Haven't you heard the same argument made, more or less, about the smoking ordinance?...i.e., "If people don't want to be around cigarette smoke, then don't go there."

MUCH too simplistic and obvious, my dear.

Over simplistic. People go to gambling halls to gamble and to drinking establishments to drink.


I guess the same argument could be made with the 'illegal but tolerated' poker machines in drinking establishments.

There is something strange about the human condition (especially predominate, it seems, in the US) which, when an individual either does not like or approve of a certain activity or behavior, it is not enough that he/she herself not participate in it. They feel this intense motivation to make sure that NOBODY ELSE participates in it either.
