The video above is from way back in 2009, before Schaeffer started getting into legal trouble and well before the Feds started building their case against him. A time back when, for reasons that are not clear to me, he was considered a respected political leader and was able to attract the attention, and support, of Alaska's lone Congressman.
Here is a portion of a Q and A with Congressman Young at that Denny's restaurant in Fairbanks which starts at the 58 second mark:
Unidentified man: "If any government should decide that we have to register certain of our arms or turn them in, what would you say?"
Congressman Young: "Don't do it. I sincerely mean that. Don't turn them in!"
Later in the video Alaska's sole Congressman is shown signing the document presented that day by now convicted domestic terrorist Schaeffer Cox, which read as follows:
"Let it be known that we, the people of Alaska, stand in recognition of the true principal that whenever a government abandons the principle for which we have created it and even becomes hostile toward that which it was a defender of, it is no longer a fit steward of the political power that is inherent in the people and lent to this government with strict conditions. These conditions are clearly defined in the United States Constitution and understood by the common man. Furthermore, to the extent that our government violates these conditions, they nullify their own authority, at which point it is our right and duty, not as subjects but as sovereign Americans, to entrust this power to new stewards who will not depart from the laws we have given them."
"This being the case, let it be known that should our government seek to further tax, restrict or register firearms or otherwise impose on the right that shall not be infringed, thus impairing our ability to exercise our God-given right to self defense which precedes all all human legislation and is superior to it, that the duty of us good and faithful people will be to not obey but to alter and abolish them and institute new government laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to us shall seem most likely to effect our safety and happiness."
Clearly this is a poorly written call for the overthrow of the federal government if ever they attempt to implement new gun laws requiring a tax, registration, or restriction of any American's firearms. (Which of course is EXACTLY what is about to happen.)
And at the 2:50 mark you can clearly see Don Young signing it.
This of course begs the question, with these new gun restrictions clearly coming down the pike, exactly WHEN will Don Young alert his constituents that it is time to take up arms and overthrow the government?
And of course the follow up question would be, WHY do we Alaskans have as our representative somebody who "pals around" with domestic terrorists and pledges to them that he will join them in a gun fight against the federal government in response to legislation designed to protect our children from violence or death?
(P.S. If the video above looks familiar to you, it is probably because I posted it way back in March of 2011. Believe it or not I was reminded about it the other day by somebody working with the FBI. So yeah, they are paying attention.)
