Yes, that's exactly why we have a very strict set of rules (in the US, rooted in the constitution) by which (many of) those things are developed. Engineers seem to have a hard time understanding that 1) laws need to be engineered too; it's not a matter of just firing them up 2) regulation doesn't (necessarily) hinder progress of technology because regulation is part of technology and always has been. Zero technology exists without it. The first thing that happened when fire was discovered was people realised it doesn't even come close to doing what it's supposed to do without regulation.
