Like Kryptonite for Jack Booted Thugs

I was watching the video the other day where this guy rigs his car with video equipment in order to catch a thug with a badge who had been harassing him. The video incidentally lead to the JBT's early retirement.

This got me to thinking. There are several instance that I am aware of, and perhaps more that I'm not, of JBT's harassing a law abiding gun owner, or FFL. What I'm advocating is wherever possible, carry an audio or better yet, video recorder on your person (or on your partner's person), so you can document the abuse for all the world to see. There's a reason the ATF agents at Red's Trading Post don't want anyone to film them.

You see, cameras and recording devices are like Kryptonite is to Superman, or sunlight is to vampires, for JBT's. Have you ever turned on the kitchen light at night, in certain parts of the country? If you have, you know what I'm talking about.

The time of laying back and taking it are over. This isn't an all out civil war, but it is war just the same. There are people in this country, in and out of government, who want to take away your second amendment rights. Over 80% of the FFL's in our country are gone now, and more are closing up shop everyday. Don't for a second believe that this is an accident.

Call your Senators and Congressmen and urge them to vote pro-rights. Vote in every election and vote for the candidate that will best support your rights. Oppose EVERY and ANY anti-rights bill, no matter how small. Give no compromise, because we will get none from those who would take away our rights. Document the abuses of government and share them with the world. Shine the light on them so they cannot hide.

It is only together, no matter what you use your firearm for, that we can keep our rights intact and pass them on to our children and grandchildren.
