When it comes to learning about FBI usurpations, only independent media outlets are available to the American public. A recent study demonstrates how far the agency has progressed in defending the rights of Americans.
“The FBI secretly provided forms to Americans between 2016 and 2019 to “voluntarily” relinquish their rights to own, buy or even use firearms, according to internal documents and communications,” Gabe Kaminsky revealed for Daily Caller in an exclusive investigation on the topic.
The signed documents, which were found by the gun rights organization Gun Owners of America (GOA), create severe legal problems, according to attorneys.
“We’re into a pre-crime, Minority Report type of world where the FBI believes it can take constitutional rights away from anyone it thinks possibly might pose a threat in the future,” said Robert Olson, outside counsel for GOA.
According to the article, the FBI delivered the forms to individuals in their homes and at other unidentified locations, according to papers obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and provided with the DCNF by the gun rights organization Gun Owners of America (GOA). Between 2016 and 2019, at least 15 individuals signed the confidential papers, which require signatories to identify themselves as either a “threat to themselves or others” or as lacking the “mental ability to contract or govern their life appropriately.”
GOA and Second Amendment attorneys informed the DCNF that the availability of the papers raises severe legal problems. (RELATED: Video Appears To Show ATF Agents And Officer Showing Up Without A Warrant To Demand Information On A Man’s Guns)
“We’re into a pre-crime, Minority Report type of world where the FBI believes it can take constitutional rights away from anyone it thinks possibly might pose a threat in the future,” said Robert Olson, the GOA’s weapons law expert and outside counsel. Which is absolutely not what one would anticipate in the United States.
The document claims that signatories will be permanently recorded with the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), which would legally prohibit them from “purchasing, possessing, or using any weapon.” Uncertain are the FBI’s specific criteria for identifying signatures, although some forms contain agency notes describing current investigations.

Many signatories allegedly made violent threats in online chat rooms, in person and on social media platforms, FBI notes show. The 15 signed forms obtained by the DCNF show FBI agents in Massachusetts, Michigan and Maine presented them to Americans — whose names were redacted by the bureau.
While the existence of the FBI form itself was first revealed in 2019 by the firearms blog Ammoland, the outlet did not provide evidence of it being used at the time. GOA obtained the signed forms as part of its lawsuit initiated in January 2020 against the bureau to compel disclosure of records related to the forms. CONTINUE READING…
