  2. But there haven’t been any more 9/11 attacks!

  4. grizzly: he’s joking.

    Steve,

    But that is part of the point: you can’t divorce the law, or the intentions of the law, from the execution of the law.

    See, e.g.: the TSA.

  5. However, you can improve the execution of the law and judging a law by it’s execution may be the wrong way to go about it.

  6. Yes, laws can be improved. But, aside from execution, how else would one propose evaluating a law?

    And this is far from the only example of resultant idiocy from the rush to make us safe from terrorists.
