I guess the legislatures didn't bother to consult with judges or legal scholars than before writing and passing a law?

Seems par for the course. When New York rushed through a "something must be done" prohibition on "large capacity" magazines for firearms they forgot to include an exemption for military and law enforcement.

For 24 hours every Police Officer in New York was committing a criminal offence simply by carrying their issued sidearm (with a >7round magazine) until they hastily ran back and got some grown up lawyers to fix their shonky legislation for them (like they should have done the first time around).
