    How is ownership alone dangerous?

    And by "enact laws", you mean force their will on others.

    With ownership comes the possibility of using it.

    Well... yes.
    If we are talking possibilities, then everyone is a criminal, including you. You could easily blow up a car or oven. You could make bombs out of household products. You COULD be building a death star right now.

    I believe in innocent until proven guilty.

    I understand where your belief comes from. I feel some things have too much potential for damage or the potential for too much damage to wait for their misuse before banning them. And please dont tell anyone about my death star or I might have to use my orbital mind control lazers.

    The primary use of those things is to harm others.

    I particularly like the designs that are at some airports and cafe bars. Smokers go to a small area surrounded with glass. The amount of smoke in there should be enough for free smoking but hey, why not light up another one

    Anyway the entire area has a clear view on smokers that enter the smoking area. To me it looks like it is designed to resemble a zoo or the most wicked amongst us. It is a free show to see them and be entertained until time comes to go away. It looks like:

    >>And over here you have people who are willing to put smoke directly to the blood in their lungs even though there are alternative and less damaging ways to nicotine. See, that is called a "cigarette" and see how they light them up and inhale poison. Observe, see! Amazing creatures!<<.

    I think it should have been left entirely under the discretion of the business owners.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Inside buildings/businesses/confined spaces, I'm 100% fine with and supportive of 100% smoking bans for all people, all the time.

    Outside, in open spaces smoke whatever you want.

    This falls squarely into the "your rights stop where mine begin" camp.

    I'd also support laws where smokers could be pulled over and fined for smoking inside their own cars if there's a child or children inside the car at the same time. I hate seeing a child in a car seat while the driver is smoking. I could easily be convinced that's child abuse.
