    New Smoking Ban Good or Bad?

    New York City Council bans smoking in parks, beaches, Times Square

    Is the new ban in New York a good thing or is it going too far.

    It's ridiculous.

    That's stupid, if you don't like smokers, move upwind, it doesn't hurt.

    It depends. Is the ban really about the clean, fresh air or is it more about the fact that people are slobs and keep littering the place with cigarette butts?

    I'm all for keeping parks and beaches as clean as possible.

    Even if it infringes on individual freedom?

    Littering is already illegal. What are they going to ban next? Eating popsickles on public?

    Too far i say.

    I support smoking bans for public buildings, but outside, come on now...

    It's either a complete ban or putting a fines system in place that would be impossible to enforce. Public parks and beaches are not private property. Their upkeep is the responsibility of the state. I have no problem with this at all. I'm against smoking bans on private property, though, like bars, restaurants etc...

    You must always see such measures for what they truly are. They are not about public health or safety, or littering, at the very core of this and all other policing of habits, is control of the people. You are too stupid, friendo, you need Big Brother to guide your life and keep you on the wagon like a good churl.
