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

“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”
----------------------------------

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 fact is that while not all people who prep are anti government nut cases or terrorists, some anti-government nut cases/terrorists are preppers or survivalists. Let's face it, military surplus does have some utility if one is going to mount an assault or terrorist, anti government attack. I think it prudent for the feds to ask for help should a military surplus store owner run across someone exhibiting strange behavior. If you read the flier it is does make a distinction between someones normal beliefs and patterns of behavior.

And people like you are the reason we are losing more and more of our rights every day. Hey bad people use guns too so lets make a federal gun regestration law. I am sure ATF will make a distinction between "normal" beliefs and patterns of behavior. They would never do anything wrong like giving guns to known criminals right?

The dumbing down is still working on some people. People doing something perfectly legal and your neighbor should call the local police and report you. Who here wants to wear a brown shirt?

And since 99.999% of people who prep DO NOT engage in terrorist activities --> they should be left alone.

By YOUR logic, since 100% of domestic terrorists in the past 20 years have been Islamic --> ALL islamist activity should be strictly monitored and reported to the police. Right? You are just going by FACTS and not emotions,right?

and some terrorists are white, some are black, some are middle eastern. some are christians, mormons, muslims, athiests. some are carnivores, and some are vegans.

according to your logic we should create a system were everyone is guilty all the time and we can then just arrest the bad people as soon as we find out they are bad for whatever reason. i basically called you a fascist.
