WE STAND WITH GIBSON … the rally to support Gibson Guitars is today at the Scoreboard Restaurant & Sports bar in Nashville, TN. Come out and support Liberty & Freedom … first it was Gibson, tomorrow it could be you.


The Speakers at the event, among others.

  • Gibson Chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz
  • Congressman Marsha Blackburn
  • Talk Radio Hosts: Steve Gill, Phil Valentine, Mark Skoda
  • Amy Kremer, Chairman, Tea Party Express

There will also me musical performances from Eric Lee Bedingfield, Grant Austin Taylor, Madison Rising and Rivoli Review.

Come out and support Gibson Guitar against the over reaching Obama government that would storm a US company with guns a blazing over wood and the Lacey Act.

The law ensnaring Gibson is the Lacey Act of 1900, originally passed to regulate trade in bird feathers used for hats and amended in 2008 to cover wood and other plant products

Federal agents first raided Gibson factories in November 2009 and were back again Aug. 24, seizing guitars, wood and electronic records. Gene Nix, a wood product engineer at Gibson, was questioned by agents after the first raid and told he could face five years in jail.

“Can you imagine a federal agent saying, ‘You’re going to jail for five years’ and what you do is sort wood in the factory?” said Mr. Juszkiewicz, recounting the incident. “I think that’s way over the top.” Gibson employees, he said, are being “treated like drug criminals.”

Mr. Nix hasn’t been accused of any wrongdoing. He couldn’t be reached for comment.

The Gibson Guitar CEO responded to the unjust raids today:

Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar Corp., has responded to the August 24 raid of Gibson facilities in Nashville and Memphis by the Federal Government. In a press release, Juszkiewicz said: “Gibson is innocent and will fight to protect its rights. Gibson has complied with foreign laws and believes it is innocent of ANY wrong doing. We will fight aggressively to prove our innocence.”

The raids forced Gibson to cease manufacturing operations and send workers home for the day while armed agents executed the search warrants. “Agents seized wood that was Forest Stewardship Council controlled,” Juszkiewicz said. “Gibson has a long history of supporting sustainable and responsible sources of wood and has worked diligently with entities such as the Rainforest Alliance and Greenpeace to secure FSC-certified supplies. The wood seized on August 24 satisfied FSC standards.”

Juszkiewicz believes that the Justice Department is bullying Gibson without filing charges.

      Why, no, our current regime is NOT trying to act
      like the Gestapo is it? No charges filed, secretive
      (non-publicized by the captive press) selective
      raiding, NO transparency, unConstitutional actions,
      no government accountability, heavy force, and
      so on.

      This was a pure political raid by the Obama Administration. Gibson was a contributor to the Republican Party.

      A search of the records has determined that the incorrect import code was placed on a single document by the company recieving the material in the US. All other documents showed the correct code. Any reasonable person would have checked other records prior to authorizing a gestapo raid on a company.

      There is absolutley no excuse for this type of behavior from our federal government. All who participated need to be removed from their jobs.

      Obey the law or Change it.
      SM: No, fairly apply the law or don’t go after companies that donate to the GOP. Sorry, there are laws on the books that are not applied. How about Obama and his minions apply the laws on the books against illegals first and wood second.

      i guess Obama wants Holder to orchestrate a straw purchase for 2000 gibsons to illegal criminals so they can fool the public into thinking that the cartels are getting all their Gibsons in the United States. then , the government will confiscate all our Gibsons. remind you of Fast and Furious ? this could be Fast and Musical.
