Hmm... gun laws should be draconian IMO Aside from that, good point!
You can't legislate stupidity and malice out of people, so your better off protecting yourself from those people.
I could say laws on lasers should be more stringent because I can order a 200mW laser for 50$ and blind people like crazy (or an IR one would be even worse), but again, you can't legislate away stupidity, all you can do is remove the rights of people who have common sense to stop the .05% of people who do idiotic things.
It's like saying DUI's are a reason to ban liqueur, cancer is a reason to ban cigs. most people won't drink and drive around like an idiot (I for one have never driven within 4+ hours of drinking even a small amount, but I rarely drink anyway) and smoking is just stupid, but who am I to tell you what to do with your own body?
Training and education are far more useful then banning things. especially things that you can use to protect yourself from violence.
