Why on earth do we have to rely on the government for a ban on bags? Let the public speak with their wallets. If you're against plastic bags, let the "offending" store(s) know that you're taking your business elsewhere. Numbers speak. If stores see that it makes good business sense to switch to paper bags, then they will. No goofy laws needed.
Personally, I don't feel strongly one way or the other about the bag that holds my Buds. I do feel that the governments time could be better spent on more important issues.
