The legal busybodies in NY are hell-bent on controlling everyone and everything. They want to ban smoking in private homes.
When asked if the proposed legislation is going to far, Gonzalez said, “It’s not going too far. We’re heading in that direction anyway. We can’t smoke in restaurants. We can’t smoke in buildings. We can’t smoke inside the theaters. There are parks, there are beaches that you can’t smoke in. We are headed there.”
“When I get the push-back from individuals that say, ‘No, you can’t stop me from smoking,’ I say ‘Why not?’” Gonzalez said.
In the direction of going too far … headed there. Why not? Good, pointless question today. In the New York of 200 years ago, the reason would have been the tar, feathers, and rail-running.
