The opponents of this ban will soon be screaming .... this will lead to banning our AK47s and AR15s. Confused

Just stupid!


I support a ban on all forms of smoking in any public place. It's disgusting; it evidences a fatal lack of character; and more importantly, it shows a complete lack of respect for those around you who don't smoke. Second hand smoke kills. First hand smoke kills. You want to kill yourself, go ahead; but don't kill me and my kids on the process. I walk by smoking lounges in airports and shake my head at how pitiful those people look.

Really? Lack of character? I'm not a smoker and don't like to be around people who are smoking, but that's a little harsh.

Glad I am not the only one who found......'total lack if character' and also 'pitiful looking' extreme, harsh, judgmental and actually cruel.

How about the people sitting in a bar sucking down double shots? Alcohol kills too. End results are about the same. I don't have a problem with either one of them. Martini Glass

Actually, thanks to GWB, the AKs and ARs are fine in the park. I would think the fact that there is no remnant from ecigs would be a plus but can't really see this as being an issue. Probably not necessary....but no big deal.

First, e-cigs ARE NOT SMOKING! So, the current trend to equate them with smoking is, as I said earlier, just stupid.

Full disclosure, I will continue to relax with a fine cigar whenever I so desire.

A kid with a balloon walks up to a smoker in the park and says, "Second hand smoke can kill me!". The man uses his cigarette to pop the kid's balloon, then says, "And you should never talk to strangers!"

No you won't. Confused smiley

You won't be puffing it up in places like inside the building at the Wright Brothers National Memorial where smoking is prohibited. This ban on aerosolized nicotine delivery devices applies to places like that.

He said "whenever", not "wherever". I would also venture to guess that he wouldn't have the desire to when inside places like the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

So... yes he will!

Wait - I thought it was the usual message board algebra, like:

(X + 1)squared = Xsquared + 2X + 1

I've lost enough family members due to their indiscriminate sucking of cancer sticks that I can take a second or two to express my indignation. As far as I know, cigarettes are the only legal product that if used as directed, will kill the user (or many of them), as well as those who choose not to use them.

And, whether e-cigs are dangerous to users and bystanders is an open question.

Still love the OBX and regularly visiting this message board.
