KeepAndBearArms.com -- Some inside the United States government view me as an enemy of the state. Why? Because I speak my mind and I tell the truth, even when the government doesn’t like the truth. In my free report entitled “Taxable Income” (available at www.taxableincome.net) and in my video, “Theft By Deception (Deciphering the Federal Income Tax)” (available at www.theft-by-deception.com), I use the law itself to show how the income tax has been grossly misrepresented to the American public, and misapplied by the IRS. In short, according to the law itself, only those engaged in certain kinds of international trade receive income subject to the income tax. The rest of us don’t owe a dime, despite what “conventional wisdom” says. That is what the law itself has shown for over 80 years.
But this article is not about tax law.
"The reason tyrants are afraid of armed citizens is because tyrants do things which sometimes make people want to shoot them."
On May 6, 2003, in an effort to terrorize me into shutting up (under the guise of a “search warrant”), the IRS staged an armed invasion of my home, stole most of my computers (which I have since gotten back), and all of my financial records. They also stole a couple hundred copies (every copy they could find) of my “Theft By Deception” video. They obviously wanted to keep it from the public, even though they know that the video is perfectly legal, and even though the Supreme Court specifically says that what they did is a violation of the First Amendment. (Incidentally, their attempt at censorship via terrorism failed, as I was restocked the next day, and there are now about 15,000 copies of the video in circulation.)
But this article is not about the First Amendment.
during the day one agent, who was the least mentally stable of the bunch, kept harping on the fact that I had taken a firearm with me to go to the 7-11 at 2:00 a.m., describing me as “paranoid” for doing so

Your painting a picture like anyone with a legal handgun is a cowboy which is so far from the truth.

Actually, a great many of gun fanatics are ignorant, arrogant f-tards that treat the casual handgunner like they are a piece of crap...but that's besides the point...

The fact that you are unwilling -not even unable, unwilling- to defend yourself is both troubling and perplexing.
Originally posted by DeusExAnyways, as many know (but few are left to attest to), giving in to an attacker's demands does not by any means guarantee your safety

If someone broke into my house, would I have turned it on them? Perhaps, but not with any intention to harm only to scare (which I suppose many petty criminals use them for). But I doubt I could kill anyone....

Producing a firearm in a confrontation is a good way to defuse the situation, but it could also escalate. If you're unwilling to act, you're dead, or worse.
