Rationality dosen't matter. Criminals using wepons scare the people who abaide by the laws. The poeple who abide by the laws, vote for the most part. In order to get elected politicians need people to vote for them. Inorder to get votes, politicians put together useless and unenforceable laws that sound good on paper but have no other redeaming qualities. Voters hear the ideas and vote for the ideas they like. Therefore bans on things like replica wepons come into effect. and the voting masses are palcated until alternate wepons become popular to commit crimes with and new hot air spews from a politicians ass. but it makes the masses happy.
