ADN has been running a series of interesting articles about a militia that got taken down up in Fairbanks a year or two ago.
Most folks remember Joe Miller; he challenged Sen Murkowski from the right, and surprisingly, won the primary. His campaign then imploded. One major misstep occurred when his security guy arrested an Alaska Dispatch journalist at a campaign event which led to a bunch of negative media attention. Turns out the security guy was working for the FBI. Huh. Go figure.
This article from ADN details the whole FBI sting and takedown. One lesson learned of the story: Do not buy, accept transfer of, or otherwise touch any sort of NFA item without getting your tax stamp. Protip: If there's a guy at the range or gun show offering people illegal NFA stuff and egging people on to go commit crimes, there's a good chance they're an undercovor officer or informant trying to entrap someone or they're one of the most retarded criminals ever. Call the local police or the ATF on the person advocating illegal activity and leave the scene.
