On March 10, 2011, five members of the Second Amendment Task Force/Alaska Peacemakers Militia were arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping. The group, led by Francis “Schaeffer” Cox, 27, had stockpiled firearms and munitions and was planning to kill multiple Alaska State Troopers and a federal judge. Cox had previously stated that “our government is sliding into tyranny, a police state” and boasted that law enforcement authorities “know we’ve got ‘em outmanned and outgunned.”
A YouTube video was recently uncovered that shows Rep. Don Young (R-AK-At Large) signing an insurrectionist "Letter of Declaration" drafted by Cox on April 13, 2009.
