After my blood pressure ebbed a bit I sent the following letter to our State Representative, Ed Clere.
I know the man a little and I cannot believe he would be a party (possible pun) to such dangerous, irresponsible nonsense.
I would urge anyone who agrees to let Rep. Clere know how you feel.

Dear Rep. Clere:
Regarding S.B. 292, can this possibly be why you chose to enter politics?
I have not seen the so-called logic behind this bizarre capitulation to a lunatic fringe.
Just imagine you are at a cafe in Paris and you read this in the International Herald Tribune. Would you believe it?
Do you want innocent people conducting business in any courthouse, or the workers in those buildings, subjected to the violence which will follow from such wanton pandering.
I will personally sponsor a resolution in the New Albany (your home) Common Council in opposition to this insanity.
And, I further hope that the law, if passed, soon faces a court challenge.
