David Codrea:Vanderboegh defies anti-gun governors with ‘Toys for Totalitarians’

Mike Vanderboegh defies the tyrants.

Adding a Christmas component to his continued defiance of anti-gun edicts by smuggling standard capacity ammunition magazines into states that ban them, citizen journalist, blogger and right to keep and bear arms activist Mike Vanderboegh is daring ban enforcers by sending such magazines to select governors, an update posted Tuesday on the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog reports.

“[T] he smart money is betting someone evil-minded is going to take official notice of this little bit of defiance,” Vanderboegh speculates. “That could get dicey.”

Longtime readers of this column recall Vanderboegh is the citizen journalist who first reported on allegations from CleanUpATF -- a website maintained by so-called “dissident” agents to expose bureau waste, abuse, corruption and fraud -- that “walked” weapons from the Fast and Furious operation were found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. His groundbreaking work on validating related reports and securing insider sources, pressuring Congress into providing whistleblower protection and conducting formal hearings, and guiding a mostly indifferent or hostile “mainstream media” into independently investigating and then reporting on the story, has been exhaustively documented in a series of Gun Rights Examiner reports beginning with the first of several guides.

“There is much concern among readers about my potential arrest,” Vanderboegh relates about his latest civil disobedience campaign. "’Have you checked whether this is legal?’ is a common question in my emails and phone calls.

“Let's understand one thing,” he continues. “[T]he law, these tyrants have decided, no longer applies to them. As evidenced by Fast and Furious, Benghazi and other scandals we are in the Age of Catch 22 -- they can and will do anything we can't stop them from doing.
