The FBI Secretly Forced Americans to Hand Over This Constitutional Right

It seems the FBI will stop at nothing to target law abiding Americans.

They’ve gone completely off the rails as they’ve been corrupted and politicized.

And the FBI even secretly forced Americans to hand over this Constitutional right.

There is no longer any doubt the FBI and the entire Department of Justice have been corrupted to the core.

The unprecedented raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence is just the latest example.

In fact, ever since the Obama years, the FBI has been working to strip Americans of their freedoms and destroy the Constitution.

And they are using every dirty trick in the book to achieve their nefarious goal.

Recently the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained a treasure of internal documents and communications showing the FBI secretly pressured Americans into signing forms that relinquish their rights to own, purchase or even use firearms.

These forms were presented by the FBI to law abiding American citizens at their homes and in other undisclosed locations, according to bureau documents unearthed through the Freedom of Information Act by the firearm rights group Gun Owners of America (GOA).

Between 2016 and 2019 Americans unknowingly signed the secret forms, which ask signatories to declare themselves either a “danger” to themselves or others or lacking “mental capacity adequately to contract or manage” their lives.

Legal experts who specialize in the Second Amendment say the very existence of the forms raise serious legal questions and concerns.

“We’re into a pre-crime, Minority Report type of world where the FBI believes it can take constitutional rights away from anyone it thinks possibly might pose a threat in the future. Which certainly is not something you expect in the United States,” said Robert Olson, a GOA lawyer who specializes in firearms law.

The FBI’s form specifies that signers will be permanently registered with the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

But even worse, the form states this would legally bar signatories from being able to “purchase, to possess and to use any firearm.”

And to make matters worse, it is unclear what criteria the FBI used to identify possible signers, meaning it is very likely many of them had no reason at all to be approached.

The FBI claims some were approached to sign the form after allegedly making violent threats in online chat rooms, in person and on social media platforms.

The existence of the FBI form was actually first revealed in 2019 by the gun blog Ammoland, but there was no evidence at the time the FBI was using the forms.

But then, as part of its January 2020 lawsuit against the once proud FBI, GOA obtained the signed forms and released them to the public.

A spokesperson for the FBI told the Daily Caller News Foundation the form was “discontinued” in December 2019 but refused to say why that decision was made.

And of course, the FBI has become infamous for lying and covering its tracks so there is no reason to believe this is the case.

While the very existence of the form raises many legal and constitutional questions, the FBI’s method of securing signatures is downright Orwellian.

In order to get signatures, FBI agents “interviewed” people at their homes, businesses and elsewhere.

Signing the form is supposed to be done “voluntarily,” but these “interviews” clearly gave many a sense of undue pressure and provided a clear warning; “Sign this or we will be back.”

“The FBI presented this to people,” said Reed Martz an attorney who runs a 2nd Amendment blog. “That is terrifying to me. Think about that. The whole thing is chilling.”

Chilling indeed. The FBI really is out of control. It’s time Congress took this seriously and defunded the FBI in order to protect the Constitution and the rights of all Americans.
