Red's Trading Post to Show The Gang

In conjunction with Red's Trading Post, JPFO will be premiering our newest documentary _The Gang_ in Red's home town of Twin Falls, Idaho. A movie many don't want you to see, _The Gang_ exposes the abuses of the BATFE, from entrapment to racial discrimination to institutional perjury.

This will be shown FREE OF CHARGE and Red's Trading Post will also be raffling off a Ruger 10/22 Rifle and other prizes to those who attend. Members of the press are expected to attend the showing as well.

Lamphouse Theater
223 5th Ave South
When: June 13th and 14th at 7pm

We've been keeping our readers abreast of the trials Red's has suffered under the BATFE. Targeted by the agency who exaggerated minor paperwork errors while hiding other relevant information in an effort to shut down the business, Red's recently won an injunction to keep their business running ( ). After telling his story on our "Talkin' to America" program ( ), owner Ryan Horsley was audited the next day by ATF agents, including an area supervisor. Said the agents, "We'll do this again and again and again..." ( )

Yes, the BATFE is impressed with itself, no doubt. Take a peek at this Amended Declaration ( ). Part of the suit Red's filed in an effort to save the business, this declaration is the sworn statement of BATFE agent Richard Van Loan. In Section 7, he references the phrase "...when justice so requires." This isn't the first time Agent Van Loan has said that. In fact, according to Horsley, Agent Van Loan has stipulated several times that he has ultimate authority "when justice so requires".

Justice ... or revenge?

Ryan's still fighting back. In addition to the coverage JPFO has provided on this outrageous case, Red's has taken out ads in both radio and print to publicize their plight, and numerous articles are being written in their local papers. Red's will also begin blogging their experiences at , and Ryan has been invited to appear on the area's biggest talk show. Writer David Codrea even mentioned the case in his "War on Guns" blog ( or )

If you can make it, please support Red's Trading Post and JPFO by attending this showing of _The Gang_. We must abolish the BATFE ... or the Second Amendment will be abolished for us.

In Ryan Horsley's words, "I was left speechless after watching The Gang. Having been a target of the BATFE ourselves, the other stories of abuse were eerily similar. Gun dealers are sitting targets; there is no winning against the BATFE. If they cannot win in court then they will bleed your finances until you give up and it is your tax money that supports them. The Gang will wake people up and make them realize that this false security that the BATFE protects us is a lie. This is an agency that cannot be reformed, it must be abolished."
