It turns out it wasn't a stand for civil rights: It was a stand for bragging rights. The files were up for less than 48 hours, then all of a sudden, they 'realized' when told by their 'lawyer' that what they were doing might get them in trouble, so they pulled it off. Of course now they get to brag about how much they are doing.
So now they get to run around and tell everyone how cool they are that they hosted a file on a blog for less than 2 days. Then they get to tell people how much they are doing, and how they refuse to cower. How they will never turn their guns in if ordered to by the government. How can I believe that you will never turn in your guns, if you don't even have enough guts to keep up a file with PLANS for a gun?
One of them even made claim that he believe John Adams when he said:
If men through fear, fraud or mistake, should in terms renounce and give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the great end of society, would absolutely vacate such renunciation; the right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of Man to alienate this gift, and voluntarily become a slave.I guess he changed his mind and decided to become a slave...
