Your question to me is illogical and basically irrelevant because of false equivalencies.

Alcohol is regulated, gun ownership is regulated, car ownership and operation is regulated, and child abuse, which is completely separable from parenting, is punishable by law.

But such comparisons also irrelevant because of the false equivalency factor: transportation, self-protection, and being a parent are pretty basic human needs. Even alcohol consumption is a fairly universal practice that has been in place for centuries...remember, drinking water used to be dangerous!

"Hobbies" such as exotic animal ownership are nonessential peripheral CHOSEN activities which, when they present a hazard to society (locally and at large), are also heavily regulated and/or banned.
