    FBI Lists Purchase of Preparedness Items as “Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities”

    Oath Keepers Exclusive: An FBI Denver Joint Terrorism Task Force handout being distributed to Colorado military surplus store owners lists the purchase of popular preparedness items and firearms accessories as “suspicious” and “potential indicators of terrorist activities,” instructing store owners to keep records on and report people who:

    “Make bulk purchase of items to include:

    Weatherproofed ammunition or match containers

    Meals Ready to Eat

    Night Vision Devices; night flashlights; gas masks

    High capacity magazines

    Bi-pods or tri-pods for rifles”

    The FBI handout, entitled “Communities Against Terrorism: Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities Related to Military Surplus Stores” also instructs surplus store owners to:

    “Require valid ID from all new customers.

    Keep records of purchases.

    Talk to customers, ask questions, and

    listen to and observe their responses.

    Watch for people and actions that are out of place.

    Make note of suspicious statements, people, and /or vehicles.

    If something seems wrong, notify law enforcement authorities.”

    The handout also instructs surplus store owners to consider as “suspicious” anyone who “demands identity ‘privacy’” or anyone who expresses “extreme religious statements” and those who “make suspicious comments regarding anti-US, [or] radical theology.”

    The “Communities Against Terrorism” flyer closes by stating:

    Preventing terrorism is a community effort. By learning what to look for, you can make a positive contribution in the fight against terrorism. The partnership between the community and law enforcement is essential to the success of anti -terrorism efforts.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Wow.
    Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.

    They're seriously going to start asking for ID when people want to buy camping equipment?

    And what is a "suspicious" vehicle?

    This?



    -or-

    This?

    What distinguishes a "night flashlight" from a regular flashlight?

    Something with a red or blue lens. The funny thing is that you can make one out of red or blue plastic and put it inside of the lens.
