You can't even claim "general welfare" because for the majority of people it hurts them.

You also cannot claim "general welfare" because it is a condition and not an enumerated power just like "necessary and proper".

Of course with "interstate" meaning the same thing as "intrastate" in the commerce clause and "private" meaning the same thing as "public" in the 5th amendment, "general welfare" means anything they want it to mean.

Fighting in a war zone is one thing, going into restaurants in the middle of Paris and opening up with automatic AK-47s into civilians eating dinner is quite another.

People who would do such things are animals and aren't worth dealing with on an even level. If they wish to behave this way, then they should be treated that way.

What distinguishes this from deliberately bombing civilian populations during World War 2?

I would assume that to comply with this law most ISPs would choose to just block by IP using a DNSBL.

That wouldn't require much, if any, extra hardware and would work with HTTPS.

But what if IPs are shared or change often?

I hope they try this. How long will it take for the gambling sites being blocked to realize that they can now add IPs to the block list?
