Gotham: slow on the 1st Amendment, too.

New York City is apparently not just slow on the uptake regarding the "right of the people to keep and bear arms", but also about free speech.  How so? 

They've come up with a regulation saying that fines of up to $250,000 can be assessed if an employer or landlord fails to use the "correct" pronoun for those who are transgendered.  It is not entirely clear whether "I couldn't tell" would be an adequate defense, but given the size of the fines they're proposing, I'm guessing "no". 

And they're doing a great job protecting those with gender dysphoria, too; a transgender "woman" was recently sexually assaulted in the Stonewall Inn (yes, THAT Stonewall Inn). 

So in honor of how well Gotham is honoring our Constitution and protecting the rights of all of her residents, I propose each of us go out and smoke a few cigarettes and drink a Super Big Gulp.
