A hallmark of a dictatorship: The law is what they say it is when then say it. Depending on whether you are inner party, outer party or lumpen proletariat, you can get either an attaboy or a prison term. If Emily Miller causes them enough grief, I wouldn’t be surprised if they find her in violation of DC’s bizarre firearms laws and tossed in jail herself.

This is also the "beauty" of a "living constitution." It gets away from that pesky concept of "rule of law" to the much more comfortable (for the rulers), "rule of man."
