Quote of the Day

"I do pack, and I will not blink when I'm confronted. ... It's not a threat, it's a guarantee."

Charles Alan Wilson, 63, in a telephone conversation with and initiated by a government agent seeking to entrap him for supposedly threatening Senator Patty "Bonehead" Murray, D-People's Republic of Washington, over her support for Obamacare.

Read the Newsmax article, "Man Charged with Threatening Senator Murray." Nothing I read in the article constitutes a crime. Many Washington residents share Mr. Wilson's feelings.

Note that the article mentions, "Wilson has a .38-caliber revolver registered to him and has a concealed weapons permit, Woodbury wrote." Woodbury is one of the FBI agents. The mention of Mr. Wilson's revolver is very interesting, as Washington's concealed carry permits are not specific to any weapon nor is there any procedure to register a weapon to a permit. Nothing suggests that Mr. Wilson attempted to use his revolver in any crime, so I wonder if TPTB are violating the Tiahrt amendment, which prohibits accessing gun trace data except for weapons used in a crime.

Of course, this is all occurring in the same state where uncooperative drunk drivers are summarily executed by the police. Read that here.
