This was tried with for alcohol (and other recreational drugs), gambling and abortion with terrible results. Those that would ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

    The fact that the bill never passed was ignored. Many bad ideas get proposed in bills, fortunatley most do not pass. Many in gov't now see the role of the state as to protect us from ourselves. Hopefully elections will have consequences and those that introduced or sponsored this moronic nanny statism idea will soon loose their jobs; if not, then AK deserves what its morons in their gov't attempt to do to them.
    Isnt that the same argument used for abortions?

    Pure idiocy. The government should not be the ones to determine how people want to make themselves ineligible for jobs. How are we, as employers, supposed to determine just how poor the judgment of an applicant is? It's not like we're allowed to ask them...

    It's the Arkansas Senate, not the US Senate. Good job keeping the government out of our private lives!

    1. AR is making a mistake with this legislation. Governments should not be determining what adults do with their own bodies.

    2. AR has the right to implement this legislation from a state's rights point of view. I would be totally against the federal government enacting such legislation.

    3. Trying to make this a commentary on the policies or agenda of the Republican Party is, in my mind, the height of political hackishness.

    4. Off-topic: I don't think I'll be considering beforeitsnews.com as a reliable news source any time soon since they really screwed the pooch on this story.

    Not enough information to make an informed reply. The site also indicates it was passed in the State Senate 26 -4 but then "stalled" somehow, requiring another vote. Perhaps the Arkansas State Legislature has two houses and the "lower" house is balking?

    Also, the article has no information about the actual bill. Perhaps it bans this sort of thing for juveniles under a certain age, but not for adults? I can get behind a ban on minors getting tats and piercings.

    Jumping to conlusions on so little information? Perhaps someone can locate more on the subject?
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Sorry. I was referring to some of the comments posted in response, not your original post.
