dollars smokers pay in taxes were taken away.
It is obvious some of your readers have never owned their own business. If they did, they would have compassion for others’ loss.
As for your every right to protect your health, stay away from smoking areas, bars, lounges, etc. Limiting the no smoking to everyone takes away the rights of business owners who depend on the smokers’ business. Restricting restaurants and retail outlets I can see, but lounges and bars should not have that right taken away. Does this shoe fit?
I have a right to a peaceful dining experience, so keep your screaming kids out. Personal hygiene, if you haven’t showered stay out, on and on.
What next? Take away my First Amendment rights because you don’t like it?
Don’t like smokers? Don’t go in the door.
