You could make that same argument about guns - guns are safe in the hands of sensible people, the law won't stop criminals one bit etc. etc - this is basically the NRA playbook.

Except that, in the real world, guns kill a lot of people in the US where this line of reasoning is accepted, and not many in the UK where it is not and guns are essentially banned. At the very least this implies that it's not quite as simple as you make out, and - again, following the gun analogy - it there is to be a register or restrictions on sale and use, it should be done early before the horse has bolted.
