That’s not the first time they’ve done that.

Democrats, that is

 “Can you ban a style of music? California Assemblywoman Fiona Ma learned the hard way that doing so might not be so easy when she tried to ban electronic rave music. . . . Despite the inability to ban rave music outright, Ma was able to squelch aspects of rave culture like LED gloves and pacifiers by keeping the pressure on event organizers with Assembly Bill 74 (formerly the ‘Anti-Raves Act’ ), which became law on Oct. 9, 2011 when CA Governor Jerry Brown signed it.”

What’s that, you say? Democrats aren’t champions of free speech? Well, lest we forget, Tipper Gore was one of the founding members of the PMRC. Yes, Republicans were on it too; but to hear some people talk, Republicans don’t care for preserving free speech any more than the Democrats care about preserving the right to keep and bear arms.
