not a fed, and i guess when it comes to the point, where attacking officials is an acceptable alternative to accepting rulings from above, it doesn't really matter anyways. Might as well prepare BEFORE talking about it earns you a raid and deportation. Terrorism works.
I picked a cheapo flashlight with aluminum body, 200 lumen, 5w LED, sliding focus and, as a neat bonus, a screw thread for screwing in a variety of color filters. cost me less than 10 bucks, it is bright enough to fully illuminate a school hallway, and its light. It also has a belt clip. It had 3 light functions, but it took one disassembly and reassembly to "fix" it. Haven't been able to find anything like it under 50 bucks on amazon. crazy.
