A bit of natter that was cut by Nocturna, but I feel it deserves an explanation.

From Harry Potter:

  • In addition it brings up the question why actual wizards and witched decided to go into hiding at all, if Muggles were (largely) no threat?

Hagrid answers this in Philosopher's Stone (book only). It's to avoid the hassle of dealing with both the Muggle who wants to Burn the Witch! (and/or Super Registration Act the witch), as well as the Muggle who constantly comes running to the witch for magical solutions to everyday problems. In addition, Word of God is that a Muggle with a shotgun trumps a wizard with a wand nine times out of ten.
