I agree. People can do whatever they want on their own property and slather themselves with anything they can tolerate, but once out in public place we're obliged to show some sense of decorum. Smelling like a tear-gas factory, a rabbit cage or turd is nobody's right as long as they have the power to control themselves.
I got to thinking though-- I wonder if someone with such a heart condition or severe allergies could sue the maker of the offending product?
It’s odd that folks call them themselves Conservatives on FR, but jump on the ‘ban’ bandwagon the second a law comes up that address their pet peeve. Leave it to a peeve and get over yourselves. Decreasing freedom is not essentially Conservative.
There are enough bans that need repeal.
When NH republicans lose their majorities in the state house and senate, there will be the usual bitching by Conservatives on this board. And they will lose their majorities due to multple bills filed like this. If you suppor this, don’t whine when it loses and Republicans lose here.
Seriously, if it’s that bad, how do you go out in public? There are all kinds of smells out there, and it’s just a part of life. Like with the peanut allergies, how could such a person go to a mall since every mall I’ve ever been in has a Chinese restaurant cooking kung pao chicken?
Right. And the way I see it. If I can smell it from a foot away then that may be my problem. But if I can smell it from 10 feet away or even 100 feet away...Then that is their problem. Anyone who puts that much on has mental problems anyways. They are insecure. They are trying to attract others by means of a forced chemical reaction. It is almost like some form of witchcraft.
You notice that many here think it is just a matter of others being offended by a smell. What they don’t get is that it makes others very sick. It is kind of like spreading peanut butter around people with a peanut allergy. But they just don’t get it.

Are you willing to have government law enforcement shoot and kill anyone wearing what you would deem as to much perfurme/cologne? The only way your preference can be enforced is via government guns, so you must be willing to use those guns to ensure your preferences are met....
That is the reality for any law or regulation. We must be willing to shoot and kill anyone who does not adhere to them, otherwise the government has no ability to enforce any law or regulation.
