"The majority of automobile drivers are responsible drivers. Yet we still have all sorts of traffic and driving laws, drunk driving laws, etc, because of the minority that are irresponsible. That's the way laws often work -- the responsible majority have to pay for the irresponsibility of the minority."

Nope, wrong again.

Most of your driving laws target individual behaviors and the resulting enforcement/punishment is to the guilty (court date) individual. If I accept your logic then every time some one drinks and drives every driver should have to pay a fine?

With regards to reptiles we have laws in place about neglect, abuse, pet dumping etc. The current trend is not to improve or enforce these laws, it is to pass punitive legislation against reptile ownership in general. The end result will be that law abiding citizens will comply, those who refused to follow the law in first place will continue to break the law so passing additional laws will have little affect to stop the behaviors that they are designed to end. And, additional laws may actually cause more pet owners to dump their pets!
