Fine For Smoking In Car With a Child

New York may soon be fining people $100 for smoking in a car with a child. They are suggesting it as way to educate people on the dangers of second-hand smoke.
Senator Toby Ann Stavisky, a Democrat from Queens, is sponsoring a bill that would make it illegal for occupants of a car to smoke if there's anyone younger than 14 in the car.

As a Californian this proposal is not super shocking to me. There are whole towns near me that don't allow smoking and yes we actually do kind of like it that way.  I know, we are strange.

How would you feel if this regulation came to a city near you?    Are smokers an oppressed minority?
