Gibson CEO "We are being persecuted"
Gibson Guitars just had a federal SWAT team make it's second raid on the company. No charges were filed after the first raid, but the company has still not gotten its confiscated property back. They are not accused of any US crime. The raid was prompted by reports that Gibson used some kind of wood for their guitars that is against the law to use in Brazil! Fed stormtroopers are now coming into private businesses with guns for using wood that other countries don't want used! Even worse, Martin Guitar uses the same type of wood but is a big Democratic donor, and they don't get raided. Click the link for the outrageous back story.
