Should Collecting Rainwater Be Illegal?

I came across this image while doing some research online and it sparked a lot of anger in me. Whether this statement is 100% accurate or not is beyond the point. The fact that our government actually has the audacity to try to regulate this is what bewilders me. Why would it ever be illegal to collect your own rainwater?! This is a vital resource that we are talking about here! We can’t survive more than a couple of days without water. I mean, our bodies are made up of mostly water. It is a natural right damnit! It’s like denying somebody the right to live. It’s just wrong and our politicians need to get it right. Then again, I understand why certain laws forbid people from selling privately collected water…because of health concerns. Regardless, if SHTF, you best bet that rainwater will be a high commodity and a premium barter/trading resource.
