Ban, ban, ban...coming again from the left. Because that's where it always comes from.

And look at the useful idiots in the pic, holding "fur-free L.A." placards. As if those inclined to wear fur won't purchase it somewhere else.

Plastics straws are now a crime. But knowingly giving a person an STD (like HIV) is now reduced to a misdemeanor.
