You can a call to come across the USA to a state far away from where you live. And to come fast.
Do you have the RKBA enroute?
What? You cannot apply and get permits in 12-24 hrs for those states that you are traveling about it...you do have a right to travel, right?
And if you could (had time to prepare), if you need to go through 10 states, what -- this might cost you a min. of $1000....just to defend yourself.

@davidmcbeth: your personal decision to flaut laws when it is convenient for you to do is your personal business. Publicaly stating your intent to do so may bring you undesired results, but they certainly would not be unexpected. Encouraging others, even by oblique reference, to flaut the law is both morally reprehensible and a violation of forum rules - as you are well aware on at least the latter account.
Yet perhaps the worst thing you have done is to perpetuate the notion that a firearm - especially a handgun - is the only means of self defense.

I don't think flouting man made rules that go against mans nature is "immoral". Just saying......

The law of God is absolute and makes the laws of man obsolete. A person must obey God's laws above all else. Without going into a biblical study dissertation here ... I believe that God intended that we be able to defend ourselves and to use the tools available to us.
Just because abortion is legal does not make it moral.
Remember what Jesus said (paraphrasing perhaps): render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto God that which is God's. This was His answer to the question of the state being able to tax Jews. Now the Jews would have arrested Him for saying "yes" and the gov't officials there would have arrested Him if He said "no". Jesus is saying (here and elsewhere) that gov'ts are OK and that their leaders are ordained by God (although there are exceptions) but that God's law prevails over all other man made laws. A man made law that conflicts with God's must be disobeyed. The word "render" implies something that is owed...so its not that they are imposing unjust taxes ~ this is what you already owe. The meeting was actually a trap to trap Jesus into saying something that He would have been arrested for...He was not arrested and the group left unhappy...they got together and meant to arrest Jesus either by the Jews or by the gov't police.
I don't think that its morally reprehensible ... I believe that I state my opinion on how people should behave that the consequences for not following a law are well known (ie noticed already). Skidmark is free to post an opposite opinion.
I generally do not go into the morality of laws, pro or con, but I don't ignore God's laws ... I cannot. But I do not wish this board to become a forum of a religious v. non-religious examination of our laws....I think many man made laws violate God's laws -- I must not follow such man made laws, even if it means death is the result.

Last time I checked it's not illegal to say I'm going to go break the law. How could he possibly "get in trouble," with the law, presumably, simply for flouting the law? I mean, obviously there are those in law enforcement who might try to persecute him for speaking openly about his contempt for such unjust laws, but that isn't what we're talking about. Or perhaps you meant that he could get in trouble if he actually did what he's saying, and got caught actually breaking those laws?
As to whether or not the administration makes the distinction between a person saying they'll break the law and advising others to do the same, that actually is a good question. The forum rule uses the word advocate. Is he advocating breaking the law, even though he isn't directly suggesting that others follow suit? Well, it would seem that way to me. Obviously I don't find anything wrong with it (in this case), but I understand why the rule exists here. Just my .02

Righteous government, or the righteous lack thereof, is the product of a righteous society, not the producer of it.
