So now it's permits AND notification, but nevermind that.

Your examples of cases in which it might be reasonable to require
permits are in no way refutations of the many examples in which it is
NOT reasonable to require permits. The ones do not counter the others.

If you're waving guns on the street, obviously you should have
permits or some system of calming the public down.

But a public performance involving guns BUT NOT involving cameras
isn't covered by the new rules.

So, any other examples?
