Why not?
If they can, we can also.
If they do, we can do, also.
Usually they are less than us.

> Do you want the 50% below average intelligence to buy them?

Why not?
They will harm themselves more than they will harm us.
For the lucky ones, we can dispose of them after.

> Do you want the insane or temporarily depressed people to buy them?

They can buy so many things that can harm them and others that is not a 
problem. No way a depressed or a insane is able to build something very 
dangerous. The sane are a greater danger than the insane.

> Do you want your estranged wife or furious alienated teenagers to buy them?

The furious alienated teenagers are for the insane asylums.
The estranged wives are dangerous only when they have a lawyer better 
than your.

Natural selection is always working.
Shit happen, sometimes.

After decades we need to see other? It is boring. It didn't happened 
anything important.
