An Open Letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller

Dear Mr. Mueller,
I understand that recently the FBI joined with the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) in conducting a raid on a
manufacturing business in Montana. Reports indicate that in the course of
questioning, the FBI seemed concerned about the manufacturer's associates,
including myself, Aaron Zelman, and my organization, Jews for the
Preservation of Firearms Ownership, and about Jews and guns in general. The
FBI referred to these as "persons of interest."
While I do not consider yourself to be "of interest" to me, Mr. Mueller, the
FBI is, for two reasons.
First, I would like to draw your attention to
http://www.jpfo.org/doddletter.pdf, which is a photocopy of a 1968
letter from congressional law librarian Lewis C. Coffin to then- Senator
Thomas Dodd. The letter, introduced as evidence (exhibit #62) before the
congressional subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency in 1968,
reveals that Senator Dodd had in his possession a copy -- in German -- of
the original text of the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938 prior to the drafting of
the US 1968 Gun Control Act.
As demonstrated in our book, "Gun Control": Gateway to Tyranny, this is
extremely significant because Senator Dodd assisted in the writing of the
GCA, and the final version of the GCA is eerily similar to the
above-referenced Nazi Weapons Law.
Related, please see
http://www.jpfo.org/declasseddocs.pdf, a June 7, 2006 article entitled,
"Declassified Documents Shed New Light on US Relations with Former Nazi
Criminals". The focus of the article is the eight million pages of documents
recently released which deal with German and Japanese war crimes during
World War II. The documents demonstrate that the US often overlooked or even
protected known Nazi war criminals, merely because said criminals were or
could be of use to the US. States the article, "The price one pays for
consorting with evil men far outweighs the return."
Considering your bureau's apparent preoccupation with Jews and firearms, and
the historical indifference the US paid to Nazi war criminals during and
after WWII, I believe millions of gunowners would be very interested to know
whether you personally are aware of the Nazi origins of "gun control," and
when -- or if -- the FBI has done any investigations into the racism and
bigotry reflected in our current firearms laws. If not, why not?
The second reason for this letter is the Congressional Research Service's
report on the lack of standardized testing procedures and policies in the
BATFE's firearms division (see
http://www.jpfo.org/ATFguntests.pdf ). The BATFE has sent hundreds -- if
not thousands -- of gunowners to prison for "firearms violations" ... yet
the CRS report clearly indicates that the decisions on whether a firearm is
legal or illegal is arbitrary and spurious at best.
Don't believe me? In our DVD entitled BATFE Fails the Test (
http://www.jpfo.org/batfevideo.htm ), you can watch as a self-proclaimed
BATFE firearms "expert" attempts to force a semi-automatic rifle to
rapid-fire (and thus "prove" the rifle is an illegal machine gun).
Fortunately for the BATFE's victim, a real expert demonstrates that the
rifle was malfunctioning, and the case was eventually dismissed.
Not everyone is so lucky, as tests are seldom videotaped and the sentencing
judge is left with the BATFE's word against the accused. Unsurprisingly, the
BATFE's statements are usually given greater credence. (Please contact us if
you would like a copy of the DVD for your research).
Untold numbers of Americans are currently rotting in prison for alleged
violations. Even more live in fear that a single malicious or incompetent
agent can capriciously order an investigation or conduct a raid like the one
in Montana, destroying a person personally and financially. Now that the
truth is out, will the FBI be investigating the BATFE? If you have, what
were the results of your investigation? If not, why not?
Millions of gun owners are waiting to hear from you, Mr. Mueller. Will the
FBI continue to protect an organization known for its brutal "enforcement"
of laws born out of a racist agenda? Or will you pursue justice?
I look forward to your response.
