There Ought To Be a Law?

It used to make sense when someone said, "There ought to be a law." I'm not saying the sentiment made sense - just the logic. 

Now if someone says, "There ought to be a law," it's nonsensical in logic and sentiment. There is already a law for everything. And we should have figured out by now that that is the dumbest thing in the world.

John Stossel report, "Illegal Everything" on Fox News 
original air date ~2/26/12

The story @ 4:56 is just ridiculous. The U.S. government decided that the importer violated 4 Honduras laws - which *Honduras* said didn't apply in this case. But the Feds decided to pursue prosecution under the Lacey Act 1981 Amendments (which makes violating any foreign fish/wildlife law a crime in the US) and put the guy away for 6 years! So our government *interprets* and enforces foreign law.
