The Idaho III% is closely monitoring a tense situation unfolding on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. Dozens of registered Democrat Representatives have overtaken the chambers by means of occupation, halting the business of the U.S. House, and impeding the natural course of administration of the legislative affairs of the United States of America. The group has apparently undertaken this occupation because they are dissatisfied with the inability of their own organized party to affect sweeping unconstitutional gun-control measures in the wake of a lone-wolf style night club massacre carried out by a deranged individual of Afghani ethnic origin who pledged allegiance to ISIS.
Undoubtedly, these dangerous criminals will likely be indicted in Federal Court for:
- 18 USC 372: Conspiracy to Impede Officer of the United States
The normal day-to-day operation of the U.S. House of Representatives is being impeded.
- 18 USC 1503: Obstruction of the Due Administration of Justice
Congress is unable to adequately legislate during this occupation.
- 18 USC 1951: Interference with Interstate Commerce by Extortion
This occupation intends to deprive law abiding citizens the right to purchase firearms, an industry that relies on interstate commerce.
- 18 USC 1952: Interstate Travel in Aid of Extortion
It is reasonable to conclude that these individuals crossed state lines to participate in this occupation.
In the coming hours the public can expect elements of the Federal Bureau of Investigations to seal off access to the U.S. House of Representatives, establish a several-hundred person large command center at a local airport, and block public access to the facility as these events unfold.
While the Idaho III% does publically stand in opposition to this initiative, the Organization does not condone the lawless use of deadly force should one of the occupiers attempt to leave the chambers. Arming any FBI HRT unit(s) on the scene with paintball guns should sufficiently mitigate any imminent danger of the unlawful use of lethal force by Federal Agents. These criminals can expect an avalanche of litigation, denial of pretrial release, and suppression of the right to a public and speedy trial. The Idaho III% expects that the Representatives involved in this Federal Facility occupation will be taken into custody and experience similar outcomes as those citizens currently incarcerated for their role in The Malheur Refuge Occupation in January of 2016. The inability of the Senate to introduce and pass gun-control legislation cannot be construed as substantive causation for the criminal act undertaken by this group of conspirators.
This initiative constitutes a massive conspiracy to deprive lawful firearms owners of their right to keep and bear arms under the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. While tragic, outcomes like those in Orlando, FL are not indicative of an epidemic of gun violence. Uniform Crime Reports compiled by the FBI shows that from 2009 to 2013, homicides committed with a rifle are on the decline and constitute less than 4% of all homicides by firearms. The CDC puts the number of gun related deaths at around 30K per year, of which 2/3 are suicide. According to the CDC, someone is 3 times more likely to die by any of the following than by homicide with a firearm: motor vehicle accident, accidental poisoning, tripping / falling down.
Despite statistics not supporting the mainstream media’s sensationalized coverage of mass shootings, there is no statistic or combination of occurrences that would warrant the disarming of law abiding citizens.
