Tell me about it!
I have seen a draft copy of a proposed Control of Weapons act at state level that would have introduced broad categories that make so many things deemed to be a weapon and open to the officer's interpretation that it was positively frightening.
That one was squashed with a bit of lobbying, and it turned out that the minister responsible had not even read the bill! His advisers told him it was good so he supported it.
After he read it and was told just how bad it was he quietly dropped it, but many of its clauses have been introduced in other bills since.
They snuck a crossbow ban in onthe back of the anti-hoon laws, which allow the confiscation of cars if you are caught doing burnouts and stuff like that, and the interpretation of that act is also very loose. One of its offences is "engaging in a display of accelleration" for instance.
Not too happy....
