The Man Behind The Wire

Vanderboegh and Codrea cover the bad news: The Supremes on Tuesday denied David Olofson's Petition for a Writ of Certiorari.

Thus, for all practical purposes, endeth his legal battles.

What remain are the practical battles for survival: David in Federal prison, and his family (above) on the outside trying to hold home and hearts together.

As you listen to the classic Irish resistance song that follows, please consider sending what you can, as often as you can, to David's Relief Fund, which is administered by Larry Pratt and GOA:

David Olofson has been subjected to a gross miscarriage of justice. What happened to Olofson could happen to any American who owns a semi-automatic firearm.

He was convicted of knowingly transferring an unregistered machine gun -- a standard semi-auto rifle which fired two three-round bursts and then jammed. Gun owners call that a malfunction. The federal government calls it an easy way to get a felony conviction. Olofson was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison.

David Olofson is an information technology professional with a wife, three children and a mortgage. Until his conviction, he was also in the National Guard.

The Olofson Relief Fund has been set up to allow concerned Americans to help the Olfoson’s make their mortgage and (their one) car payments while Dave is unable to work.

If you decide to a monthly contribution to the Olofson Relief Fund, your credit card will be charged monthly for the amount you have indicated. This will continue until Olofson is out of prison -- or you notify us to discontinue the charges. You may also choose to make a one time donation.

Gun Owners of America is acting as the agent for the fund. All moneys collected will be transferred regularly to the mortgage and car loan holders. These contributions are not tax-deductible.


Look again at that picture of the Olofson family, read this update from David's parents (written prior to the Supremes' decision), and consider the message from the Wolfe Tones:



He is not the first.

Nor will he be the last.

Keep faith with David and his family.

Lyrics to 'The Gauntlet':

Well I just got back from a break in the fight
I was weighing in heavy but still feeling alright
all I hear in the distance - mines and shells
here come the sirens wailing another attack to be repelled

Do you think we're gonna make it?
I don't know unless we try
you could sit here scared to move
or we could take them by surprise
it's submission that they want
it's surrender that they need
when we're doing it their way
their aims will be achieved

They're gonna come when you're not ready
when you're not too well-prepared
they're gonna prey upon your weakness
no man's soul is ever spared
you've got to stand up, yeah, and fight them
show them what it's all about
this man is not for sale
there will be no backing down.

[Chorus:]
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you
We shall succeed,
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you

They won't get me, they won't get me
though they never cease to try
they won't get me, they won't get me
I would rather fight and die
they won't get me, they won't get me
well my friend will they get you?
when they get you, when they get you
tell me what you're gonna do?

Do you think we're gonna make it?
I don't know unless we try
you could sit here scared to move
or we could take them by surprise
it's submission that they want
it's surrender that they need
when we're doing it their way
their aims will be achieved.

They're gonna come when you're not ready
when you're not too well-prepared
they're gonna prey upon your weakness
no man's soul is ever spared
you've got to stand up, yeah, and fight them
show them what it's all about
this man is not for sale
there will be no backing down.

[Chorus: x2]
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you
We shall succeed
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you

The Gauntlet is a good candidate for the Threeper theme song.

Why would I want to donate money to enable Fudds to keep their heads in the sand?

Yes, Olofson is innocent of the intent to manufacture a machine gun. Yes, he could be any of us. But now that the court case is over, the family should be denouncing the system that kidnapped him. Declaring that it no longer has their consent. Promising to never vote again. Explaining he was mislead into working for a decade and a half in the State's standing army, expanding the State's power. This whole family seems to want to continue to regard the State as the good guys -- and I don't want to help enable their addiction to illegitimate power over others.

GOA calls it a "gross miscarriage of justice". As if the conviction and punishment of someone who did intend to manufacture a machine gun would be justice? All you small-r Republicans are on the wrong side.
