In a warning from Rand Paul from the senate floor, where he speaks out against provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, we learned today that the government considers having guns or storing more than 7 days of food a possible terrorist activity.
In the speech, Rand Paul warns Americans that, “Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weather proofed, someone who has 7 days of food in their house” can be considered a potential terrorist by the federal government.
He warns that under new provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, the federal government can lock you up indefinitely if you are suspected of activities that they consider terrorism related. That’s right the military will now have the power to lock up anyone, even American citizens, without due process and without being convicted of a crime.
