I appreciate, and accept with great gratitude, your support and every prayer you have for my family and I. I knew that by choosing to accept the moral obligation our Creator instructed us to that the path would be long and arduous. But I see no other options, as any capitulation with the evil we have allowed to exist around us is out of the question for me.

While I can handle any kind and amount of punishment they give me knowing of my innocence, I am greatly pained by the suffering they have brought to my family. Despite that, you will find that I am more resolute in my stand now than I was before. The lies, the fabricated evidence, and threats and paid-off witnesses have not shaken me. There is but one path we can follow -- that of the truth.

I have no doubt that this will be resolved. How long it takes is yet to be determined. The victory in this will not be mine, but one of and for all freedom-loving Americans.

But it can not stop there. I am not the first, and I will not be the last innocent they go after with ulterior motives. Even as I write this they have stepped up their attacks on Len Savage in an attempt to put him out of business and quell any further testimony from him. I also have no doubt that they are waiting to see if they can get this as a precedent to use on any gun owner who merely crosses paths with any government agent at any level.

This is something I can not allow. I will continue to put myself in harm’s way however futile the effort may be, in an attempt to keep such a perverse and planned miscarriage of justice from befalling any other person. When facing this much evil it can not be done alone, and will require the help of many. I can only hope that many others can follow my lead. If not, then our Republic is lost.

All my best to you, and thanks again,

David R. Olofson
