Well, at least I got noticed by the New Haven Register Editorial Board. The collectivists attempt to frame us with a "law abiding" Catch 22.

“They have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing." -- Catch 22, Chapter 39, by Joseph Heller.
Gun groups lose ' law-abiding citizen' argument.
And at a rally in Hartford Saturday organized by the "Connecticut Citizens Defense League,' the crowd cheered when speaker Michael Vanderboegh, a gun rights activist from Alabama, urged residents to break Connecticut's new gun laws.
"They will only pay attention to what you do. So defy them. Resist these laws. Evade them. Smuggle in what they command you not to have,' Vanderboegh said.
According to the New Haven Register's report of the 1,500-person rally, "The loudest cheers came when he told them that on Thursday he smuggled a half-dozen 30-round magazines into the state.'
"To Martin Looney, Don Williams, Larry Cafero and John McKinney, I'd like to say this: I just committed a class D felony, you tyrannical morons. ... Catch me if you can,' Vanderboegh said
He talked of a "civil war' brewing over gun regulations such as those passed in Connecticut.
People attending the rally held a large sign that showed the now-banned AR-15 assault-style rifle that was used to murder 26 children and educators in less than 5 minutes at Sandy Hook Elementary School with the words, "Come and take it.' Another person held a picture of Gov. Dannel Malloy with a Hitler mustache and hair-style with the words, "Sieg Heil Malloy.'
And Vanderboegh wrote in November: "VOTE: At least later on you can say you tried everything else before you were forced to shoot people in righteous self-defense of life and liberty.'
This is the collectivist "Law abiding" Catch 22: When they take more of our liberty and property, they use our "law-abiding" inclinations against us. When we shove back, we are no longer law abiding, they claim we no longer have any moral standing and therefore may be killed as criminals for resisting.

Mike The FEDs want a civil war, The rest of the sheep are to stooped to see war brewing just outside the front door. Talk and protest are a waste of resources. We have run out of time to change.

Liars often get punched in the mouth. Then again it depends upon who is offended.

When in ACTUALITY, they are the law BREAKERS the instant they "pass" unconstitutional legislation.
That means we remain law abiding by ignoring their false law, their fake code.

Did ya see the army has been directed to molest Trijicon equipment? Does that mean we can now used die grinders to grind off other offensive things like ummmmm. Well you know. ;)-

I prefer "peaceable citizen". If I'm not disturbing the peace or otherwise violating the NAP, then it's nobody's business, in or out of government, what I own or carry.

It can't be a Catch 22 when anti-constitutional laws are void. Good job. The Flak is always placed near the target.

Carrying magazines IS law abiding.
The big law says "shall not be infringed"; if a lower law says something else, it doesn't count

And if a court finds that they are constitutional, as one recently did in refusing to hear a challenge to New York's new gun control law, well, then, the court is the problem!

I don't think that's the way it works, buddy.

"Peaceable" - agreed. I stopped using "law abiding" years ago.

The "laws" are wrong and enforcing them is evil.

This is why I prefer the term "peaceful" to "law-abiding." Most people, when they hear the word "law," don't think of Natural Law, but rather its opposite, the written demands of politicians and bureaucrats, and collectivists endlessly conflate the two. "Peaceful," though, is harder to deliberately confuse with its opposite, "aggressive." And when somebody attacks a peaceful person, causing them to defend themselves, it's clear who's to blame.
