Shane Michael Kohfield, a 32-year-old Marine targeted under Oregon’s red flag laws, will not be receiving his confiscated firearms back any time soon, a circuit court judge has determined.
“I do find, by clear and convincing evidence, that you do present a risk of causing physical injury or harm to you or another person in the immediate or near future,” Circuit Judge Katherine Weber said.
Kohfield was robbed of his firearms on Aug. 7 after a Portland area’s FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force initiated an “extreme risk protection order” shortly after he protested outside of Mayor Ted Wheeler’s home. Wheeler has gained national infamy after allowing ANTIFA domestic terrorists to run the streets of Portland during many protests throughout the summer.
The order was issued to protect ANTIFA terrorists after Kohfield made it clear that he would not hesitate to defend himself against the group if they targeted him and his fellow conservatives. He gave the speech while wearing a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap while showing his concealed weapons permit.
Kohfield apparently got on the FBI’s radar after being ratted out by Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), one of the biggest proponents of red flag laws in Congress. He had sent a letter to Crenshaw alerting him of the ANTIFA threat, and Crenshaw’s office showed the letter to the FBI so the former Marine could be profiled and eventually have his firearms seized.
The feds defend their decision to revoke this veteran’s gun rights, as they claim his extremist rhetoric against ANTIFA revokes his freedom under 2nd Amendment.
“He’s not talking about self-defense.” FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force member Jeremy Stinson said. “He’s talking about slaughter, he’s talking about murder, he’s talking about going out and finding people in their homes and killing them.”
Big League Politics reported in August about how Kohfield was victimized by Oregon’s red flag laws:
A Trump supporter in Oregon was stripped of his firearms under the state’s red flag laws for declaring that his rights wouldn’t be trampled upon by ANTIFA terrorists who have rampaged throughout Portland during the summer.
“If ANTIFA gets to the point where they start killing us, I’m going to kill them next,” said Shane Kohfield, a 32-year-old former Marine. “I’d slaughter them and I have a detailed plan on how I would wipe out ANTIFA.”
This statement triggered the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task to revoke Kohfield’s 2nd Amendment rights and take his firearms away. In addition, they forced the former marine to spend 20 days in a veterans’ hospital as well.
Law enforcement admits that Kohfield never committed any criminal actions or charged with any crimes, but that didn’t prevent his rights from being stripped from him anyway.
The feds, who refuse to prosecute deep state cretins like James Comey but devote excessive resources to profiling and demonizing gun owners, are patting themselves on the back for targeting this veteran with pre-crime measures.
“Clearly, this latest incident shows how effective proactive policing can be in reducing the chance of violence,” retired FBI agent Michael German said. “It also makes you wonder if they’d been proactive from beginning whether all of this would have grown into the menace it has become.”
“The Portland JTTF’s role is to assess, address, and mitigate any given threat against the people of Oregon appropriately,” wrote Beth Anne Steele, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Portland office in an email.
“Sometimes that mitigation takes the form of criminal prosecution, and sometimes it involves a holistic response, including consultation with threat assessment teams or others to divert a person before a significant violent crime occurs,” Steele added.
Kohfield, who fought two tours of duty in Iraq and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of serving his country, felt he was responding to a domestic threat posed by ANTIFA that is being aided and abetted by Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler. He participated in a protest outside of Wheeler’s house in July.
“I was watching on the news that city of Portland did nothing to protect the people against ANTIFA,” Kohfield said. “I figured I’d show up to protect these people.”
Despite the setback, Kohfield vows to keep fighting for his rights.
“This is still a win to me,” Kohfield said. “Everything I did was to protect my country. And to avoid violence.”
However, he may never be able to get his firearm rights back legally. The protection order filed against him can last for a year, but then be extended indefinitely. The man who put his life on the line to protect the Constitution has been betrayed by the State.
In Republican-Controlled Wyoming, A Gun Rights Group is Now being Forced to Reveal its Donors
Violation of privacy.
The Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office is cracking down on a pro-Second Amendment organization by forcing it to reveal its donors. This move was spurred by a campaign that Wyoming Gun Owners launched last summer in which it attacked a number of incumbent elected officials in races across the state.
In a letter that the office published on October 14, 2020 Wyoming Gun Owners allegedly did follow the state’s campaign finance law.
The organization pulled off a number victories by unseating incumbent lawmakers last summer and has released advertisement targeting various candidates in the elections on November 3, which includes Riverton Republican Ember Oakley and Democrat Britney Wallesch.
The pro-Second Amendment organization has been around Wyoming politics for some time and publicly disclosed that it is paying for advertisements. However, its lack of registry with the state as either a lobbying organization or a political action committee runs afoul of state guidelines.
“The Secretary of State’s Office has reviewed the advertisements paid for by WYGO and determined that they are clearly electioneering communications,” the letter stated. “As such, WYGO failed to comply with the requirements set forth in Wyo. Stat. § 22-25-106(h).”
It wasn’t until a few months ago that the group’s activities have not been reported within the state government. The Wyoming government cannot initiate the investigation on electioneering activity allegations unless someone files a formal complaint.
An initial complaint was first reported by the Riverton Ranger newspaper earlier this month. It did not gather any further steam because it was lacking in evidence to support the allegations. Subsequently, a second complaint with proper documentation was filed with the state not too long after, which prompted the Secretary of State to take action.
Wyoming Gun Owners now has until November 4 to disclose the names of its donors or be slapped with a $500 fine.
If the group refuses to follow the state’s order, the case will then be kicked to the Wyoming Attorney General, according to secretary of state spokesperson Monique Meese.
“Then we take their advice about what to do going forward,” she stated.
State Senator Anthony Bouchard founded Wyoming Gun Owners almost a decade ago. Nowadays, it is run by various members of the Dorr Family, who operate a network of pro-gun organizations pushing for pro-Second Amendment policies.
Aaron Dorr, Wyoming Gun Owners’ executive director, has had public disputes with elected officials such as Senate Vice President Ogden Driskill, who has repeatedly criticized the organization’s tactics during the 2020 election cycle.
The pro-gun organization bolstered its reputation by killing a firearm reporting bill in 2019 sponsored by former Campbell County Sheriff and current State Representative Bill Pownall. Wyoming Gun Owners ran ads supporting Bill Fortner, Pownall’s opponent. Throughout these ad blasts, Pownall was depicted as anti-gun. Fortner ended up winning in a landslide.
Such a case shows how even Republican governments will go out of their way to prop up incumbents and infringe on the privacy rights of organizations that wish to restore freedoms such as the Second Amendment. Just because politicians have an “R”s beside their name does not guarantee that they will protect individuals’ rights.
