When an person takes something that belongs to someone else without their consent, a crime has been committed. Because we have a God given right to property, no one, including a government has the lawful authority to take an individual's property.
Since the beginning of time it has been unlawful to steal the property of another. It is one of the laws of nature and nature's God. Any legislation that seeks to legalize theft is repugnant to the laws of our Creator.
