Defining Abilities with Blocks

So this basically means, if you wanna use accessible_by method, you need to supply an SQL string which represents the same condition you specified in the condition block.

A block’s conditions are only executable through Ruby. If you are Fetching Records using accessible_by it will raise an exception.
