Some men just want to watch the witch burn
A bit of natter that was cut by Nocturna, but I feel it deserves an explanation.
From Harry Potter:
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.
I don't really feel up to adding it, but someone should probably add Leitha from Eddings' Redemption of Althalus.
