Moses v. Pharoh’s Army (Corps. of Engineers)

Clayton Cramer looks further into the story behind U.S. v Moses that I pointed to a few days ago.

Clayton concludes that the story as related by Bryan Fischer is essentially correct. RTWT, but here’s the pullquote:

When you are dealing with the federal government, remember that you are dealing with people with enormous power. They resent being ignored. They resent being told that you aren’t going to obey them. They are rather like an Egyptian pharoah (which makes the defendant’s name especially ironic).

And it isn’t just the federal government. Remember the recent incidents involving TSA drones? In one incident in Chicago a TSA agent is reported to have yelled, when a passenger she was abusing demanded to see a supervisor, “I have power! I have power!”

Yes, it seems to be all about power.

In New Jersey v. Pelleteri the Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division declared:

When dealing with guns, the citizen acts at his peril.

The more accurate statement seems to be, “When dealing with Government, the citizen acts at his peril.”
