Is this anything but a feel-good cosmetic endeavor?
What are they going to do, legislate against all international trade in hammers and nails, saws, cutting torches, car batteries etc.?

Just the next step up from the EU ban on exporting chemicals to the US that are used for executing people there, primarily pentobarbital (by its Danish manufacturer in 2011) and sodium piothental (by the European Union in 2012). Which has indeed had some effect over the last three years or so once stocks in the US began running dry.
