Clearly you have an agenda and aren't interested in views that don't conform to your idea...
Couldn't the same be said about you?
When you let your wildest fears direct your policy, you can justify almost anything.
If we only had Jetpacks, than we could stop 9/11 attacks by sending rocket soldiers to intercept the planes! Also, if we gave the Jetpacks to everyone, if there was ever a school shooting in process, all of the kids could run outside and fly away.
In other words, I want a damn jetpack now!
To refute your point about not being able to paint your house red...Zoning laws do not cover the color of a house. Having said that, there are some people who have HOA rules that restrict the colors that can be used. If you CHOOSE to live in an area covered by a HOA, you're responsible for the rules and regulations that you are CHOOSING to agree to. If you want the freedom to paint your house red, than you can CHOOSE to live in an area that is not covered by a HOA, or go through the HOA process and attempt to have the HOA rules changed. The important point here is that it was your choice to buy a house covered by a HOA. Just like it's your choice to live in the city, state, and country that you currently live in. If I don't like the USA and it's police state aspects, I can choose to move to Sweden, Argentina, or wherever the else I choose to live.
