Something like it has been done. In the 1890's the Tennessee legislature passed a law making Pi equal to exactly 3. It was all based on some popular preachers take on Exodus giving the dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant. The Bible was right, to one place, Pi is 3. To two places it is 3.1. To three places it is 3.14, and so on. The preachers problem was that he didn't understand the limits of measurement. The problem with the law was that it couldn't be enforced. It was repealed later.

Natural Laws aren't repeal-able, or enforceable. They just are.

Conservatives dislike big government. Liberals dislike big business.
Let's find common ground.
When big business gets in bed with big government, the baby is ugly.

Gun violence is down over time. Mass shootings are down over time. But the authoritarian mindset cannot let bloodshed go to waste. They will come after your rights at any opportunity, and this is an opportunity.

It's up to us whether the freedom grab stands or drives a reaction and change.

If Puritanism is the fear that someone, somewhere might be having fun, then liberalism is the fear...
