    Nalioth: I suggest that you get all of your facts from someone other than the government or the main media. The newest facts to come out of the trail do not in fact bear out your contention. I would suggest that you read information provided by either glen beck or lou dobbs , both of whom have studied the whole transcripts. And if those fail you, then perhaps the pages of the NRA or the GOA might suffice to show you what is really going on. It is also of interest that he was given an honorable discharge from the army , whom the prosecution has contended he was given a letter of reprimand for gun charges; something that the army disputes. Of course the government can call a you a terrorist because you like guns and that by its very nature makes you a law breaker.

    Guess I'll stop believing anything I read.

    You tease the alligator, one day you'll lose a hand (or worse).
    There is probably some misinformation out on this case.
    The NRA has decided to join the appeals process.
    This tells me he has a case.

    I *STILL* don't know the real story - too much hearsay about "teenager doing this" or "gun running fine for hundreds of rounds then BAM" so I don't know what to think. If a jury was able to convict him, then it sure is a bad defense if he is actually "in the clear"... if not then I dunno. I just don't know about this one so I can't call it. We need a "just the facts" overview, with sources.

    Since the NRA is joining the case, I would guess that there is some merrit to the claims by the defendent.
    Show your outrage by telling your reps in congress to look into the excesses.

    He owned a manual on AR-15s. The gov't said it was a "conversion manual". Even if that's true, owning a book is legal (1st Amendment).

    He was charged with being an unlicensed manufacturer because he helped people assemble legal semiauto rifles on receivers they legally purchased from ffls, with parts they legally purchased from him.
    Those charges were dismissed, sice none of that activity is unlawful.

    How many of you remember the Centenial park bombing at the Atlanta Olympics and the security guard named Richard Jewell? The FBI said he had books on bomb making and fit the profile of a bomber. The news media circus that followed him around for 4 months ruined his life. I remember seeing an interview with him years after he was cleared. He still couldn't get a job even though he had a letter from the FBI clearing him of any wrong doing. He was bankrupt on account of the legal fees and no income. The "BOOK" he had was on recognizing bombs and what steps should be taken to clear the area. If anything he should be given an award for being alert enough in the first place to notice that the duffle bag looked suspicious and getting the process started on evacuating people from the area. But what did he get instead? The shaft. Olofson is in the same situation in my opinion. Even if he is eventually cleared is he going to get his good name back? Isn't every potential employer going to think of this incident as a black mark on his background? Who is going go reimburse Olofson for his legal fees and loss of income from this incident? No one, if he is cleared he still gets the shaft
