You seem to have missed the point. Completely.

I prefer to give credit where credit it due: to the individuals who necessitate the regulations in the first place. You prefer to blame government: I blame the stupid jerks who ruin things for the rest of us.

And, in case you haven't noticed, alcohol consumption and sales are both heavily regulated, via age restrictions, drunk driving laws, public consumption, and so forth. Pools are likewise regulated: barriers are required, safety standards are required for public pools, and private homeowners are required to carry considerable liability insurance. Knives are also regulated: switchblades and ballistic knives at the Federal level, others at state levels.

So quit blaming government: it's the irresponsible pet owners who are doing the damage.
