. . . when they pry it from my cold, dead hands.
Interesting that this ban will prohibit everything about the lighters except the actual possession of them.
It will be illegal to purchase, sell or give novelty lighters as gifts
within the city of Pine Bluff . . .
How does the danger lie in the purchasing of the lighters, but not in the possession of them? Is a lighter purchased in Hot Springs and brought home to Pine Bluff somehow less dangerous than a lighter bought in Hot Springs? What if Pine Bluff man goes on a roadtrip with his father, also from Pine Bluff, and stops at a convenience store in Arkadelphia? Can he buy a lighter there and give it to his father there? Must the father return the gift to him before stepping back over the Hot Springs city limits line?
I hate trying to figure out the damaged minds of people who think objects are evil.
