Well, it already passed.
But regardless: I agree, it does deny the sovereignty of Confederacy of Layem. However, that is an in-character issue. Out of character, the people of Layem have done some truly bad things. We're really stepping outside of this game with its nations and regions and such, and considering that we no longer want these players here.

There are certainly things that could be done. Consider, for example, the move toward "enclave" civil engineering: making city spaces where jobs, shopping, residence, and entertainment are all within walking distance, or at most a very short drive (e.g. less than 5 minutes). This would slow down the spread of any infectious agent by making it so most folks don't travel that often between their city enclaves.
''A gunman took to the mall and shot dead three people before a nearby coffee shop waitress dispatched him with five rounds from her automatic pistol. Unfortunately, as she stood over him gun in hand, a mall security guard thought she was the threat and took her out with his submachine gun. He in turn was shot by a libertarian who thought the state was finally coming to take his gun away. By the time the police arrived (and gunned down more would-be heroes who they had mistaken for terrorists), the death toll had reached fifty-seven.''

I got this issue the other day. Peak black humor.
Goodness gracious. I don't ban gun ownership but events like this would absolutely motivate tighter restrictions!
We expect drivers to have licenses and insurance, we expect medical professionals to be licensed and trained. Seems to me fully appropriate that if someone wishes to own a tool of violence like a firearm, they should likewise prove their capacity to use it safely. For God's sake, most jobs require more of a background check than what firearms sellers require. Facebook allows targeting folks who are gun enthusiasts far more easily than any form of licensing or database would.
