I'm all for Constitutional rights but that kind of maneuver was uncalled for. Not smart.

Detained and held for questioning, released with no arrest or charges.

Bosworth said he was questioned by the FBI, but was not charged with anything.

That's too bad. He probably had plans to take his rifle to the police station and airport that afternoon. He couldn't do that once they stole his rifle and tossed him in a cell.

More on Anthony Bosworth...
Quote:
Feds Attempt to Derail Liberty Movement in WA State, Interrogate Liberty Activist
Quote:
Yesterday we reported on the arrest (and later release) of liberty activist Anthony Bosworth, an Iraq War vet and one of the co-leaders of Liberty For All. You may have seen the InfoWars story on his questioning by the FBI. What you don’t know is that it was far worse than even they reported...

Carry Issues

As Infowars also reported, the US Marshal who arrested him told him later that it would be a good idea for him to “disappear for a while,” and just “let things go” for about a year, and if he shut up, got out of the activism business, and stopped all this liberty nonsense, perhaps he could avoid federal charges and jail time. Just some “friendly advice,” you know, from your “friendly” federal agent.

It’s been reported that the Spokane County Sheriff was called and Bosworth was released on the basis of the sheriff’s intervention. What you may not know is that the sheriff was told by certain parties, in no uncertain terms, that if he did not go to the federal building and get Bosworth released, that a large number of armed patriots were available to do it for him. The sheriff dutifully marched into the building and did his job, and Bosworth did end up being released—although he’s still waiting for his firearms to be returned.

The feds took one last run at Bosworth before he left. An agent, using a different name than previously given, asked for future private meetings with him, so Bosworth could explain the Second Amendment to him. The agent claimed he didn’t know much about it, and while he “really supported” what Anthony stood for, he just didn’t know enough and would really like to have some future meetings with Bosworth. Apparently that tactic has already worked at least once. It didn’t this time.
A little further down is this.
Quote:
Anthony Bosworth was given a citation for “failure to comply”; with what, exactly, is unknown. It was determined that he was not actually breaking the law by standing in the courtyard outside. He will fight the citation.

The rest of us here in Washington State will continue to stand. We understand the risks, we understand that the federal government sees us as a threat. We are a threat to their control, to their agenda, to their theft of our liberties. But, as our dear friend and fellow patriot Mike Vanderboegh points out: if they don’t start nuthin’, won’t be nuthin’.

If they do decide they want to start something, there’s always the 100 Heads Life and Casualty Company.

I liked the quote from former communist agitator and domestic terrorist Mike Vanderbough.

Adds some "gravitas" to the story.:rolleyes:

Exclusive: Fbi tries to flip open carry activist after arrest...

Here is the infowars piece mentioned in my post.
Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: FBI TRIES TO FLIP OPEN CARRY ACTIVIST AFTER ARREST AT POLITICAL RALLY
Quote:
An open carry activist and military veteran speaking exclusively with Infowars says federal agents told him to “be quiet” for a year or face federal charges after being arrested by Department of Homeland Security agents at a political rally in Spokane, Washington.

The activist, Anthony Bosworth, was participating in the “Our State, Our Rights” rally near the city’s federal courthouse when members of multiple federal agencies approached and began demanding identification.

While inquiring on the alleged need to provide ID, Bosworth was accused of being in violation of federal gun laws according to a DHS agent on scene.

“It’s against federal law,” the agent claimed. “18 U.S. C 930 says it’s illegal.”

Bosworth, correctly citing the law’s wordage, asserted that the restriction only applied to the inside of federal buildings.

“On federal property,” the DHS agent argued. “You’re on federal property.”

18 U.S. Code 930 in fact never once uses the words “on federal property,” but instead repeatedly refers to the possession of a firearm inside a federally-run building.
There is more in the article.

Typical jackass. He tries to create a confrontation where none exists and he does it in such a way that he looks like the bad guy/idiot to everybody except himself. Having the kids carry guns along with him was a nice touch.

I'm sure that the huge majority of Americans who are not active on either side of gun rights will really be impressed by how great gun owners are and they'll want to support him.

He may win in court, but he still does more harm than good to gun rights, because he can't present his protest in an intelligent way.

When that failed to produce results, he and his red buddies vandalized and destroyed military equipment at National Guard and reserve facilities in support of Uncle Ho.

Now he just agitates for violence against the government wrapped in a different flag.

I think he's just an emotionally screwed up POS who was mostly looking to reap the sick enjoyment such aholes get by making other people feel that their lives are being threatened.

He accomplished it too. I hope the emotional rush was worth it to him because it was completely counter productive for the rest of us. And I think he knew that too - which pretty much proves his motives are not what he says they are.

His kids need a better daddy.
