Next step...confiscation!!!
My car has been registered for some time, and as I have used common sense and safe driving practices the government has not yet confiscated it. Cars, guns, drones are all big business so there are powerful forces working against confiscation. But they are all hazardous, and when misused should be confiscated. I'M OK, YOU'RE OK, as the book said. But I bet you know some people who make you uncomfortable owning any one of these.
Common sense is not as common as we might wish.
