I got a call from a friend of mine in the Alpena County Sheriff Department just as I was getting my wife to her chemo session at the hospital this morning. "Bobby," my friend said, "WBKB wants to file charges of harassment against you because of all of the phone calls they have been getting about your show. I just wanted to give you the heads up that the State Police are looking for you and would like to talk to you about it."

"Did I do something wrong?" I asked. "Not as far as this department is concerned," he replied. "We know who you are, what you are trying to do, and we don't have any problem with it at all; but I don't think that the State boys have figured you out yet."

Personally, I'm not worried. As far as I'm aware, I haven't done anything but exercise my 1st Amendment right to free speech. I very specifically asked my viewers to "Be nice. We have the Law on our side, so there is no reason for any type of threats," so I'm anxiously awaiting to see what basis is for a charge of ANY type to be laid against me.

I have been extremely careful to follow the law to the letter thus far, and I don't feel as if I have done anything wrong whatsoever. If, however, I am arrested when I go to the State Police post, I welcome the opportunity to have Dan Korobkin, staff attorney with the Michigan ACLU, represent me as he has offered to do in the past. I have his number in my wallet, right next to the card of a local bail bondsman. LOL.

So please keep a good thought in your brain housing group for me, and maybe keep a prayer on your lips. I am doing exactly what I feel is right, and it makes no difference if the threats come from gangbangers, anti-gun nuts, or the 4th Estate: I will NOT be silenced.

Until WBKB agrees to cover this story properly, KEEP POURING IT ON with your phone calls, emails, and posts on their Facebook and Twitter accounts, until I tell you otherwise; but remember: Please be NICE.

Semper Fi, and God Bless,
