FBI Visiting Gun Shops to Investigate “People talking about Big Government”
#1
Quote:In keeping with the tradition of the FBI’s position on gun rights, it appears the Bureau is working overdrive to monitor and harass gun owners and the gun shops that sell to them.

While government surveillance of gun purchases and gun owners is nothing new, a recent visit by an FBI Counterterrorism agent to a Columbia, South Carolina gun shop has only reinforced the knowledge that the U.S. government is growing more and more concerned by the prospect of a well-armed populace – particularly one that prefers to live without constant government interference in their personal lives.

While the narrative surrounding “counterterrorism” operations used to eviscerate civil liberties after 9/11 was initially based upon the threat of Muslim fundamentalists, that narrative has clearly shifted to a focus on gun owning, law-abiding American citizens – both those who are politically active and those who are blissfully ignorant of current events.

For many, this shift of focus has been quite the surprise. Thus, when the Columbia, South Carolina gun shop in question was approached by an FBI counterterrorism agent on Monday, April 14, the individuals who spoke with him were somewhat alarmed to realize that the agent’s concern was not fundamentalist Muslims but Americans who promote small government.

According to an individual who was present during the visit (this person will remain anonymous for obvious reasons), the agent pulled up in a regular vehicle in plain clothes and took a look around the shop as if he were considering a purchase before approaching the staff and announcing that he was with the FBI Counterterrorism unit.

“Never in a million years would I have thought this guy was a fed,” said the witness. “He was in a completely normal vehicle. Regular clothes. Everything. I would have thought this guy was just some downhome country boy.”

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

It is a sad state when law abiding gun owners are the enemy, let alone suspected terrorists. I personally dont know anyone who is happy with the .gov but none of the people I have met talked or gave any inclination of wanting to do harm to the .gov or anyone else for that matter. We are not the problem. There are hundreds of other things they should be expending resources on.

Let me get this straight: FBI guy walks in, looking like any other customer, announces/identifies himself, and carries on a lengthy convo about "suspicious activity" by average citizens who buy guns with cash, etc.

He gives them a flyer outlining the "suspicious activity" in gun shops the FBI considers dangerous to our government.

Sounds hokey to me. This story is a good way to instill even more paranoia if you ask me. Dodgy
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Ha Ha. You think? Big Grin I also love that these sources are almost always anonymous and a quick view of the site these stories are posted on should tell you all you need to know.

Yet our boy keeps posting while we label others as trolls........Rolleyes
