I'm not surprised this comes from NJ

Lets ban even more potentially dangerous items in order to protect citizens from themselves

"The New Jersey ban came after Tina Schreffler, a South Jersey woman whose 4-year-old daughter was nearly strangled by one of the toys, lobbied legislators to pass it."

Right so one woman who obviously fails as a parent asks NJ politicians to ban something and they do it? There are a myriad of things in a house that could potentially kill or injure a 4 year old child. You can't get rid of such a risk without keeping the kid in a padded room at all times. What the hell is wrong with people?! Blaming a piece of string instead of taking responsibility as a parent. I swear the death of any semblance of personal responsibilty is sure to be the death of this nation. You can't have any freedom without accepting the attendant responsibilities of a free life.

I'm not the least bit surprised this ban has occurred in New Jersey, nor am I surprised Illinois was the 1st to enact such a ban in 2006. Such bastions of freedom New Jersey and Illinois are huh? No wonder everyone's leaving NJ in droves.
