    Laws Designed to Prevent Crime

    Laws designed to prevent crime don't stop criminals from committing crime; they just make life more difficult for those of us who have no intention commit crimes anyway.

    The latest example? Ohio is attempting to pass a law making Internet cafes illegal because some of them are used for Internet gambling. The net result will be continued Internet gambling and less access to the Internet for folks who relied on Internet cafes for access.

    Laws should not be designed to prevent crime. They should simply be used to define crimes and to set their punishments.

    Guns are as well regulated as drugs or driving, or any mala prohibita. Gun control is just control that stinks as sweetly.

    Lets see how far that law actually gets... Has it actually passed a committee yet?

    IIRC, it was in the news because one of the houses was set to vote on it.
