Anyone watching the History Channel series 'Vikings?"

Really good, and seems historically accurate how the Vikings got around to invading the English Islands.

The good people of Sharpsburg, Maryland must've thought they were being invaded by Vikings...with helicopters.

Not that the good people of Sharpsburg, Maryland should be awestruck by Gubbmint troops in action. During the Civil War, the Battle of Sharpsburg/Antietam went down in history as America's single bloodiest day of fighting.

Though no shots were fired when the FBI agents came a'storming prepper Terry Porter's house. Somebody anonymously turned in Mr. Porter as a survivalist. I don't know if any reward is forthcoming to said anonymous tipster.

But Mr. Porter was busted for some kind of drug violation back in 1992, and it took a Viking like horde of 150 Federales to storm Mr. Porter's Casa. The Vikings confiscated four shotguns and three rifles.

What caliber, I do not know. Will any of the long rifles be donated to the Tucson Police Department, I do not know.

Heather Hamilton, one of Porter’s neighbors, mentioned, “You had helicopters flying over, SWAT crews down here, excavation equipment was brought in, and armored vehicles.” Hamilton went on to say, “It was ridiculous for [the man] who would not hurt another person for anything. Unless you would attack him, he’s not going after anyone.” She concluded by saying the raid was a “big waste of taxpayer money.”

And some days citizens simply wonder why real crime is so rampant in America.......when the FBI is focusing on preppers.




150 Officials Including FBI Raid Nonviolent Prepper and Confiscate Firearms

Whether it be in preparation for defense against a totalitarian government takeover, or for a natural disaster, people are becoming more aware of the importance of getting back in touch with those survival skills and being on top of any possible catastrophe. Especially after devastating storms like Katrina and Sandy, not being prepared could result in big time losses.

This is one of many stories recently.. So where are all the morons who say they are going to take our guns from us? its happening every day, they are taking them from people..

So YES they are and will take your guns, any type of new laws is just to make it easier for them to find them and take them from people who have bought them without having to register them like here in TX when you buy from another person and not from a gun shop and you are not required to register and put yourself on a strike list.

Good catch! It's just all over anymore. I don't think the force is even for the targeted people on things that extreme. It's silly. How many does it take to kill a man if he actually fights and tries to have a last stand? Not that many....and if they just arrested him out at the corner market or grocery store ...it wouldn't take more than 2 of them and a search warrant back at the 'ol homestead to see what they thought there was to find. (Of course, 2 of them could be held accountable. A whole army is 'unfortunate error' ..oops)

I think this is nothing but overkill to send a message to everyone else. "Here goes you ..should you step too far out of line". I'd say it's a pretty loud and powerful message too.

I hear lots of gun owners are packing significant firearms away in baking soda now?

Hmmm......buy and store before it's too late to buy?

Well that link didn't want to work for me,but it was easily found elsewhere.


It is important to emphasize that the man targeted in this raid was under investigation by undercover police as a result of a neighbor telling cops that he had guns, had made anti-Obama statements, and was a “prepper”. At this point, the cops knew nothing about Porter’s 20-year-old drugs felony.


www.infowars.com...

And here.

www.inquisitr.com...

A 20 year old non violent felon or any non violent felony means a person is banned for life from every owning a gun.

In what world is that right?

Someone makes a mistake and they have to pay for it the rest of their lives?

Be proud for being fascist those who write those asinine laws.

Be a felon means automatically being a mass murder.

That aint right 20 years of keeping his nose clean and 150 gestapo agents come crashing through the front door.

For whaT?

They say that if the ATF has simply waited to arrest David Koresh when he went into a Waco supermarket that all that fire and stuff could've saves lots of children's lives?

Ah, yes....when will we have another Waco?

And, the attack on preppers continues.

Nice find.

Did they really need 150 people to confiscate seven firearms? That's a little excessive, in my opinion.

This reply seems to be used allot at ATS, but I got nothing else to say.

So it begins!

I'm going to say, 'Soon, very soon.'

The goobermint needs to show how dangerous these 'gun nuts' are, how we need to disarm everyone. Anyone that is a prepper, or says anything negative about Obama needs to be reported!

Please don't report me.


That's a scary thought though. Having your neighbor rat you out because, you are doing something as sensible as storing food and supplies? I hope it doesn't come to that.

It isn't funny so much, when you have all of the "Obama Truth Squad" drones on ATS saying, "They aren't going to take your guns!"!

With that being said, it appears they are now using "Wellness checks with police escort people to the hospital!"! Where I live they call it a 302. If the police take you to the emergency room for an evaluation, whether or not you get out clean or not(mentally) you lose what guns you may have, and you can not purchase anymore.....

With that being said, here is another example of how, YES, they are taking our guns!


A US Navy veteran had his guns confiscated by police following a forced “psychiatric evaluation” in another example of how the Veterans Administration is accelerating a purge of armed ex-servicemembers in accordance with a federal government demonization campaign that has labeled vets domestic terrorists.

50-year-old David A Schmecker is an honorably discharged disabled US Navy veteran from Connecticut with no criminal record and no psychiatric history.

On February 5, Schmecker’s hospital primary care doctor called and heard a message on Schmecker’s answer machine that “sounded peculiar,” prompting him to contact the local police and urge them to visit Schmecker to perform a “wellness check”.

“The police came to my home, and, without any justification whatsoever, hauled me away for a psychiatric evaluation at a local hospital. I submitted to their forceful insistence under duress and fear of arrest or worse. I wasn’t arrested, no crime was committed nor any threats were made to myself or others,” Schmecker told Survive and Thrive’s George Hemminger.

“They confiscated my guns and pistol permit. I was released two days later from the evaluation on my on recognizance. I have since attempted to use the courts and attorneys to fight the revocation of my pistol permit. Then on top of everything else, the bills from the short stay at the hospital and EMS bills that they billed me, along with what I had to pay the attorney adds up to a large amount of money,” he adds.

A) He will probably not get them back as they will likely trump up a "felony" charge and if he is successful it will cost a lot more in legal fees than the guns are worth.
B) If he had resisted they would have then been "justified" in not only the raid but also in confiscating his guns and even killing him.

I guess if he had an M-60 like David Koresh at Waco they would have sent in the Army.

All of that for 4 shotguns and 3 rifles? They call that "prepping"?
Hell, if they ever set their sights on my old momma they had better call in the Marines by those standards!

It has already been included in the list of things that make someone a potential domestic terrorist.... by our friends at the Department of Homeland Security, you know.... those people that keep us safe.

Know why they need 150 and not 5, or 10, or just bust him in the streets?

He needs to feel cornered, not this person in specific, but whoever they are busting. They need someone who looks out the window, sees a swat army and thinks "# JUST HIT THE FAN!" , then goes berserk anf fights back, thinking its just gone nationwide or something happened (why else would 150 people in armor be outside your door)

THEN they can say; see? These people are crazy! A couple incidents like that, and the msm continually forgetting to ention the army of cops that caused it, and you'll soon have more than enough people who dont want one of them crazies in their street.

Its a vicious circle that feeds on itself and only gets more effective, more people that are scared by the obvious propaganda, more people that will tip law enforcement about their neighbour acting suspicious since they're learning to survive, bigger odds of actually busting someone who stands their ground.

That list is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen in my life.

Missing fingers can also get a person labelled. Shop teachers all over the country better watch out!

The thing that scares and saddens me the most? At this point there is nothing we can do to stop the monster. I have been in the process of major business plans and I will be taking them offshore ASAP. The USA has lost it's mind and no one seems to be able to organize a large enough "Give a crap" group to fight.

Here in one of the best forums for like minded people we are not allowed to organize anything. Makes ya wonder just how far all this is going don't ya think?

You mean the government might be trying to goad someone into creating exactly what the government needs to show on TV to push even stronger anti-gun legislation through the Congress?

Nah, they'd never do that.

Some people are far too comfortable to organize anything like that.

Others are too busy struggling to keep their heads above water to have time to even think about it.

But, most of them, just aren't paying attention.

If they really go by the list... I'm screwed
of course I was probably screwed the moment I got my honorable discharge along with psychiatrists report saying I had an "adjustment disorder". I just HAD to go and wake up while I was still enlisted
