This is an NRA approach

Someone gets shot. There are two general responses

a) In the US some people say that if more people had guns and carried them around, there would be fewer shootings as there would be an 'Active response' and things woul

b) In other countries some people think that if you stop people having guns, things might be better.

In the context of malware, if you are running windows, you will have windows defender / mcaffee / abp/ noscript / ghostscript / this new tool etc keeping you safe. You are carrying more and more (metaphorical) guns to keep you safe.

That adds up to an increasing part of the CPU you bought and the electricity you paid for.

Or you try to find a way of regulating things.
