That's absolutely ludicrous. We don't make rules extra nonsensical simply because we are mad at one person, or one type of person. We are not talking about extra tuff rules here. We are talking about nonsensical rules. Banning "any type of constricting snake" is not an extra tuff rule. It's a nonsensical rule because it seeks to ban something that poses no danger. We don't ban nondangerous animals to show how tuff we are on dangerous animals.

If we were just being extra tuff we would simply ban the dangerous ones and provide extra tuff penalties, or make it extra difficult to obtain the dangerous ones. Rules either stand on their own merit or they don't. Banning "any constricting snake" simply doesn't stand up to logic. It's blatently obvious that it's only there out if ignorance of what constricting snakes are and convenience of wording and/or enforcement. The government is solely responsible for that ingorance and for lack of wantig to do it's job properly.
