The few bad apples are what make legislature crack down, so dealers/breeders should make a doubly-concerted effort to evaluate one's qualifications. It is a much better alternative to a government(s) creating rules, regulations, and permit/license requirements for the good guys which comprise 90% of Us.
Now, if You meant "don't like rules or regs" as in illegally catching WC, I will have to contest You. I may not be fond of government, but I do believe they are reasonable and accurate in their assessment of a species' predicament, and therefore list them ("Endangered", "Threatened", or "Special Concern" ) for good reason and justification. These protection laws need to be respected! And I will believe You hold such respect, morals and ethics.
If You meant "don't like rules or regs" as in legally raped WC...well obviously, there's nothing to be regulated, and therefore nothing to complain about. But if a species that occurs in, say, PA was caught in a different state, and PA doesn't allow the sale of native species which these specimens constitute as, there's no way for PA to know if they were caught in, say, Virginia or PA. Thus, I support the authorities taking them away.
