Then they should try ...gasp...enforcement!

Restricting access to surplus gear will do precisely nothing to FM piracy, 
however it IS easy, it IS splashy and it does play well politically to the

FM transmitter technology is , like most electronics, ever more 
approachable to the average Joe.  You can't legislate it away.
