I agree it's dangerous and stupid. But I don't think that outlawing things in general solves problems.
Look, we've outlawed murder and that still happens. We've outlawed drugs, and people still take them. Kidnapping, car theft....etc etc have all been outlawed. And yet, we still have problems.
So my question is, is outlawing more things the answer? Our system of crime and punishment doesn't seem to be working all that well (sorry, the US system of crime and punishment), and in fact, a hefty number of minorities (70% of the prison population?--which seems...just a BIT unbalanced) are serving time.
I just think people should be tought to not want to beat each other bloody.
