Why not license security engineers/gurus like they do social workers, plumbers and doctors. 

Then after one gets everyone to comply, partner with an insurance company to offer liability and malpractice insurance 
to the licensed penetration testers, just in case someone accidently shuts down a life support system in a hospital as 
they are scanning random Class 'C's on the internet or hijacking root DNS servers in order to play audio streams.

For those who do not comply, set up Senate hearings, and send out letters to those who do not comply, "Are you an 
unlicensed penetration tester?"  If yes, please list all your friends, neighbors, etc that may or may not be unlicense 
penetration testers.  Once they have rounded up all the non complying penetration testers, escort them to local train 
stations, and guide them onto the train, where they will be taken to re-education camps in Lincoln, Nebraska.  --:)
