"a law like a blunderbuss"

I'm not sure what the back story is in the opinion piece Of laws and asses from the Times of Malta, but it is definitely one of the more amusing editorials I've read in a while. A snippet:
He was definitely not after filthy lucre. So why let the technicalities of a heavy handed and defective law dictate a course of action that verges on the ludicrous, if not the downright unjust? I should have thought that the concept of the law being in the service of justice, and not the other way around, was more than just a cliché. Oh, for more of that rare commodity - common sense.
I know a few laws I've voiced those words about before. Well, not exactly those words.
