Ignoring some laws

“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”  -Heinlein

Obama's massive new regulatory scheme propagating massive new extra legal gun control regime, all flowing from his whim and will alone appears to be... yes, a nothing burger.  As I suspected yesterday.

Safely ignored.

There are plenty of actual gun LAWS that many of us/you ignore routinely.  Some of those laws we/you ignore are even felonies.  Silly ones, too.  So what if I don't wait a full 7 days to get my gun?  What does that provide?  I have other guns already.  Getting this next one now or in a week... So?  But if the FFL gives me the pistol on day 2... we both go to prison.  Pfff.

I have never violated that 7 day waiting period thing in Maryland, for the record.

Lots of other gun felonies are impossible to prove unless you go out of your way to buy a gun from an FBI informant wearing a wire.  And if you can keep your mouth shut.  (But the newish Obama EO don't even rise close to that level.) 

It's not wise to admit you commit firearms felonies.  Especially if you admit it online.  Like on your blog.  Like right now.  Luckily, I am not admitting that because I have not done anything like that.  But.  I don't play by their rules, the state of Maryland's.  I never actually break the law, I just avoid participating.  Maryland doesn't want me to buy an 11 round or greater magazine and will throw me in the hoosegow if I do in the state?  Fine.  Now I buy extra in Virginia.  Because that isn't illegal.  I'd never buy a hunting rifle or shotgun in Maryland now.  I don't need to.  Buy it in Pennsylvania.  Perfectly ok in either state but why play by MY state's crappy rules.  Or I just don't buy guns, period.  I advise others to, but I have a bunch already, so no harm just now until the rules are rolled back.  And I never wanted to buy a gun out of the trunk of a car at a gun show before people told me I couldn't.   I am not the only one.  Extra people have made private sale purchases simply because Leftists don't want them to do that. 

There are others out there.  Some are readers, I bet.  That go further than that.  Further than I do.  And more power to you.  I don't want to know the details and I don't want to hear your confession.  Just keep up that good work and be a good citizen otherwise.

Just for the record, I have NEVER violated a Firearms Law.

As long as it was constitutional.

I lost all my guns in a tragic boating accident.
