It is the law. However laws are not static. People can and often do start campaigns which lead to a law being changed. If you don't like a law and enough other people agree with you it can be changed.
Less griping and more work to change laws.
The unpleasant point is when you really don't like a law and there isn't enough public support to change it. The best I can say then is to either ignore the law and be willing to face the penalties or deal with it.
