But instead of appearing to be sentenced at a hearing scheduled last Wednesday, he had a document titled "Notice and Order' delivered to the municipal and state district judges handling his case, according to court records. The document, posted on Stanley's Web site, "ordered" the judges to dismiss the charge and return to him $1,500 in bond money, his "Smith and Wesson 6 shot .357 pistol and 6 each .357 bullets." The document also accused the judges of treason and included a statement he would have his "mutual defenses Pact Militia" order a warrant for their arrest. Bob Grant, district attorney for Adams and Broomfield counties, viewed the notice as a threat against the judges.
This is the kind of activism we don't need. Civil disobedience is one thing; making threats is another. As soon as threats are made the person making them moves from "gun rights activist" to "armed and dangerous lunatic".
