Liberals, almost universally, have a problem with magical thinking.
If something bad is happening, pass a law! Any law will do, after all it’s for SAFETY! or THE CHILDREN! or THE ENVIRONMENT! The law is a magic spell that will alter physics, biology or the environment simply by existing. Don’t want guns in your schools? Then PASS A LAW and PUT UP A SIGN! It’s the modern equivalent of “holy ground” or hex signs on your barn to ward off witches. Have a stalker? Get a restraining order!
Of course, these laws never do what they claim or are intended to do. They are magic spells to ward off evil and they are just as ineffective.
