    Hard Question The Law

    Probably written a variation of this question a dozen times and I normally hit delete before posting. I want to be as hypocritical as I can be and still get an honest answer if I can.

    When it comes to guns and having them do you adhere to the law as you know it’s enforced, as you believe it should be or under your God given rights as a human? I don’t speak only of in your jurisdiction but others as well?

    To be fair I need to provide an example and I shall. I get asked this by family, friends and so why not you: do you Stowe away a firearm on the boat knowing it will cost you freedom and more in some locations and I’ll answer: sometimes yes. Not always for example I won’t go thru the canal because Columbia and Nicaragua are jails I probably wouldn’t survive in, but Europe no problem.

    I obey the law.
    At age 70 and on Social Security I’m too old to go to jail and too poor to post bail.

    I obey constitutional law. I have to admit that I have violated maritime law because I believe the law of nature and nature's God trumps maritime law.

    My official public statement is to obey the law. Having said that, What one does under the radar is up to them. Know the consequences and benefits prior to acting. There is an old saying that the best place to be armed is where it is forbidden.

    I obey the law to the best of my ability. Some times those that enforce laws don't even know the law. Example the ATF. There may come a time when I am faced with doing what is right or follow an unjust and constitutional law. In that case I will do what is right.

    I'm more of a knife guy, I always carry one, a switchblade to be specific. Of course, all the fun has been blunted now. The State of Wisconsin made switchblades legal about two years ago.

    I'm just a year younger that Rice Paddy Daddy. And I'm far too pretty to go to jail...

    So far to the best of my ability and knowledge, . . . I will make a valiant attempt to follow the law.

    In fact, . . . because of their laws: I avoid Chicago and NY state like the plague. New Jersey and all of New England are off my "list".

    I double check the laws of different states before I go on any kind of road trip, . . . avoiding potential problems if I can.

    I spent serious money to have an AR I can lay on my passenger seat fully loaded and ready, . . . in Ohio that is a pistol, . . . and Rock River sold my AR as a pistol so I am legal.

    Most of that is the same as RPD and others: too old to spend time incarcerated, . . .

    May God bless,

    Do the criminals obey the letter of the law?? Guess I'd take my chances and protect myself and that doesn't mean bringing a knife to a gun fight.

    Dwight sounds like you've got that Northern efficiency, Southern charm going on. Maybe the Midwest is a mix of both worlds, I don't know.

    You can carry in Vermont if you're a resident. Maine too. Non-resident permits are available in Maine.

    Vermont is slowly swirling down into the liberal toilet. Theirs biggest cesspool is in Burlington Vt.

    They still have no restrictions/permits/licenses needed. They have started to jump on the "ban" wagon.......

    Lots of liberals have moved there in last 30 years. There was a movement, "Take back Vermont" in the 1990s, well it didn't succeed, Sanders is a Senator.........
