5. Hmmm, just like the PATRIOT ACT, we all know and love so well.

I don't want law made in fear.

I suspect that laws that show up in less than 10 business days from an event are likely to:

1--not make much consideration of the conflicts they create.
2--be only slightly modified from boilerplate supplied by a special interest think tank.
3--address the risks that produce the most reactive fear in the hazard, rather than the most likely risks (admitting of course that it is possible for those things to intersect).
