# Returns a scope which fetches only the records that the passed ability
# can perform a given action on. The action defaults to :read. This
# is usually called from a controller and passed the +current_ability+.
#
# @articles = Article.can(current_ability)
#
# Here only the articles which the user is able to read will be returned.
# If the user does not have permission to read any articles then an empty
# result is returned. Since this is a scope it can be combined with any
# other scopes or pagination.
#
# An alternative action can optionally be passed as a second argument.
#
# @articles = Article.can(current_ability, :update)
#
# Here only the articles which the user can update are returned. This
# internally uses Ability#conditions method, see that for more information.
