Why were they outlawed for being Muggle Artifacts? Broom are too. 18:06, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

I don't recall reading in any of the books an explanation as to why carpets are banned but brooms aren't. I'm guessing like any government, there's always going to be some laws passed that don't always make sense to everyone and that not everyone will be happy with. Muggle or wizard, government is still government. --BachLynn23 12:55, July 30, 2010 (UTC)
