From braintree!!!!!!pipex!warwick!bsmail!plmlp Thu Nov 2 15:57:56 1995 Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology Path: braintree!!!!!!pipex!warwick!bsmail!plmlp From: (Martin Poulter) Subject: Guns Stockpiled at Scn base- REPOST Message-ID: Sender: (Usenet news owner) Nntp-Posting-Host: Organization: University of Bristol, England Date: Sun, 29 Oct 1995 15:51:53 GMT Lines: 54 SCIENTOLOGY IS ARMED AND DANGEROUS The following is an extract from an affidavit by Andre Tabayoyon. Here he is describing his responsibilities while at the "Gold" base at Hemet, California: 28. In 1991 I had to prepare the base so that it could be defended against the possibility of being taken over by the authorities in a time of crisis. There are approx. 750 people at the base. I was in charge of a project designing the base security system, the perimeter fence, the ultra razor barriers, the lighting of the perimeter fence, the electronic monitors, the concealed microphones, the ground sensors, the motion sensors and hidden cameras which were installed and all over the area -- even outside the base. 29. Church monies were used to purchase semi-automatic assault rifles (HK 91 assault rifles capable of firing 300-350 rounds of ammunition a minute, 45 caliber pistols, .380 automatic weapons and twelve gauge shotguns were stockpiled. These weapons were not registered. Church monies were also used to buy the ammunition. 30. Church monies were also used to purchase a large amount of pounds of gunpowder for the construction of various types of explosive devices to be used in the defense of the base. 31. The motorcycle guards were trained to carry loaded cocked 45 caliber pistols. The eagle scout, mounted high above the base, was trained to carry a high powered rifle with a telescopic scope. There is also a 1,000 millimeter telescope up with 'eagle'. 32. I developed three classifications of intruder and established the level of deadly force to use for each. In addition to firearms, the guards were taught how to effectively wield little batons. The basic things like striking to the center of the heart, the center of the solar plex and then to the side of the head, etc. 33. At church expense, I trained the security guards and other base personnel in the use of these weapons and explosives. I also trained them in the close quarter use of fatal force. We built a combat range for training purposes and I instructed Scientologists on various ways of shooting people. I also trained them in night vision and ambush techniques. We used a ravine that was a natural round shield so the noise would not cause any noisy inquiries.
