DHS SEIZES LARGE GUN COLLECTION CONTAINING ANTIQUE GUNS WITHOUT CHARGING THE COLLECTOR WITH ANY CRIME; THEY CLAIM TO STILL BE INVESTIGATING

DHS has seized 548 handguns and 317 rifles from the northeast Albuquerque home of Robert Adams. They also seized 599 handguns from his office. They had four search warrants. They were investigating him for possible gun smuggling, tax evasion and the violation of importation laws.

They cataloged and confiscated the arms, but did not charge him with anything. They said that the investigation was not over yet. They had been investigating him for three years.

Why DHS? Why not BATF?

Answers:

1.) The timing was excellent, from a Liberal Agendanista point of view.

2.) People who are kept ignorant about guns are also taught to be afraid of them. The more guns shown, the more afraid of them they are. Two guns are four times as scary as one; three guns are nine times as scary as one, and so on.

3.) If BATF was used, it would have appeared to the public that it was less of a threat to national security than if DHS was used.

4.) His home was conveniently near a school. This is great for fomenting fear.

5.) They want to get the gullible members of the public to think that every gun owner has this many guns.

6.) They want to get the gullible public to think that all gun owners are tax cheats and suppliers of arms to the Mexican Cartels and to street gangs. This was implied in their statements.

7.) They were most likely hoping that they would be fired upon by someone, so they have an excuse to respond. In this author’s opinion, this was calculated to be a Ruby Ridge or a Waco.

8.) Once fired upon, they wanted to be able to say that collectors of guns are terrorists, as gun owners had just proven it by firing upon the DHS. For Liberals, one example colors an entire group. All are exactly the same, almost like the Liberal Borg.

9.) They expected this firefight to reduce some of the opposition to federal gun confiscation manoeuvers that is currently evident in the Armed Forces, State Governments, County Sheriffs, and local police. So far, most of the ones who do the fighting and dying in these groups have not bought in to the Liberal Agenda for gun confiscation.

10.) They wanted you to know that they are coming for your guns. Those with the most guns are the first on the list. Resistance is futile.

11.) The decision to use DHS rather than the less popular BATF was most likely made in the White House. These are the exact same people who gave you Ruby Ridge.

12.) It was hoped that a DHS operative or two would be wounded or killed. This would give the White House their much-needed excuse to declare an emergency in that area.

13.) The Declaration of Emergency would allow the DHS to do mere extensive manoeuvers in the area, including house-to-house searches in the immediate area. This would be a test of the current mood of the people.

14.) The results of that test would be analyzed to see if the federal governments scare tactics were having an effect on the main enemy of the federal government, that enemy being the people of the United States of America.

15.) If these scare tactics are working well, they will be continued and escalated. If they are not working, or are having the unanticipated and undesirable effect of uniting the United States in its opposition to the usurper federal government, these tactics will need to be modified or suspended.

16.) If a Declaration of Emergency could be declared without major opposition or suspicion of motive arising within the higher levels of the federal government, additional Executive Orders could be signed, and there would be less opposition to this from Congress. Also, this scenario could aid the floundering gun bills currently under consideration in the Congressional committees.

But, their little plan crapped the bed. No one resisted. No one was fired upon.

Rook checks pawn.

So, we citizens of the United States of America want to know, how are you federal Liberal Agendanistas going to up your game now?

I have a proposal. We need to show them directly that we are not intimidated in the least. When they do something like this in your area, all gun owners who support the Constitution who live in that area should be carrying two or three days later, for a period of at least two to three days. Take your gun to the drive-through at Wendy’s, or food shopping, or to get gas. Park your vehicle at the end of the driveway when you are shoveling the snow from that end of it. Make sure your gun is in it, and that it is visible.

Or, drive around the area where the planned and staged intimidation event happened for an hour or so with your guns in the rear window rack. Make sure of the carry laws in your locality before you do this. Take your gun transportation rights to the max. If they need to be cased, case them. If the ammo has to be in the trunk, do that. Wear your hunting license if that is required. The point is, if your city is being buzzed by black helicopters, or a neighbor’s collection has been confiscated by DHS, or there are a dozen UN vehicles recently staged on your block, you just need to just exercise your rights and carry for a few days where all the people can see it. That is all. Armed and visible.

If you are in the store for groceries, make sure that someone else is in your car. It needs to be someone who knows how to use that gun. It is also not advisable to spend five hours in a seedy bar with guns in the window rack. Do you really expect them to be there when you get out? If you have to stash them in the trunk while you are in the store, do it in a place close to the store, but where no one can see what you did.

We need to show these power-mad bastards that there are a whole lot of us, and we are not afraid to exercise our God-given, Common-law, and Constitutionally-codified rights.

If you hear of a DHS operation in your area doing their dog-and-pony show, everyone should make sure that every other citizen in that area has seen at least one citizen legally transporting their arms before that week is out. Do not directly engage them. Just show them that you are ready, by carrying your arms after their intimidation event.

For the time being, these will all be relatively isolated instances, as they are just starting to test the new waters. The Courts will get involved, and it will take years to see where the Maginot Line is now. Let us just show them enough choppy waves that they are afraid to attempt to launch their boat.

There is a pro-gun rally planned for DC on 7-25-13. Hopefully, it is not being held too late. Try to be there if you can. If you cannot, I have a second plan.

There will also be Guns Across America rallies on 2-8-13 at a lot of State Capitols. I provided a NJ information link below. Governor Christie is slated to speak there. You should be able to find a link for your State’s rally through a proper search online.

Many of us who would like to go cannot, for whatever reason. But, we can show our support on 2-8-13 and 7-25-13. Let us make them National Gun Owners’ Carry Days. The same thing. Take your gun out where everyone can see it, even if you are only sawing firewood, cutting the grass, or going out for an ice cream. That way, you can feel like you are doing something to help your fellow Patriots who could make the rallies.

Anyone can repost this article to any blog. You have my permission to do so, do not bother asking for it. If you agree with the National Gun Owners’ Carry Days idea, share this with all of your friends.

  1. Gary Harper says:

    Bret is correct in the fact that a warrant is designed to look for whatever is listed in the warrant. That is why warrants list broader categories, so they can look for related items they may not have thought of in the first place. Generally charges follow the investigation. I would think that if they had something significant on him, they would have charged him right away. We shall see. My premise was that they went after him specifically BECAUSE he had lots of guns and probably HAS committed crimes. It would benefit THEIR cause if he was gulity and fired on them. The one thing Bret missed is that most Liberals think gun owners are as afraid of government enforcers as they are, so most Liberals think people saying they will resist is all just talk. This includes a few Libwrals at the very top.

  2. hammernh says:

    If he broke the law CHARGE him.
    Never mind the Nazi style intimidation – file your charge(s).

  3. Bret says:

    You also failed to mention the fact that this was in New Mexico where there is no gun registration requirement.
    You also failed to mention that a majority of the guns had the serial numbers filed off, Which is required for registration of a fire arm transfer in any state that does require registration.

    You also failed to mention the case against him in Canada for illegal sale of fire arms.
    You also failed to mention that he is selling fire arms in the United States.

    You also failed to mention that this gentlemen does not possess a valid FFL, which prohibits him from selling firearms as a dealer across state lines not to mention National Borders.

    Because he is in New Mexico he does not need one to sell within NM, and Federal Law allows private owners to sell from their own collections without background checks.

    You also failed to mention that this person BROKE THE LAW AND IS A CRIMINAL.

    You want this person to be a martyr for those of us who are LAW ABIDING GUN OWNERS?
    I want to distance myself from people like this. People like this are what give people like me a bad name.

    • Michael Lawrence says:

      You are assuming he’s guilty

    • Gary Harper says:

      I gave the link to the story that says he is in trouble with Canada. DHS could possibly be involved for that reason. The link also says that there were missing numbers and paperwork. They are investigating possible income tax evasion.

      If they have four warrants, they should be able to charge him with something. We will see if he gets arrested, and how that turns out in court. That is why the link was presented, so you could put your two cents into the discussion.

      It does not change a thing about the timing and purpose of it all.

      Thanks for your comments. as always, you are a wealth of information on the laws of the land. You provide others with a starting point to continue their own investigations. You are a credit to all Patriots.

      I personally do not want to see anyone shot or martyred for any reason. I firmly believe that someone doing so would be acceptable to the opposition.

      • For Gary Harper :
        Did you say something about “income tax evasion”? Tell me Mr. Harper, where in the law (Internal Revenue Code) do you find that income tax evasion is a Federal crime? Where in all of the 1,563 code sections of subtitle A Title 26, do you find the statute that makes anyone “liable” for the income tax? Where in subtitle C of Title 26 do you read where a non-federal private sector citizen is subject to voluntary payment of the income tax? When you think that this man may have committed another crime such as what you suggested, income tax evasion, here’s your opportunity to set the record straight that income taxes are owed by anyone and that income tax evasion is a crime.

  4. Bret says:

    Damn i love a good conspiracy… DHS, FBI, CIA, NSA etc have no authority to perform house to house searches at its whim or under any circumstances including those provisions within the National Defense Act. signed on January 1. As far as Ruby Ridge and Waco and the rest? That is the last thing they want or need. That is like gasoline on a fire. That would kick start rebellion. Before people start in on everything that is wrong about this event.

    Please go read the damn 4th Amendment. A warrant can be issued without charges filed. A warrant can be executed without charges filed. A warrant must have probable cause and must identify the reasons and articles to be searched and or seized as possible evidence. Why was DHS used instead of ATF? Its their purpose? If the case was strictly about Firearms violations between state lines or something, sure ATF. Soon as you start talking National Borders that means DHS.

    Insurrection and Posse Comitatus Acts:

    § 331. Federal aid for State governments
    Whenever there is an insurrections in any State against its government, the President may, upon the request of its legislature or of its governor if the legislature cannot be convened, call into Federal service such of the militia of the other States, in the number requested by that State, and use such of the armed forces, as he considers necessary to suppress the insurrection.

    § 332. Use of militia and armed forces to enforce Federal authority

    Whenever the President considers that unlawful obstructions, combinations, or assemblages, or rebellion against the authority of the United States, make it impracticable to enforce the laws of the United States in any State or Territory by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, he may call into Federal service such of the militia of any State, and use such of the armed forces, as he considers necessary to enforce those laws or to suppress the rebellion.

    § 333. Major public emergencies; Interference with State and Federal law

    (a) USE OF ARMED FORCES IN MAJOR PUBLIC EMERGENCIES.–

    (1) The President , by using the militia ormay employ the armed forces , or both, or by any other means, shall take such measures as he considers necessary to, including the National Guard in Federal service, to–

    (A) restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that–

    (i) domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order; and

    (ii) such violence results in a condition described in paragraph (2); or

    (B) suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy if it– such insurrection, violation, combination, or conspiracy results in a condition described in paragraph (2).

    (2) A condition described in this paragraph is a condition that–

    (1) (A) so hinders the execution of the laws of a State or possession, as applicable, and of the United States within that State or possession, that any part or class of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law, and the constituted authorities of that State or possession are unable, fail, or refuse to protect that right, privilege, or immunity, or to give that protection; or

    (2)(B) opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.

    (3) In any situation covered by clause (1) paragraph (1)(B), the State shall be considered to have denied the equal protection of the laws secured by the Constitution.

    (b) NOTICE TO CONGRESS.–

    The President shall notify Congress of the determination to exercise the authority in subsection (a)(1)(A) as soon as practicable after the determination and every 14 days thereafter during the duration of the exercise of the authority.

    In any situation covered by clause (1), the State shall be considered to have denied the equal protection of the laws secured by the Constitution.

    Section 1076 of H.R. 5122.ENR allows the President to:
    “…employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to… restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States…, where the President determines that,…domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order; suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy…”

    This act attempts to nullify the Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C. 331-335) and gives the President the legal ability to declare Martial Law under any condition he so chooses.

    The Posse Comitatus Act outlaws willful use of any part of the US Military to execute the law unless expressly authorized by the Constitution or an Act of Congress. History supplies the grist for an argument that the Constitution prohibits military involvement in civilian affairs subject to only limited alterations by Congress or the President, but the courts do not appear to have ever accepted the argument unless violation of more explicit constitutional command could also be shown. The provision for express constitutional authorization when in fact the Constitution contains no such express authorizations has been explained alternatively as a meaningless political face saving device or as an unartful reference to the President’s constitutional powers. The express statutory exceptions include the legislation which allows the President to use military force to suppression insurrection, 10 U.S.C. 331-335, and sections which permit the Department of Defense to provide federal, state and local police with information and equipment, 10 U.S.C. 371-381.

    In other words: The combination of the Insurrection Act and the NDA or each on their own cannot be called into play unless the State asks for help. The Governor of the State is responsible for making the call to invite the assistance of the Federal Government under the Insurrection Act, Posse Comitatus Act, and the NDA. The State Police and State Guard will then fall under the command of the CnC and the Governor is now an adviser.

    The law says: No glove, no love.
