    Yeah, there is a great defense of the state. Tell me again why I can't tint all my windows? Oh right, the state wants to arrest me for stuff.

    Yes they are confined spaces. We really do need a law...

    Not too hard to figure out why you can't tint all your windows. Police officers need to be able to see inside your car for their safety and the safety of others. It isn't just because they don't want to, but because it is safer. Their safety and public safety in general outweighs your privacy while driving a motor vehicle on public roads.

    I agree. I can never be a traitor to the US since I was never their subject.

    Yeah, my rights are counterbalanced against safety instead of other rights. Nothing backwards about that. Really though, it's because they want to harass me about stupid **** like seat belts.

    This law doesn't change that. Parents who are going to smoke around their kids are going to smoke around their kids.

    So a woman having the right to choose what she does with her own body is no good to you.

    But tinted windows is a right because...?

    So if something is safer then the government should be allowed to force you into it? (this is a very loaded question)
