I don't see these laws as being an extreme. I think they're the result of elaboration. What their proponents think of as clarification.
They take discretionary power away from law enforcement which to some extent may cause more problems than it is worth.
I didn't intend it to be taken to extremes. What interests me is the middle where overlap of social contracts and laws allow social contracts function well in a socio-cultural setting. I hope that was clear rather than obscure.
Take open carry for example. It may be legal, but it's not socially acceptable, so we don't do it. A cultural norm that keeps members in check. So when police see someone with a semi-automatic they might ask him why
. Because it's not really a statement about Constitutional rights. It's far more about his identity and ego. Perhaps about misapplying statistics as well, ie innumeracy.
