The usual argument against these laws--in my view the correct reasoning--is that there is no reasonable expectation of privacy in acts occurring in public; it is no more a crime to record what is happening than to listen or view it as it occurs. There is no 'eavesdropping' on public speech. Phone conversations, by contrast, do bear a reasonable expectation that the conversation will not be overheard by others.
