Perhaps I don't understand. But, Scott, there is a distinct line between being reasonable or paranoid about government's rulings. I get the impression you are ...
a) a little stubborn and unreasonable, and
b) lean dangerously towards the paranoid state of mind.
I certainly love my freedom, but within certain social borders!
Also I never suggested people owned their children! That was a low blow on your part and you know it.
I apologize, Scott. I had no intention to hurt you, just to rattle you and others who might be reading here. Please, forgive me... I am sorry
What I said is that people that would smoke around their children won't care if there is a law or not! That is very different than condoning the action!
Here we differ! I believe parents will
care, if it's going to hurt them!!! They will also be sensitive to the neighbors seeing what goes on, and fear they could be reported.
No law at all = even less concern!
There are all kinds of ways to deal with this problem rather than implementing new unenforceable laws or taking away a minorities rights.
I suppose you think banning handguns is a good idea too?
It's not a bad idea. It seems to me that there are to many accidental shootings, and too often kids/teenagers get their hands on these weapons.
Do you really think a law is going to keep a handgun out of the hands of gang bangers?
No, I don't think so, but the opportunity is not as prevalent.
Well it wont. Just like people who smoke around children, these people don't care about laws.
I dare to disagree!
So why make a bunch of laws that will only restrict the liberties of good people?
It doesn't restrict good people at all!! You got that wrong, Scott. You care to explain?
Cui bono? (to who's advantage?) Certainly not the children of decent parents or people who follow the laws concerning handguns!
The law is for the benefit of the children from negligent parents!!
The only benefactor of these retarded laws are the government as they tighten the noose around our necks and turn us into a nation of sheep.
How old are you, Scott? With "smoking-in-the-car-with-children-law" the government is only doing its job ... protecting its youngest and most vulnerable citizens!!! You can't argue with that, if you got your facts straight and your priorities right.You, Papa Scott, take a backseat with your "I can do what I want" attitude!!!
It was a pleasure arguing with you! Anytime again, dear!
