Wow. I don't like government-sponsored smoking bans either, but this is way over the line. A former heavyweight boxing champion was shot after asking three men to stop smoking in a wine bar.
James Oyebola, 47, was having a drink in the garden area of the venue when a dispute erupted over the new smoking ban.
One of the men pulled out a gun and fired at point-blank range into his face and leg.
Mr Oyebola, a father of two, was critically ill las night on a life support machine. His partner of 15 years and their children are keeping a vigil at his bedside. I'm sure that Michael Moore will be the first to blame this on the violent restaurant culture. After all, England is a crime-free paradise with no guns allowed, right?
