Senate passes law banning toylike lighters in Oregon
The state Senate on Monday passed House Bill 2365, banning the manufacture, sale and distribution of toylike or “novelty” lighters in Oregon.
The Senate vote came just 19 days after the unanimous vote from the House of Representatives. Gov. Ted Kulongoski is expected to sign the bill soon.
Frankly I question whether Oregonians should be able to have lighters or even access to fire at all. Maybe a government employee could come to my house and say "stove... HOT" over and over to me.
The innovative idea that people could govern themselves through a constitutional republic has turned into the reality of our "representatives" passing an endless amount of laws that are akin to parents dressing their kids with bubble wrap.
