Feds trying for a Bill of Rights twofer

War on Guns has a story to tell. It's a story about a corrupt federal bureaucracy so drunk on arrogance as to think itself above the Constitution.

David Codrea, as any reader knows, has been keeping track of the BATFE's war on Red's Trading Post, which is now being actively waged in court.

The latest development (in the first link) is that U.S. Marshal David A. Meyer told Mr. Horsley to warn David about the potential that he could face prosecution under the Court Security Improvement Act of 2007.

That said, OK, I recognize bait when I see it. I'll bite. Here is my considered response. Now that you've snagged me, hang on tight.

First off, if you have anything to say to me, say it directly. Don't go presuming sovereign citizens are your personal messenger boys.

Second, how dare you?

Don't presume to have authority to impose any prior restraint on what I write. Don't presume to warn me about what you will or will not allow me to say.
I don't think Mr. Codrea is impressed.

David A. Meyer (dave.meyer@usdoj.gov) apparently doesn't like us using the First Amendment to protect the Second. I would think he'd be better off to worry that we might do it the other way around.
