FBI Harassing Gun Shops to be on the Lookout for “People Talking About Big Government”

The government downplays Islamic terrorism and exaggerates the threat of domestic terrorism involving white, “anti-government” activists. If you’re critical of our government in any way, that makes the government suspicious of you. You’re a potential terrorist if you’re pro-life, opposed to high taxes, critical of a fractional-reserve banking system, or hold the U.S. Constitution in high regard. Any of those things will raise red flags and put you on some government list.

A gun shop owner in South Carolina reported that FBI agents were making the rounds at his and others’ gun shops asking the business owners to keep on the lockout for customers’ “suspicious behavior.” Infowars reported:

Author Brandon Turbeville says he was approached by an individual who works in a Columbia, South Carolina gun shop to relate the story of how an FBI agent entered the store on Monday, showed his credentials, before proceeding to ask a series of stunning questions.

Telling the gun store worker he was tasked with visiting all the firearms outlets in the local area to check on “suspicious purchases” for counterterrorism purposes, the agent then began discussing what in actual fact were completely normal transactions, such as, “paying with cash, purchasing long guns, and other similarly innocuous behavior.”

The FBI agent then reportedly made a shocking remark that almost seems too chilling to believe.

“If you see some Middle Eastern guy come in, you don’t have to be so worried about that. What we’re really looking for are people talking about being sovereign such as sovereign citizens or people talking about big government,” the agent reportedly stated.

Before the agent left the store, he handed the employee a flyer, which lists paying with cash, buying in bulk, along with other seemingly innocuous behavior as suspicious activity.

The group with the most obvious history of terrorism is considered benign nowadays by “counterterrorism” forces, but people in favor of a Constitutional government are seen as the real threats to national security.
