    When do the rules no longer matter?

    Ok this is a tough topic. I'm a law abiding citizen. Its my way and I don't demean anyone with opposing views on it but I follow the rules of society to the best of my ability. The question is when does that stop.

    For example I have started and participated in threads on this forum regarding ammo prices. A good person here just noted that his ammo stash is his 401k and predicts ammo prices will increase; but what if they prevent you from selling ammo legally? I don't believe that is legal, but we all know our beliefs don't make the law the powers that be do. So if they banned the private sale of ammo - would you still sale it?

    What other rules would you ignore or are we getting closer and closer to ignoring?

    The moment Hillary Rodham Clinton is sworn in as the President of the United States.

    I figure if the rules and regulations don't apply to the President, they don't apply to me either.

    Yep. What robie said.
    Just because I am peaceful does not mean I have forgotten how to be violent.
    If I am to die tonight I shall see that the night does not pass quietly.

    Rules/laws haven't applied to her for decades.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Laws are set by the lawmakers.

    When the lawmakers decide the laws don't apply.....well.......

    Personally I see our nation at a critical tipping point when it comes to the rule of law. We have a chance to start undoing the damage of the Obama administration if Trump is elected and will see further deterioration of the rule of law if Clinton is elected. Bottom line for me, is that I will know when it is time to disregard illegal laws and actions. It will be a line crossed that there will be no coming back from most likely. I am not going to go into specifics, but this man has his limits.

    Its only illegal if you get caught. Have dope peddlers ever worried about the law? Just men do not have to heed unjust laws. Read somewhere that honest folks break the law many times every day. They pass laws every day, we don't really know if we are following the law or not. jmo

    Laws matter if there is a government to enforce them.

    For a day or two in New Orleans it was WROL. Cops were looting, I saw it with my own eyes.

    by hook or by crook..
    I also will say, like above statements, that I will cross that line when I have too.
    And yes, I will cross it.
    Will I be one of the "ill take your stash" guys we see here sometimes? HELL NO, but I wont be pushed into a corner by a govt that I pay for.
