Well, Mr. Pat, things are not coming up roses for those of us who know how to use a weapon. The Homeland Security Agency has contacted all local law enforcement agencies nationwide to stop and search vehicles with any patriotic bumper stickers and any other patriotic items like American flags and American flag bumper stickers. Many police departments have been told to confiscate any weapons upon these "random" traffic stops. Now, once the police determine that there are no outstanding warrants on you and that you have no other cause to hold you after 20-30 minutes of being detained that they are supposed to return your weapons. However, Shreveport Louisiana's mayor tells his policemen to bring the weapons back with them to the station.

By what authority do they have to search the vehicle? HSA wins only because people are gullible enough to let them do the search. DEMAND a search warrant. If they cannot produce one, they are detaining you unlawfully. So demand cause for their detaining you.

The SPLC and ADL are behind a lot of this "intelligence" that they freely supply to gullible police departments and politicians.
Patriots are considered to be the "enemy" to these two organizations . . .

They must not be getting much cooperation. I have patriotic stickers on several of my vehicles and have not been stopped once. I have never heard of any of my friends or relatives, who also sport patriotic symbols on their cars, being stopped and searched for that reason alone. This may happen in some of less "free" states, but it's not happening in mine, and the state I'm a resident of is not known to be very conservative. I would hope the local law enforcement agencies in most of the US had a good laugh at that request. I'm not saying is hasn't happened in some areas. I'm hoping it's an exception rather than a rule. Still, what has the ACLU had to say about it. They could prove they're worth something by fighting such rubbish.

With the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch volunteer who was legally carrying a 9-millimeter handgun, the familiar wail has arisen from our cultural and media elite:

America has too many guns!

“Open carry” and “concealed carry” laws should be repealed.

Florida’s “Stand-your-ground” law, replicated in two dozen states, threatens to turn America into the Tombstone of Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp. This is insane!

The United Nations agrees. This year, the world body takes up the global control of firearms, including small arms in the hands of citizens.

According to Sen. Rand Paul, the U.N. “Small Arms...
