"Prison-Proof" Yourself Now, While You Still Can!

Copyright 2008 JPFO.ORG.


Do you shoot at a public range?

Can your neighbors and others hear you shooting?

If so, then you must read this alert and take action today!

By now you will have heard about David Olofson, who loaned his semiautomatic AR15 rifle to an unsavory character working with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, a runaway rogue agency the very existence of which is a violation of the Constitution.

The BATFE claimed the rifle was "an unregistered machine gun" -- after they engineered it to fire fully automatically, using their choice of specially-selected ammunition, not the owner's. Now Olofson is sitting in a prison cell because these government subsidized criminals were free to use their own specialized "justice system" to "make an example" of one innocent gun owner in order to terrorize many more.

Now they're claiming that any gun that is worn or broken and will fire more than one cartridge with a single pull of the trigger -- even a damaged side-by-side or over-under shotgun -- constitutes a "machinegun".

Those of you who have viewed JPFO's video presentation, BATFE Fails the Test already know the dirty tricks and outright lies that the agency routinely uses to make a conviction. John Glover, another innocent gun owner, was fortunate to have a brilliant attorney who demanded the BATFE's "testing" of his client's firearm be videotaped. The result was a thoroughly embarrassing documentary of the BATFE's dishonesty and incompetence. After it was viewed by a federal prosecutor, the case against Glover never went to trial; the BATFE lost.

Olofson, on the other hand, had only a federal public defender to rely on, not knowledgeable counsel who insisted on a visual recording of the defendant's rifle operating before the BATFE could reengineer it. The Liberty Crew at JPFO do not want their friends to go to prison, so they've done a little engineering of their own, creating a plan you can follow to help prevent the BATFE from making you its next victim.

Here is what you need to do -- at minimum -- today!

Purchase, borrow, or rent a video camera and make a recording of the operation of each weapon you own that might be reengineered to fire more than once with a single pull of the trigger. You probably don't need to worry about single-shot shotguns, rifles, or pistols. Slide-action or bolt-action rifles and shotguns are probably okay, as well.

Start by calling out the date, time, place of the test.

Call out serial number, model, and manufacturer, and show the weapon to camera.

Show the labels of any ammunition you use; call out the maker's name.

Then demonstrate the weapon firing.

Demonstrate its operation at every possible setting of the safety selector, marked or otherwise. If you only have "safe" or "fire", show that the weapon will not go to any "unmarked position". CETMEs, H&Ks, FN-FALs, or others may have a marked "A" position. Demonstrate that it allows nothing more than a single shot fired for each pull of the trigger.

Never forget that the BATFE is claiming that any gun -- even your great-granddad's ancient double-barrelled Damascus shotgun -- that will fire twice or more with a single trigger-pull is a "machinegun".

After videotaping the test, make copies for trusted friends and family members, give one to your attorney, mail a copy to yourself. Do not open the envelope, but keep it in a very secure space outside your home.

Yes, whatever ammunition you use testing your firearm for the video camera will cost you money, but it's cheaper than having to sell your gun collection, or remortgaging your house, to pay legal bills, and it could stop a federal prosecutor -- or the BATFE -- in its tracks.

If, on the other hand, this whole routine -- or the necessity for it -- strikes you as silly or insane, there's something else you can do.

Join JPFO today. See for details.

Learn more about the BATFE by watching the JPFO video The Gang, available at, a presentation that exposes the criminality and brutality of this dangerous runaway rogue agency.

Go to and hear firearms expert Len Savage on JPFO's "Talkin to America", discuss how David Olofson was framed and how this endangers every American gun owner.

Best of all, help the Liberty Crew end this sorry state of affairs once and for all by abolishing the BATFE, and by repealing, nullifying or otherwise disposing of each and every gun law, federal, state, or local, that infringes upon the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
