If the law says that you have to do X or be punished, those right-wing loonies can't do Y, no?
The government's job is to regulate. Regulate. Regulate. Regulate. It's nice to imagine total freedom, but that's just a fantasy. The government cannot completely not interfere in the lives of the citizens. When there is a problem, it's the government's job to step up and fix it.
