Overregulation is the root of all evil police?

SaysUncle linked to a thoughtful piece on the nexus between police abuse and overregulation.  "Impossible missions" to impose the will of a slim majority upon a large minority are doomed to failure.  Prohibition and the war on online gambling are cited as examples -- as is the possibility of a true "war on guns" looking more like a low-grade civil war than law enforcement.  In light of the recent controversy over Mike Vanderboegh's letter, I'd like to use this article as an example of how to do it right.  We're a long way from nationwide "gun prohibition" and it's important to make that clear.
