    Well, a place that "protects" it citizens with gun control - I guess we shouldn't be too surprised.

    As mentioned previously, I bet caffiene is next.

    I wonder if they're considering sticking filters up everybodys nose to filter the air they breath?

    In the not-so-distant-future, NY may just ban water as well so that their citizens don't drown in the tub.

    This is just unbelievable. Saw a woman on TV trying to justify the ban. Bottom line is that since trans fats are bad for you the government should protect you from it.

    There are so many other things elected officials should be spending their time on rather than this.

    As they used to say back in NH, these guys have gotten to big for their britches.

    Can you force NYC to leave the Union?

    Sort of like the South did 145 years ago. It just wouldn't be by their choice but ours. (We could include San Banfrisco, Chicago, & maybe a few others.........

    Isn't all these trans fats the result of getting rid of those evil animal fats in fryers?

    While I fully understand your reasons, if you just dumped the California coast, especially San Francisco and L.A., inland California has some very gun friendly places!
