I think the argument is rights.. If I have a right to something (aka obviously 100%) rurther pushing through un-needed regulations is a diminishment of that right. Why are people paranoid against Voter ID laws? Will the state/government be providing free transfer of title?
Will gun enthusiasts object to paying sales taxes on those sales?
If >50% of people want those regulations, how would you be able to characterize such as "unneeded"? Why do the majority have to prove to you anything before exercising their rights (of passing laws)?
