Except that the basic concept of rights themselves preclude the idea of the government restricting people to just what they need. The fact that you don't think someone needs something is also a terrible reason to restrict it. People don't need pie, so why don't we make pie illegal?
Bad analogy. Can you see why? What am I saying, of course you can't. Here's an actual working analogy:
"People don't need pies that are 9 feet across and served at 2700 degrees, why don't we ban that specific sort of pie?"
Edit: To which my response would be "yes, let's ban those sorts of pies".
