Three Men Arrested for Prepping for Martial Law
The feds arrested 3 men in North Carolina on Saturday and charged them with prepping for martial law. The men had stockpiled weapons, ammunition and tactical gear in preparation for a government takeover and the possibility of martial law. The feds began investigating in June when they received a tip that the men were attempting to build homemade explosives. While making homemade explosives is most likely what caused this investigation it also brings to light the fact that we all need to be aware of what is around us, who we talk too, where we go, what we do, and who we allow into our inner circle. The important thing to learn from this is that these men were making homemade explosives which is in fact illegal. These men now face federal conspiracy charges that carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. In addition, Campbell has been charged with a separate firearms charge punishable by 10 years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine. While some of these men's activities were ill advised it doesn't lesson the fact that the feds were targeting all of their activities not just those that are illegal. Keep your preps on the upside and don't do anything that is going to put you in this situation. According to authorities the men had purchased hand-held radios, Kevlar helmets, body armor and face masks. While these items are not illegal to purchase or own this action should make us very aware that we are all being watched. Keep your preps to yourself, keep your mouth shut and watch who you trust. "In addition to the FBI, agencies assisting in the investigation include the North Carolina Highway Patrol, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Federal Air Marshal Service as well as local police in Charlotte, Belmont, Mount Holly and Gastonia."
