Re: Regulations

"So you actually believe that criminals doing this are going to obey the new regulations?"

Politicians pass (often poor) regulations to soothe the masses - the enforcement is then left to other bodies who often lack the common sense necessary to implement them. If you happen to be in a minority that has legitimate requirements affected by one of these regulations, appealing/fighting it is time consuming and costly and most of the general public will just give in and accept it as the new norm.

The idealist would say that the politicians should do better and be more careful, the optimist would say all parties involved (including the public) should strive to improve while the cynic acknowledges just how far we are up the creek and that the stock of paddles is awfully low.
