US vs Olofson

NOTE - From May 15th 2008 - links to other new documents received can be found indexed on this page.
Note also - large media files will only be available at, not on mirror site.


Information begins, bottom of page. (Later information)

Update 06/16/08 - We have received a copy of David Olofson's interview on "Live Wire" with GOA's Larry Pratt on May 20th. 12Mb MP3 file.

Update 05/20/08 - Two new links - we hear there is a stand-alone site for Lou Dobbs, with a page for this case. It does not appear to add a lot and has links to videos, however thus far any attempt to view the fifth video link has been unsuccessful. There was also an article on the case at Guns, by David Codrea - now seemingly missing, sorry..

Update 05/17/08 - To make sure the later Lou Dobbs clips can be accessed (they are bound to disappear eventually), we have converted these and archived them on the site.  As with the #1 and #2 clips (see links in last update) ........ these are considerably 'shrunk' and compressed to keep size reasonable - all clips are between 8Mb to 12Mb the largest.  Once more each is available as a Windows Media Video version for PC's or an MOV for Quicktime users.  The last program on Lou Dobbs - May 14th, does not appear to be available as a video clip unfortunately.

File links - Lou Dobbs #3 (WMV), #3 (MOV) and Lou Dobbs #4 (WMV), #4 (MOV) - May 8th 2008. The transcript of #4 (containing material omitted from the video clip) - is here.

We now also have the transcripts (in PDF format) from the court case here, (690Kb) and here (350Kb).

Update 05/09/08 - Sentencing was due two days ago but defence submitted more information.  Information that the BATFE had kept hidden originally by labelling it as containing tax details and so not available to the court.  This seems to not be the case and this plus an ATF document from 1986 throws a different light on things.  Lou Dobbs on CNN covered this after the court case but has again given time to it - you can see part of the latest segment using this link to the video clip - .

Earlier CNN clips from mid March can be downloaded, to suit your computer player requirements - #1 (WMV), #1 (MOV) ........ #2 (WMV), #2 (MOV) . The latest clip (#4) is not yet archived but should be available using the link quoted above. It should be noted (well) that the video clip did not include some valuable and positive comments from Ted Deeds of the The Law Enforcement Alliance of America, and for this reason we urge you to read the full transcript - to be found on this page.

A text article summary has now also become available which also refers to the various video links.


Update 1/11/08 - It would seem this case was a total debacle and Mr Olofson was found guilty. Len Savage was present and reports his experience in our new ''Talkin' to America" interview hosted by Aaron Zelman, which you should listen to - it will seriously alarm anyone who thinks justice prevails, let alone what it might mean for future BATFE attempts at prosecuting innocent firearms owners.


1/7/08 - This case is soon to go to trial - and we await the results hoping that the BATFE will totally lose the case. It is hoped to bring you news of the outcome when we get it.

The presentation is via scanned documents and so we present these for you to view - the large versions will just fit on a sheet of letter paper if printed out. There are three affidavits which are handwritten and not easy to read and three pages of ATF investigation report material. Click on any of the thumbnail images below to view the relevant document - but we also suggest you simply right click on each and ''save target'' to download to your own computer for viewing at leisure.

Here now also is the indictment document ... (download the PDF file, 40k)
