Dumb idea. Condoms can easily be made into crude slingshots for firing projectiles. We are talking about a population that uses hot water to melt plastic cups and form them into crude shanks.

Perhaps every lawmaker should be required to spend a day shadowing correction officers in a prison. That might prevent this recurring sort of stupidity.

This population does seem to be rather inventive.
