Well, it' not simply that I disagree with them. Here in Minnesota, Rep. Erik Simonson (CCCP-Duluth) has introduced a bill (H/T ShotInTheDark) that would ban all body armor without a permit approved by the local sheriff. The trouble is that industrial protective gear and motorcycle/snowmobile apparel like that used by loggers and snowmobilers around Simonson's district uses the same technology as a bulletproof vest. So a bill for public safety would arguably have the effect of making some of Minnesota's greatest industries and motor sports far more dangerous--and possibly cripple winter tourism in Minnesota to boot.
Also, in California, bills have been submitted to make it illegal to own any firearm with a detachable magazine. Because, of course, the Ruger 10/22 is far more lethal than a mere revolver or lever action rifle chambered in .454 Casull, and its ten rounds is far deadlier than the fifteen my Marlin has in its tube magazine.
