Yeah, it reminds me of when I lived in Austin about a decade or so ago and they mostly-banned smoking from nightclubs (you'd need a really expensive permit to allow it)... It was almost exclusively California transplants who wanted the bill passed, but most Austinites were against it... The bill ended up passing by just a few hundred votes -- only 4% of the population actually showed up to vote on it.

Democracy doesn't work for a lazy/apathetic population, and we're currently living in the laziest, most apathetic nation in the history of democracy (although I'm starting to wonder if that by design...)
