Well, rant or no rant - I did enjoy it!

Knee jerk legislation of any kind, whether it be regulating dog breeds or curtailing civil liberties to fight terrorism, has been and always will be a bad idea and is almost always motivated by a political desire to win votes or curry favour.

The legislation is invariably rushed through with little consideration to its implementation, long term cost or its effects on law abiding members of society.

Sorry that was a long comment. I did criminal law at university and it's one of my pet rants. :)
