Of course it will, because that’s what a law IS: When you pass a law, you are effectively saying “This
thing is of such momentous import that, if you do it (or don’t do it,
whichever,) we will compel you with force, and will back that force with
the guns of the state. This is something that is so important that compliance is worth, push come to shove, shooting people.“

[Seriously I wish that NYC’s soda law was all just a dumb joke, but alas it isn’t. Some moron actually feels a 44 oz soda is worth threatening and possibly killing another human being over*. I wish more people would get this through their head. Government is force and they must use force to enforce the laws. That’s the thing with laws and government. When you say, “There ought to be a law!” You’re saying, “The state should shoot that individual when he refuses to cooperate.” Please, realize new laws for petty childish crap is NOT a solution to what you think is a problem.
Screw New York City, and state for that matter, there is no reason for me to visit either for business or pleasure. I say build a wall around the damn city and turn it into a penal colony. Then the city government might be a little less tyrannical. -B
*While they haven’t put a gun in someone’s face yet, it is only a matter of time till it happens. If you’re willing to put a gun in someone’s face, the intent is to convey their impending mortality, whether the officer really wants to shoot or not.]
