“It’s getting to the point where the only rights a property owner has is to pay taxes and keep his mouth shut,” says John Cumbie, a South Carolina farmer and board member of the South Carolina Landowners Association. Cumbie hasn’t kept his mouth shut, and he feels that as a result he is being targeted by federal and state governmental agencies in the name of the environment."
 

Government Sponsored Stealing: 'Asset Forfeiture Sharing Program'

"Little-known fact: this program is merely the way local police agencies get around local laws that don't let them keep the money and property, but demand it be used by other agencies. So they routinely involve the feds, who have no such restrictions on the stolen property -- yet. The feds keep some and give most of it back to the locals as their "share" of "federal" confiscations. The feds are, in other words, a "money laundering" gang."

"Can you imagine where we'd be today if Al Gore were president?"

"Undoubtedly, we'd have a president proposing new federal intrusions into health care and education ... no constitutional limits on government authority – one who'd appoint a Janet-Reno-type attorney general to enforce his own concepts of morality on all of us. And we know Al Gore would support the current campaign finance reform bill..."

So on Jan. 25, they dispatched campus police to Mr. Washburn's office and ordered him to remove the 1878 Springfield rifle."

NY: Four-time felon gets 15 years for illegal gun (Project Exile)
Submitted by: Blacksnake

"a West Avenue resident who already had 2 felony drug convictions and 1 felony gun conviction, was arrested ... Officers said they found a loaded, stolen handgun under his car seat." "I'll take the rap for it," officers quoted [him] saying. "So what do I get for a gun - one year? So I go to a country club."

But when "Buffalo was included in the Project Exile program ... he faced a minimum sentence of 15 years."

KABA NOTE: First of all, if he hasn't hurt anyone, the most he should be getting is for THEFT (of the gun). Second, Buffalo doesn't need the feds - if he has hurt someone, the state can decide to keep him in longer than 1 year. Either way, this case shows 2 reasons why "Project Exile" is the wrong way to go. For more info, see http://keepandbeararms.com/Exile
