Mike Vanderboegh is the relentless advocate for gun rights who broke the story of the ATF’s Fast and Furious anti-gun running gun running operation. The Sipsey Street Irregulars blogger is also a self-admitted insurrectionist. True to form, at 6:10 into the above video Mr. Vanderboegh adds “gun smuggler” to his resume. “The facsimile of a semi-automatic pistol that some of you hold in your hands was smuggled into your state from the South. Manufactured in Georgia, trans-shipped to Alabama, it came across your state line in the trunk of a car.” The kicker? They were “sponge guns.” But Vanderboegh wasn’t making the Brady Campaign’s point about criminals tooling-up thanks to leaky state borders. Not at all . . .
Relying heavily on Revolutionary War history, Vanderboegh told, indeed exhorted the crowd to smuggle illegal firearms and ammunition into the Constitution State.
So defy them. Resist their laws. Evade them. Smuggle in what they command you not to have. Only by our ACTS will they be impressed. Then, if they mean to have a civil war, they will at least have been informed of the unintended consequences of their tyrannical actions.
Again I say – Defy. Resist. Evade. Smuggle. If you wish to stay free and to pass down that freedom to your children’s children you can do no less than to become the lawbreakers that they have unconstitutionally made of you. Accept that fact. Embrace it. And resolve to be the very best, most successful lawbreakers you can be.
One last thing before I go. On Thursday I smuggled a half-dozen 30 round AR-15 standard capacity magazines into Connecticut in deliberate disobedience of the new state diktat.
So to Martin Looney, Mike Williams, Larry Cafarro and John McKinney I’d like to say this: I just committed a “D” Class felony, you tyrannical morons—prove it—which you can’t—and catch me if you can.
Do you get the feeling Vanderboegh wants to be caught? Well if you didn’t before you will now . . .
And I’ll tell you something else. When the new ammo restrictions go into effect the first week of July, I’ll be back — with two full crates of 7.62×39 ball ammunition and I will transfer said ammunition into the hands of a Connecticut citizen without the state’s permission or paperwork.
And after I break their unconstitutional laws again, I’ll be sitting in Frank Pepe’s Pizza down in New Haven waiting for Looney and Company to come arrest me . . .
OK, well, sure, civil disobedience is always an option. But much as it pains me to say it, I think there could be better “test cases” than a man who could be so easily painted as an “extremist.”
Then again, it is what it is. Someone’s going down for these unconstitutional laws. Might as well be someone who knows his history with balls the size of New Jersey.
