A Different Smoking Ban

QT offers Chicago mayor Daley assistance with defending the city's gun ban.

Calls were placed to state and federal agencies ranging from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

A question was asked. It was a question most had not heard before.

But finally an answer is starting to take shape.

When a handgun is fired, it releases gases and other residue, including, for starters, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are carcinogenic.

Repeat. Carcinogenic.

You may see where this is heading, Mr. Mayor. You’ve just been trying to ban handguns for all the wrong reasons.

But now you know what to do.
You now have at your disposal two of the most feared words spoken these days:

Secondhand smoke.

I find the smoke from BBQ grills and fireplaces very irritating. They MUST be banned.
