Gaffney gets it. At least a majority of lawmakers there do.
The City Council of the small South Carolina town voted down a proposed smoking ban that would have made it illegal to light up in restaurants and at public places.
While smoking in public areas will remain legal, restaurants owners can decide if indoor smoking works for their establishments, and they reserve the right to ban smoking inside their private businesses if they see fit.
Meanwhile, supporters of the proposed ban vow to introduce new anti-smoking legislation soon.
