Guns don't kill people... : circa 400BC

Those same things from which we get good can also be for us a source of hurt, or else we can avoid the hurt. For instance, deep water is useful for many purposes, and yet again harmful; for there is danger of being drowned. A technique has therefore been invented: instruction in swimming.
--From Maxims of Democritus--

Clearly, we should ban deep water.

Outlaw deep water and only outlaws will have deep water.

Hmmm. Lacks a certain zing. I'll have to work on it.

Lol. Of course, all those water animals managed before we invented this technique..
