Others have answered this, but the overarching dilemma is that plainly unconstitutional laws can be passed in a matter of days/weeks -- or even hours, in the case of NY -- but then take YEARS or DECADES to undo through the courts. Meanwhile, law-abiding citizens must deal with them and the a-hole legislators will be long gone/out of office by the time their foolishness is corrected, so they pay no political price for it.
“Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.” — Robert A. Heinlein

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds” — Samuel Adams
