Re: Have to love governments.

The legislators aren't making it illegal in order to actually stop crime, silly! They are doing it to be seen doing something by their electorate. All it is is a somewhat sad plea for re-election.

Sadly, it seems to work. And it will continue to work as long as the only prerequisite for voting is the age of the voter.
