When the law is an Ass...

Then I guess I am an outlaw.

Kurt Hofmann ask the question, "Is 'law abiding gun owner' what we should strive to be?

The "enforce existing gun laws" argument has never made any sense to me. It implies the infringing laws are legitimate and thereby cedes the moral high ground to the enemy. It also means that when realpolitik demands "compromise" the law always moves in the direction of greater regulation.

The best argument is "Repeal existing gun laws". All of them. In a civilized society, the law does not interfere with a peaceable citizen going about his life. If there is violence the job of the police is to show up and make sure the right person got shot.
