Many of us probably disagree with at least a few laws that would somehow relate to prepping. For example, where I live there is almost no way to obtain a concealed carry permit unless you are a current or retired law enforcement officer. I don’t like it, I don’t agree with it, but y’know what? I follow the law. Why? Because I don’t feel like having to devote any money toward paying legal fees to fight a charge should I be found carrying a firearm.
See, here’s the thing. Even if you’re in the right and you prevail in a criminal court case, the legal fees can bury you. Plus, the whole time you’re battling it out in court, your weapon has likely been confiscated and is being held as evidence. So, not only are you out the thousands of dollars in attorney fees but your firearm is locked up and unavailable to you.
I have several close friends who are at various levels of law enforcement, from local small town patrol officers all the way up to a few three letter Federal agencies. Many of them don’t agree with some of the laws they enforce, but it is their job to ensure folks are abiding by those statutes.
I can think of few worse situations than to be sitting in the local iron bar hotel when disaster strikes the area.
