NEW YORK CITY BANS DOGS FROM BARS. “Property rights are particularly important for protecting unpopular people and groups against persecution. In this case, however, New York City has undermined property rights in a way that harms a much wider range of people for little or no benefit. Dog ownership is extremely widespread and even many non-dog owners enjoy interacting with man’s best furry friends.”

If I owned a bar in NYC, I’d post a sign that said “No dogs or mayors allowed.”
