"We gun owners routinely say to one another that we have the "right" to keep and bear arms. Honestly, though: what kind of "right" do we have if we are afraid to use it?
There is one federal agency whose job is to instill fear into gun owners and dealers. That agency is BATFE.
When we're afraid to make a purchase at a gun show, own an interesting collection of firearms, or effectively protect our own home and family, then we've already lost most of the right to keep and bear arms.
Notice the key word: afraid. Simple fear of being investigated or prosecuted is enough to deter honest citizens from having, owning, using, or even taking an interest in firearms. When you realize the staggering cost of legal defense against even a bogus federal prosecution, you have every reason to be afraid. And the BATFE has always relied on our fear."
[and you don't have to be Jewish to join that excellent organization]
Here's one example that'll curl your short-hairs:
from Red's Trading Post "Idaho's Oldest Gun Shop 1936"
The recent barrage of attacks against us by the ATF [Alcohol Tobacco, and Firearms Agency] are making it more apparent that this is what the JPFO describes it as which is a "Dangerous, Vindictive Government Agency". This is an Agency that continues to make criminals out of honest law abiding citizens.
We have arranged for plain clothed security to be available. Many have stated that they could not make it to Twin Falls. I would highly encourage you to contact the JPFO and host a showing of THE GANG at your local theater. This is not a film that we should buy and let it sit on a shelf. This is a tool and the more that we get people to understand what is happening and get people to see the erosion of their rights that is taken place by a bunch of heavy handed thugs.
Agent Caleb Rushing stated to me during our 2005 audit "Personally, I do not feel that anyone should own guns, but thats just my personal opinion." He also stated to my mom and I after just telling us about a inspection that he did on an explosives dealer "I just love to F*@k with those guys". He told us of a gentleman in his class who was a former gun dealer who had decided to join the ATF, he stated that the former dealer told him that "he was tired of getting f*@ked with and now he could f*@k with other dealers." This is the mentality, this is the arrogance...it is time to Boot the BATFE!

Who's checking what guns and other weapons they have in these Moslem compounds? Is anybody checking whether adequate backgound checks on those who handle, fire, or have ready access to guns. The Government?

FBI HELPS ISLAMBERG ALFUQRA TERROR TRAINING, HIKING AND MOUNTAINEERING CLUB
Radical Muslim paramilitary compounds flourishing across the United States
Islamberg not the only radical Muslim compound flourishing in North America
By Judi McLeod
Monday, May 21, 2007
Islamberg is just one of what is thought to be a half dozen radical Muslim paramilitary compounds flourishing across the United States, this one nestled in dense forest at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains on the outskirts of Hancock, New York.
Canada, home to at least one such compound, is no safe ground.
Update on story: May 22, 2007"Islamberg" founder Sheikh Gilani blames Doug Hagmann for CFP story
Update on story: Blogger who posted CFP Islamberg story had life threatened
Now that the photos of the two unidentified FBI types have been published, we will undoubtedly hear that they were merely working undercover. But some sticklers would consider saying cheese from the dinner table of the enemy is over the top.
Hundreds of letters have deluged (CFP) since it published a story with pictures of Springtime in Islamberg, written by The Day of Islam author Dr. Paul Williams with the able assistance of Doug Hagmann, Bill Krayer and Michael Travis.
Many letter writers complain that local authorities are telling them they have never heard of the compound.
Islamberg is an al Fuqra house. "Fuqra has had a disturbing U.S. presence for more than 20 years." (The weekly Standard, March 18, 2002). "Today, half a dozen Fuqra residential compounds in rural hamlets across the country shelter hundreds of members, some of whom, according to intelligence sources, have been trained in the use of weapons and explosives in Pakistan."
In a world where authorities make like terrorism doesn't exist, Fuqra's founder and bossman, Sheikh Mubarik Ali Hasmi Shah Gilani, is not only alive and well--he has a road "Sheikh Gilani Lane" named after him. This road is not in faraway Pakistan, but right in Charlotte County, Virginia.
Charlotte County is a rural farming community in Central Virginia near the North Carolina border.
Like its counterpart in Hancock, New York, it is inhabited by proud Americans many whose sons and daughters are fighting for our freedom in Iraq.
"This is not only an embarrassment to the citizens of Charlotte County it is a disgrace to the entire country and an insult to the victims of 9/11 and those fighting overseas in the war against terrorism," wrote Martin Mawyer, president of the Christian Action Network.
"Sheikh Gilani has rubbed shoulders at international terrorist confabs with gunslingers from Hamas and Hezbollah, their mullah backers, and Osama bin Laden. And he has trained fighters for the battlefields of Kashmir, Chechnya and Bosnia." (the weekly Standard).
Dropping in on radical Muslim paramilitary compounds isn't good for your health. Two bloggers who posted the plucky Williams' Islamberg story had their lives threatened.
Most infidels, including even the local undertaker, are denied access to compounds such as Islamberg.
Indeed, the very undertaker denied access wrote a letter telling the author/journalist he was surprised he made it off the compound with his life intact.
The undertaker says he has delivered bodies to the complex but has yet to be granted entrance. "They come and take the bodies from my hearse," he told Williams. "They won't allow me to get past the sentry post. They say that they want to prepare the bodies for burial. But I never get the bodies back. I don't know what's going on there but I don't think it's legal."
As far as is known, Gilani launched his first U.S. operation without interference from any authority back in 1980.
By the 1990s, Fuqra's communes were being touted as havens where Muslim converts--many of them inner-city blacks, sometimes recruited in prison--could find new direction for their lives.
Why aren't people reading about these flourishing compounds in their hometown newspapers?
Does it require too much work for the mainstream media, or do politically correct times keep the topic taboo?
You'd think that these compounds would be a priority for Homeland Security, but they aren't.
One of the letters to Williams via CFP was from a member of Homeland Security asking for more information!
It seems to be politically incorrect to write about radical Muslim paramilitary compounds flourishing on American soil and politically incorrect to talk about terrorism.
For some American and Canadian citizens, it's welcome to life with a deadly enemy living right next door.
