In the still of the night in a quiet, rural Alabama town Monday evening, two cars quietly pulled up outside the home of nationally-recognized gun rights advocate Mike Vanderboegh.
Vanderboegh's wife, Rosie, and daughter, Zoe, were both in Zoe's upstairs bedroom. Mike was downstairs reclining on the couch.
Suddenly a projectile broke through the window of the bedroom, leaving a gaping hole about one inch in diameter. Although the projectile was strong enough to break through the glass it apparently was not strong enough to penetrate through the blinds or the curtains. The object simply rolled off of the window sill onto the floor. Mike later identified the object as a .36 caliber ball bearing.
Photos of the forensic evidence are provided here.
The ensuing shock of the two women roused Mike from his couch and into Zoe's bedroom. Rosie told Mike that as soon as the ball bearing came bursting through the window, she and Zoe heard the two cars outside speed away.
As Mike inspected the damage and the projectile, two cars drove by very slowly. He says he has no way of knowing if these were the same two cars that sped off when the shot was fired, but before he could get outside to confront them, the cars had sped away.
The sheriff's deputy who took an incident report at the scene stated that there had been no other reports of similar activity in the region in the recent past.
Mike believes that in all likelihood the attack was perpetrated by "a bunch of kids with a slingshot." But one has to wonder just how much he actually believes that.
Those who have stated publicly that they are part of a patriot resistance movement that not only seeks to restore full Second Amendment rights to all citizens everywhere but to restore the entirety of Constitutional law have been increasingly targeted by members of the collectivist machine that now runs the country.
Patriots have been beaten and whipped. Some have had their lives and that of their families threatened. Others have been the victims of a scheme to frame them for pedophilia and child porn. Still others have had SWAT teams break down their doors in the middle of the night as law enforcement with machine guns and hoods demand that they lie on the floor with their hands behind their backs.
In time it was shown that these patriots were the victims of a collectivist scheme to so shock them by the home invasion that they would be fooled into thinking criminals were behind it, and thus be lured into firing shots at law enforcement officers.
The perpetrators of this particular scheme would call law enforcement and falsely claim that residents in the home of the intended target were engaged in all sorts of illegal activity, such as the illegal drug trade, child porn, or violence with firearms. This is enough to send SWAT teams with heavy artillery to the homes of innocent victims, who are then treated as common criminals.
Miraculously, no one thus far has mistakenly fired a shot at the law enforcement teams, or at least none have been reported.
In all likelihood these attacks will grow more common as we near the 2014 midterm elections. Remember, during the 2012 election cycle, the Obama machine used the full force of government and its heavy intimidation tactics to suppress the votes of patriots, the Tea Party, and conservative Christians.
Since all of America will now be watching, it is unlikely the IRS or FBI will be used in that manner in 2014. This means that the government machine will utilize rank thugs from the streets to attempt to intimidate patriots. And thus, the potential for deadly outcomes is dramatically increased.
