IN-CONTEXT TRANSLATIONS
It's trying to drive in a thumbtack with a hammer.

C'est comme enfoncer une punaise avec un marteau.


This law has been characterized as a tool in the toolbox for police, but I think it's akin to using a hammer to pound in thumbtacks.

Ce projet de loi a été décrit comme un outil à la disposition de la police, mais cela revient plutôt à se servir d'un marteau pour enfoncer des punaises.
