Second Amendment: Do Militias Matter Today?

SandyHookBookThe role of gun ownership has always been emotionally charged, but Sandy Hook’s news has again heightened the rhetoric. This debate has spilled over and has become international.

Anti-gun lobbyists consider the Second Amendment antiquated, asking what militias could protect us from today. The pro-gun side answers: “Tyrants”, citing King George III, Hitler’s Germany, or another event so seemingly distant that the argument seems academic. Even some who want stricter controls might concede the home-defense argument. But they would never want Joe Public armed with the sorts of guns carried by soldiers and police. Are militias relevant today?

Do you think it strange that citizens might be called to grab their gun, and rush to the defense of their community or region against some threat? Why is it strange? Small towns do the same thing with volunteer fire departments. Bankers, plumbers, or gym teachers, all become firemen when there’s a fire raging. You can’t wait for experts to put out the fire, everybody gets involved. That same principle describes a militia.

The full version of this column is now only available in Doug Giles’ book, “Sandy Hook Massacre: When Seconds Count, The Police Are Minutes Away”.

    Fabulous piece.

    Excellent article ,,, no one will take my guns until I run out of ammo. and they kill me .

    • Jumper82

      Or they kill me. They are going to have to work for it.

      • bbutchb

        They will sneak up on you at 4 a.m. and swarm you like the gang of spineless cowards and traitors that they are………..

        • Mike11C

          And when they start that, armed citizens will do the same to them. It’s time to hide some of your weapons and ammo for the “post-confiscation counter attack”.

        • polmutant

          ahhh so you see that you live in the unniggarrdly socialist of amafrika. land of the depraved and home of the enslaved. cowards correct. there is no difference between a cop and a criminal. they both exploit human depravity for a paycheck. although the cop is inferior as it travels in packs like dogs. and criminals have enough fortitude to go it alone. God bless America! God dammn the obamanation of desolation.

          • Sandra Lee Smith

            Not all cops will stand for this; some Sheriffs have publicly stated they’ll stand with the people against this tyranny! And with cops, generally where the boss leads the rest follow!

          • Lauralee Hensley

            God Bless The Sheriffs That Do What Is Right For We The People, Even If It Means Telling Obama, Congress And The Like, That They Can Go Pound Sand.

          • polmutant

            thre is difference between cop and peace officer. a peace pfficer does not put his nose in private business. a cop looks to “bust” people as they are usually inferior and think they have to prove something.

          • Attila

            A cop is also under a lot of pressure to arrest and confiscate for profit. Such scoundrels should be resisted in all possible venues. Just remember that government “services”, whether they are of benefit to you or not, will be funded by you.

          • polmutant

            you are correct. stay safe, and protect yourself, the only service gov gives is lip service.

            The 11th consecutive annual survey by this group was completed on April 1, 1998. Survey questions were asked (by mail) of 16,000 Chiefs of police and Sheriffs representing a cross section of professional officers involving every State. Among the several topics included on the survey were the following questions dealing with firearms:

            Do you believe any law-abiding citizen should be able to purchase a firearm for sport or self-defense?

            YES 92.3%

            Do you believe misuse of firarms by children to be a “public health problem?”

            NO 51.1%

            Do you believe such a course (mandatory gun safety and laws course in order to buy a firearm) may violate Second Amendment rights to bear arms?

            YES 70.2% http://www.largo.org/lawEnforce.html

          • Sandra Lee Smith

            Let’s hope the majority STILL stand on those beliefs! That survey is a bit outdated, and many may have been replaced by sheriffs more in line with what the PTB believe and want; which would be a tragedy for America and humanity at large. I know we lost one in AZ last fall in a 1 car accident, the circumstances of which still don’t ring right.

    • CrustyOldGeezer

      I hope they forget their gloves when they pry my weapon from my dead fingers, because that barrel is going to be pretty d*mned HOT.

    • chester1818

      And they will kill you if (they?) come for you unless you are part of a well regulated citizens’ militia. Without numbers, training, leadership, and a plan you will probably be captured, injured, or killed before running out of ammo.

      “It is not worth while to try to keep
      history from repeating itself, for man’s character will always make the
      preventing of the repetitions impossible.” –Mark Twain

      In other words, each exceeding generation “assumes” its cognitive skills are far superior than previous unenlightened generations. But how much “enlightenment” can filter through closed eyelids? And you know what “u” & “me” become. Isn’t it ironic that we become the symbol for today’s Democrat Party?

    DAH;; IS OBAMA A FREAKING DICK-TATER???????????the only way this ego maniac is going to leave office is by force…..

  • Bob Honiker

    “The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.”

    • adamenochnoah

      Don’t you think we are almost there?

      • Sandra Lee Smith

        Drop the “almost”! Hilary starts pushing the UN gun ban; there’s a mass shooting in Aurora; she starts pushing it again, and we have a Sandy Hook: time to start connecting the DOTS, folks; these false flag events are DESIGNED to “convince” us it’s in the “interests of safety” that we give up our guns, without a fight! DON’T give up your weapons under ANY circumstances! “Hitler” is IN our WH now!

        • adamenochnoah

          I agree. We are “there”. I used the word “almost” in an attempt to revive the Judge’s brain cells…

    • jane

      well said, Judge. The major thing almost everyone has overlooked is the mental illness of those who commit these attrocities. Every one of the shooters has the look of insanity, and that is being over ridden by those in government who want to take our guns away so we will have no protection when they take over our United States of America and enslave us like the Germans did to the Jewish. It is comming people and at some point, there will need to be a strong response from The People, it is a matter of when. Didn’t mean to hijack your post but this site is keeping me from posting because I tell the truth.

      • Billy Jack

        I agree fully with what Jane has to say. We have corruption and disregard for the Constitution by both parties. If ther were true support for it ‘Baby Doc’ would have been Impeached many times over. That has not happened. Both parties voted for NDAA, allowing for indefinite incarceration of Americans on American soil in clear violation of the 1st and 4th Amendments to the Constitution. DHS now has a ‘civilian’ component of young men and women, recently graduated from its academy. They are so assist FEMA after disaters but they are under DHS. Is that not a misnomer? A Daisy Chain, if you will, of Federal departments holding hands to do who knows what and at whose behest.

      • salem

        I heard all of these shooters were taking anti depressant medication and one doctor said the common thread in these shootings is the medication they were taking not the guns.

        • upsidedownjack

          We just need to stop and take a PILL for everything! And the Food serves will be Solant Green? I think were here. Time to step up!

      • Frdmftr

        And the thing everyone on this list is missing is that Sandy Hook was a false flag — two guys in cammo were arrested by the cops and then “disappeared,” never to be heard from again (this according to the police dispatch frequency recording and witnesses who saw them carted off in handcuffs and heard one of them say “I didn’t do it”). Whoever is pulling off these false flag operations overplayed their hand this time and had to rely on the head cop threatening to arrest anyone contradicting the official narrative. Oh, and according to MSNBC, they found FOUR handguns on the premises, not two, and Lanza’s AR-15 was locked in the trunk of his mother’s car. I doubt Lanza ever fired a shot, even into himself.

        • DenverKitty

          Frd, odd that I also saw some things that didn’t add up in the Sandy Hook mess.

        • sidewinderaz

          There were similar stories coming from the Aroura, CO shooting. Even some witnesses claimed one of the shooters was let in the back door. Other reports claimed seeing him being dragged from his apartment to a waiting vehicle.
          But then these reports miraculously disappeared.

      • Made_in_the_USA

        I’m not certain that all of these mass murders were committed by mentally unstable or those drugged up on prescription meds for mental health issues, but I believe most were.
        Please consider the following: rather than trying to disarm the American public and all the wasted tax dollars it’s costing us, why don’t we investigate the mental health industry and the medications being used on certain groups of people. And what about all the violence promoted by Hollywood? And the violence portrayed in the video game industry? I have watched a friend play Call of Duty, in which without any remorse whatsoever, he killed over and over again to try to win this game. Although this particular game is with uniformed soldiers trying to win a war, the players are still being de-sensitized to the respect for life. And this can lead to irrational thinking in the ability to differentiate between the game and reality.

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      They don’t refuse to stand for re-election; they just insure it’s rigged so they win! Same end result; there hasn’t been a “fair” election here in this century at least.

      Think we are there!

    • Attila

      Agreed, but remember that in many parts of the world, politicians are reluctant to pass or enforce oppressive laws for a very good reason: numerous bloody revolutions. If only our own politicians went about their business looking apprehensively over their shoulders.

      You are right on, if we go in head first without some sort of protection we could be heading for a knockout and not see what hit us.

          Yes it is and its not just the Democrats there are a lot of Republicans that need to go also. Hope we can make it until the 2014 elections and start culling out the ones who don’t care.

        • marie

          It is broken, that’s why people have to take action, however, all the people government brings from middle east, asia, Africa are happy with our government and they start to outnumber Americans who care about being free and be the best country in the world! I think that’s the reason for government conitinuing with massive immigration so they have sheep to vote for them

            You are right.That is the reason for the immigration. Feel free to spread that link around. Although I know it will fall on deaf ears.

    We need them even more today. With armed anarchist gangs running loose on the streets, the only defense is the individual with a gun. It gives the individual the ability to defend aganst overwhelming numbers of violent attackers. This is most prevalent in large cities, so any argument against having a gun, especially a semi automatic is to the detriment of the people living there. The police either can not, or will not defend the individual, so they are left on their own to survive in an increasingly hostile environment. Most people do not think of violence as recreation, whereas the gangs do. When the individual in the violent neighborhoods wake up to the fact that recreational violence is a part of their neighborhood, and that the police are not there to protect them, they have to defend themselves, and the only equalizer is a gun. It may also require small civilian armed militias to accompany individuals in the area, to guarantee safe passage for the residents, and travellers. Thanks to Sam Colt we have the means to be equal.

    • $5708171

      Problem is that today, we have been “trained” to sit back and let the “professionals” (i.e., the police, the military, the U.N.) do the dirty work. Our role as “citizens” (subjects, really) is to each keep producing our little products for the greater society to use and don’t be bothered by all this “gun” talk. It’s bad to “take the law into our own hands” or worse, become a group of “vigilantes”. Any act against the sitting government is sedition, period. Citizen/subjects have no business meddling in government.

      I do not believe that we can save our country. We have allowed it to rot beyond any hope of salvation. We have, as a country, lost our soul. We are no longer Christian, and we no longer care that we are not. Diversity is our new god.

      Our hope is now as individuals, as a tiny remnant to preserve what we know of freedom and of the value of the individual. I know there are lots of people out there who will disagree with me and quote the “cold, dead fingers” rhetoric, but get real. Who is going to lead this charge? When will it occur? Against whom, exactly? Who will defeat the millions upon millions of heavily armored U.N. troops that are coming to “keep us safe”?

  • Szabla

    A while back, Steamboat had 2 Biker gangs have a shootout. The Sheriff and Deputies at that time wanted to arrest the ones involved. Both gangs came out fully armed and essentially told the (I am guessing the number) 6 officers they will take care of their own. Out gunned and out manned the officers left. The gangs took their own and left. Now when they come into Steamboat the gangs are met with equal force, from multiple agencies.
    Force by the gun is still relevant.
    Also there is a state to this day that in their Constitution the Residence are the Militia. I would look at Alaska’s Constitution.

    Remember the 80 people (many were children) murdered by Clinton’s thugs at Waco, Texas! Reno and others should be charged with murder. We must have militia groups and armed individuals to stop that type of abuse by the federal government as the chief law officer (county sheriff) did not protect this church group. Know this, they had not violated any federal law before the assault on their compound!

  • voldemort

    The need for a militia? How about a government forcing legislation on its people against their will? How about a tyrant legislating thru executive edict illegally violating the constitution by bypassing congress? How about this person telling congress if they will not give him exactly what he wants he will just do it by executive fiat? If congress will not do their job and jerk him up short it may take the militia to reinstate constitutional law. This is not Canada this is the USA.

      Speaking of Canada. Last summer we went to Canada on a vacation and when we crossed the border the officials confiscated my wife’s pepper spray. That too was illegal in Canada. You could not defend yourself but you purchase some for the use on bears. When we went to a state park there were signs everywhere about leaving your stuff in cars. Warnings against you valuables. i dso not ever recollect seeing one of those signs here.

  • SamDalton

    To the author, I think you have really missed a much better example. You need to look up Athens Tennessee in the mid 1940s. The local county government fell into complete corruption during WWII. The elections became increasingly rigged and the government became tyrranical. Returning Veterans came home only to find corruption very pervasive and ran candidates against them in the next election. When the corrupt politicians tried to close poling places early and confiscate election boxes, a group of veterans went to the local armory, secured weapons and took over the Sheriff’s Department Offices and Election boxes by force against the tyrranical local county government. The election was completed and the corrupt officials replaced. None of the veterans were ever prosecuted and the government was returned to a functional and legitamate one.

    • JohnWayne

      A true historical event! Thanks SamDalton for the reminder. I had almost forgotten!

    • polmutant

    • rbulova

      The Athens, Tenn. story is similar to Phenix City, Alabama. Early 1950s. The entire town was thoroughly corrupt and feeding off the soldiers at nearby Fort Benning, GA. Martial Law was declared and the place was thoroughly sanitized.

    I took my oath in 1969 to fight tyranny on foreign soil and will do so at home WE who served still carry that responsibility. I also took an oath to protect and to serve but I have retired now from law enforcement but I have never had a run in with law abiding citizens but plenty of criminals who I arrested. My opinion about Obama is that of a criminal because he and Holder armed the drug cartels, his pandering to terrorist groups and his spending assault on the solvency of our country. Obama has an agenda and purpose for his illegal and bully type mentality which I find offensive to the common man. So I will continue to keep my weapons close that the 2nd Amendment guarantees my inherent right to bear arms to protect the Constitution and my country from foreign and domestic enemies. The relevant Amendment reads: “A well regulated militia being necessary
    to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and
    bear arms shall not be infringed.” it was written as a declaration of war to our enemies. .

    • David Weakland

    “The militia is the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or trample upon the rights of the people.”

  • shel

    If one believes in statistics which prove that gun controls in cities, states, and nations have higher crime and murder rates than those areas without such controls they will realize the histeria for gun controls is political for fear and votes or lack of belief in the value of statistics and science. Better to have the ability to defend oneself than have only thieves and murderers armed.

  • Robert Burke

    What right does Obama have to protect himself with security that has high capacity magazines in their military style weapons… that he takes away from 313 million other citizens of America? Common sense dictates his security teams have proper capacity, proper magazines, proper military style weapons. And 313 million other Americans do not? Of course, Natural Law says we do. Of course, Obama Law says we don’t.

    This current Administration and its disregard for the Constitution of the United States has awakened a Sleeping Giant.

    This President has no regard for Religious Freedom and now he is gunning for our 2nd Amendment Freedoms.

    In case one is wondering why I mentioned Religious Freedoms look how Obama is shoving down the throats of both Catholics and Christians His HHS Mandate. This mandate goes against the Consciences of all those devout to Christ and HIS Church and anyone that breaks this law it is punishable by paying fines. This is what Communism does to those that do not adhere to the State.

    Obama is cunning because he uses Joe Biden and Pelosi as Catholic examples. LIke I am going to fall for that. They along with other House and Senate Members that voted for HHS Mandate should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church, period.

    If this current administration doesn’t alarm you what they are doing then there is something terribly wrong with America.

    The Government Oppression is growing and no more are we ready to keep silent at man’s behest when God commands us to speak. We ask that liberty be given to our people to go their way in the future under the sign of the Cross of Christ, in order that our grandsons may not curse their elders on the ground that their elders left them a state on earth that closed to them the Kingdom of God.

  • vrod

    I think these Dems who think Obama can sign an executive order and it will end all gun violence, need him to sign an executive order and ban the flu, heron and meth.

    I’m sure the majority of us are saddened and upset over the murders of the children in Newtown Conn,but we can never allow our 2nd Amendment rights to be taken away.We must be allowed to defend our homes and our families and of course ourselves from those who would do us harm.The Constitution and Bill of Rights are what makes America great,and different from the rest of the world.It has worked for over 200 years and will work for 200 more.Just remember Gun Control is not about guns,it is about control.The Liberals and Socilists who are now running our government want control of every aspect of our lives.America is and has always been about personal freedom as long as you obey the law.Our Freedom is what draws millions of immigrants to our shores seeking a better way of life.Without freedom we will all be subjects of a Socialist State under the heal of a Dictator.I’ll take freedom—-How about You?

    • txlady706

      when you start your argument with an “apology”, you have lost all credibility with a liberal. They are weak animals. When an animal senses a weakness, it doesn’t try to HELP, it, swiftly, dispatches it. Just a friendly bit of advice – start off your “debate” (libs don’t like the proper definition of “argument.”) from a position of strength and don’t show empathy until your original point is conveyed.

      • Jackfeucht

        It wasn’t an Argument or an Apology(I would never apologize to a stupid Liberal for being an American patriot) as you put it.It was an explanation of the facts for hard headed lefties,liberals and socialists who do not seem to understand our rights,or why the founders put them in our founding documents.So you write your way and I’ll write my way.You must be a Teacher or a Liberal and I don’t think much of either these days.

    Yes we need a well armed militia if you do not believe me reflect back on Fort Hood. The soldiers have no guns. Clinton saw to that. So we need someone who can defend out own freedoms.

  • davienne

    we need a “WELL REGULATED MALITIA ” more now , than ever before..

      Fully Armed and equipped per the Enumerated Powers of the Constitution.

      “To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States,

      reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;”

      The State is a much better source of training and disciplining than a dictatorship in DC.

  • JohnWayne

    An excellent article! The bearing of arms by the American people is certainly as important today as it was in the late 1700’s. There are still tyrants whose goal is to subjugate the American people just like back then. I don’t intend to be a victim nor will I stand by idlly and allow that to happen. I applaud the states of Oklahoma and Wyoming for addressing this latest assault on our freedom. I hope more states have the courage to do so!

  • chuckie2u

    Just remember Katerina and the T.V.shots of the police walking through Wall-Mart loading up their carts with goodies. Those neighborhoods who were armed and stood together prevented machete carry thugs from doing what thugs do best, rape,rob and pillage until the Military could come in restore order. The Governing bodies had high tailed it to dry ground leaving the masses to fend for themselves. You also notice what was fixed first. The Football Stadium.

  • Buzg

    I find it interesting that all of the gun grabbers are fuming over the AR-15, especially when the CT shooter did not take it into the school. He took 4 handguns into the school, but the AR was in his vehicle. It could be a total coincidence that NBC News reported Adam
    Lanza’s AR-15 rifle was left in his car and was never used in the shooting at all.
    Google stated that the United Way Sandy Hook donation support page was created on December 11, 2012 — a full three days before the shooting took place.
    Interesting, no?
    I agree with “slickzip”.

    • CrustyOldGeezer

      odd, that site was up for any search engine to find until…. as soon as the fact that it preceeded the shooting.

    Walker writes an articulate post. I would comment about his title question as follows: Given the current state of things, no. A militia as described in the U.S. Constitution is of no value because it does not exist. And, speaking of thorny issues, how would it go down with government should a formal effort to organize a militia actually happen??
    Can one possibly imagine the vitriol of the majority media?! I’m reminded of the title of Trent Lotts’ book in considering this premise……..”Herding Cats”……talk about a singular need for leadership! Years ago in observing a common human behavior I found cause to coin the phrase: “It would be easier to herd sheep in a parking lot – than humans”. Still, the appearance of mass numbers of citizens with arms appearing against governmental tyranny would send quite a message! I recall another quote. I’ll paraphrase…… From Admiral Yamamoto around the beginning of WWII: “It would be foolish for any nation to consider invasion of the United States. “They would find a rifle pointed at them from behind every blade of grass”. (The informed will recall that the admiral came to us for a university education.) Could we really expect Yamamotos’ truth to apply in the case of citizen defiance against internal tyranny? Apparently, many in our government think they know the answer. Question is: Exactly how much faith do they have in their answer? I seem to notice that the current flap just might be doing some adjusting in attitudes governmental??

    • harrynaz

      Re: “…how would it go down with government [in response to] a formal effort to organize a militia…?”

      Bill and Billary showed us that response when, soon after taking power, they launched their attack on “Right-Wing Militias.” Remember, they first blamed “the militia” for the Oklahoma City bombing.

    When the ATF, FBI or what ever Agents and Local Police or SWAT, start to “Snatch” Gun Owners from their Homes to enforce any Bans, that is when they Become Legal Targets!!! So the Local Militia Groups start Patrolling their communities watching for Vehicle Convoys for Raids. When they come, Patrols will Ambush the Feds and the SHOOTING will be the Modern Day Paul Revere Alert…

      You are right they will be legal targets because they will be enforcing an illegal law. Makes them nothing more than a common criminal.

    You will need us civilian militias in the near future. The way our federal government is doing business in all aspects it is doomed. Then all the naysayers will be begging for our help because there will be a revolution all over again and they will not be able to defend themselves. Everyone tends to forget that the militia during the revolution was normal everyday civilians who brought their own weapons, no uniforms. Each town had its own individual militia to defend their own. There was no big standing military like today in the beginning, just civilian American patriots fighting for freedom. When our government falls so does the military, most will be on our side.

  • Christopher Beattie

    A very good article and a very good point but also consider the original purpose of a militia. Every so often you hear that holding all our debt China will one day “own” us? But with a well armed militia, how would they ever manage to “collect?” (The cost of collecting would exceed any value from collecting.) It is a protection against all tyrants, foreign and domestic. Domestic tyrants include governments and gangsters alike.

    • CrustyOldGeezer

      Actually, since the federal reserve has no ‘ownership’ of America, China will own the federal reserve.

      I see a win-win for the People, and a lot of bankers and financiers trying to find some place to hide from the Chinese government wanting their money…

    What is being lost in this argument is that the first 10 Amendments ARE the Bill of Rights! The framers intended it so and either we believe in the Constitutional Republic or we do not. Those who wish to be called ‘Progressives’ need to depart the Republic and find somewhere that is more to their liking. The Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the fabric of our society is and must be off limits! The assault upon the very foundation of this Constitutional Republic, the greatest Democracy in the history of the world must be stopped and the words of our founding fathers, most notably Thomas Jefferson, but many others warned about protecting the democratic Constitutional Republic. Those words rang true when they were spoken and ring true today. Tyrants are tyrants, despots are despots. We face that from within today and the oath of our service members and public servants to protect America, the constitution, our democracy should not ring hollow. We must be prepared to protect the United States from all enemies, foreign or domestic. Enough said!

  • Canonman

    “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms, and by substituting a regular army in the stead of a resort to the militia. The friends of a free government cannot be too watchful, to overcome the dangerous tendency of the public mind to sacrifice, for the sake of mere private convenience, this powerful check upon the designs of ambitious men.

And to FAIL to see the warning signs all around us today is to be willfully blind to the truth and reality!

  • jd332

    A well regulated militia, keep in mind:
    The police are the first line of defence of the government against the citizens. The police should not have the weapons our military has, but the citizens should have every right to have the same weapons that the police have.

  • Buck

    All those GREAT words of resistance even I use will be useless when they come in as a battle trained swat team and catch you totally unexpected . Nor can you form groups and prepare in advance because then they label you ” terrorists ” even though they are the terrorists , and us the law to take everything you or your militia owns , as they have done to several self styled militias over the last ten or fifteen years , even in many cases where they had to trump up and make up charges against them . some will resist , even some violently , but I fear it will not be enough .

  • dlzimbelman

    The importance of militias is more emphasized today than since the Revolution. The government is proving this point every day by the way Obama is governing. By-passing the Congress with the health care law, he’s now being urged to by-pass the Congress again by Reid, Pelosi and other Democrats in Congress with the battle over the debt ceiling. The downsizing and degrading of our military is another reason we will have to keep our weapons to protect ourselves from anyone who wants to interfere in our business and way of live. Keep your weapons because soon you may have to fight the Obama Brownshirts to keep your liberty and country.

  • Ruger S Redhawk

    Personally after seeing some of the things posted on the internet (Hurricane Katrina lawlessness by the New Orleans Police Dept – gun grabbing by military units and National Guard that was sent there to “assist” their fellow citizens)
    I think we’re Eff’d.
    Unless Military and Law Enforcement “Stand Down” as regards any “unlawful” gun grab they, the military, are far better equipped and trained. It would be like the Indians equipped with bows and arrows fighting against guys equipped with fully automatic weapons and armored personnel carriers, kevlar vests, armed drones etc., Can you say Massacre?
    What should have been done to maintain a well armed citizenry was EQUAL arming in all the new sophisticated weaponry. That is
    Either that (or/and) MANDATORY Lifetime National Guard membership by a citizens that are fully versed in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights… especially the Second Amendment ! Loser (anti-2nd Amendment aholes) need not apply!
    Individual “State Control” of its National Guard.
    The tipping point is going to be – if our military and law enforcement believe in the Constitution and Bill Of Rights. I pray that they do.

    They call the National Guard the new militia but I believe that when the government has the guns than they are not a militia but a state army. It was not an army that beat the British, they were school teacher, farmers, doctors, plow hands and a lot of others that had no military training.

    The founding fathers considered the militia to consist of all able bodied males over 18 years old.

    The Point is not that of a Militia, but that the citizens to form the Militia, Have the weapons needed to protect the rights of the Citizens.

    Why the 2nd Amendment?

    Have YOU asked yourself why we are the benefactors of the Second Amendment? Do you come the conclusion that it was meant to allow Americans the right to “keep and bear arms”? Yes,— that’s the conclusion but NOT the reason. The 1st Amendment not only concerns the freedom of religion and speech but that is also the conclusion. The reason was to restrict any congressional actions against our rights: As it is written; “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Okay, how about the 2nd amendment; why was it so important that it was listed before all the remaining amendments? Because it was the hammer given to the people, if necessary, to protect us from a tyrannical power structure by those who may decide the Constitution is nothing more then a document consisting of twenty six plus one articles that may be disregarded if it conflicts with government’s control. Okay now take a real look at the 2nd Amendment: “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the Right of the People to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” It is clear, those rights are given to the people to assure the security of a Free State. It gives the people the means to form a militia in order at to protect all of our Constitutional rights. Not the enacted government enforcement, but the people. (A militia is an irregular army comprised of citizens) “I ask Sir, what is the MILITIA? It is the WHOLE people. To disarm the PEOPLE is the best and most effectual way to ENSLAVE them.” -George Mason

    Today we have a large faction of Americans who think America is above government control and empowerment, because our elected official have sworn to protect us from becoming a sovereign power structure. Really? We have officials in our elected government who have disregarded the Constitution and stated it is only a piece of history that should be considered no more then a “living document” that requires up to day legislative changes.

    This country was founded on our rights of freedom, but we have those who are willing to give it up because they believe our founding fathers were inept and couldn’t imagine the technology of today. Yet, through the last two hundred plus years our countrymen and women have fought and died for our constitutional rights, because they could envision the threats of servitude and autocracy. Our founding fathers looked forward for us, the benefactors, as they penned the Constitution.

    Frank E. Vincent

    Militias are more important today than at any time in the past 50 years,

    in 2007 the national guard was transferred from state control to federal control.
    the state governor has to petition the feds for emergency use of the national guard.

    SO, the true militia of today is comprised of the citizen soldier that is not federally owned.

    we have today race riots, illegal aliens in arizona taking over entire areas (government response has been to post highway signs saying the area is dangerous due to illegal activities). we have union mob violence. we have the threat of UN troops enforcing agenda 21, we have several federal agencies overextending their authority, we have the president dismantling the constitution by executive order. And looking at recent history we have the battle of Athens, Tennessee in 1946. a fight against corruption and voter fraud,

    There are two things wrong with this article, and this sentiment of using arms to resist tyrannical government. The proper way to change government policies is through the political process. I realize that’s getting more and more difficult to do. However, only a fool looks forward to the day when this or that law or policy is overturned by neighborhoods barricading themselves and shooting at police cars. Which leads to my second point, namely that “they” outgun and out-man us by nearly an infinite margin. Sure, you can scare off a couple of patrol cars but you’ll be blown to smithereens within hours. And should you survive you can look forward to getting the crap kicked out of you before your life sentence or execution is administered. Has nobody seen the SWAT atrocities on YouTube? This is definitely not Canada.

  • VNEVET56

    I think it time we start looking at the Dick Act of 1902, particularly when dealing with the 2nd Amendment (REGULATIONS FOR THE ORGANIZED MILITIA UNDER THE CONSTITUTION AND THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES).. According to that the Militia is defined as “…every able bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45″ and will be organized as ” the organized Militia, also called the National Guard or by such other
    designations as may be given them by the laws of the respective States or Territories…the remaining to be known as the Reserve Militia.” (http://ia600404.us.archive.org/26/items/cu31924030724896/cu31924030724896.pdf)

    This particular piece of legislation codifies what the founders intended when they crafted the 2nd Amendment; that all citizens should be armed and should not have their rights to do so infringed (or blocked, impeded etc). The founders also didn’t specify the type of “arms” so as to not give the government leeway in deciding what the people could posses in terms of weaponry. Any bans coming forth, and most existing “gun control laws” are in direct contradiction of the intent of this law and the 2nd Amendment. Obama and his Liberal-Progressives had better understand they have just about pushed the American people too far.

  • ErnieDavidson

    The term ‘militia’ has gotten so much negative press that it’s almost taboo to speak it. The militia is a constitutional means for We the People to protect our families and communities and if the Federal government foolishly proceeds with gun registration, which will most assuredly lead to confiscation, it will be the militias of the several States that will keep guns in the hands of citizens where they belong.

    This sort of proves that non-Americans, including Piss Morgan and the Kenyan, do not and perhaps cannot understand our history and culture OR the constitution. The militia is all citizens who are not mentally incompetent or felons. Well regulated doesn’t mean “controlled by the gummint”, it means they practice with their firearms often enough to hit what they aim at.

    DON’T EVEN THINK, BAD THOUGHTS ABOUT GAYS AND FEMARXISTS, PIGS!

    “RADICAL FEMINISM IS TOTALITARIAN BECAUSE IT DENIES THE INDIVIDUAL A PRIVATE SPACE; EVERY PRIVATE THOUGHT AND ACTION IS PUBLIC AND, THEREFORE, POLITICAL[^],” writes Bork.  “The party or the movement claims the right to control every aspect of life.”[4] Daphne Patai also perceives this hostility to privacy.  Feminism today, in its erasure of the boundaries between public and private, is writing a new chapter in the dystopian tradition of surveillance and unfreedom,” she observes, “…whereby one’s every gesture, every thought, is exposed to the judgement of one’s fellow citizens.”[5]

      Most of you Atheist_Libertarians, seem to hate children as much as the Femarxists do.»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»

      Child abuse hysteria targets both men and women, as we have seen.  Yet most accusations are leveled against fathers in divorce cases.  The irony is that it is easily demonstrable that child abuse is almost entirely a product of feminism itself and its welfare bureaucracies. 

      The growth of child abuse coincides directly with the rise of single-mother homes which are the setting for almost all of it.  Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) figures demonstrate that children in single-parent households are at much higher risk for physical violence and sexual molestation than those living in two-parent homes.[53]
        A British study found that children are up to thirty-three times more likely to be abused in single-mother homes than in intact families.[54]

    I lived in Florida when Jimmy Carter was President and released Cuban Prisoners from the prisons. These were bad guys. Our crime rate went up. I lived in a subdivision of 23 homes, 21 of which had been broken into at least once in 1 year and others more than that. We worked together, some carried, some didn’t, and we let people know when they came in to our subdivision that they were seen by a wave, or whatever. We were not militant but we did our job of letting people know that they were seen and license plate numbers were taken. In one year our robbery rate went down to zero. The other subdivsions by us, wouldn’t work together and their crime rate went up. Diligence is the only way to keep our neighborhoods and country safe.

    The Facist governments that required gun registration, then confiscated their weapons, such as what Hitler did, did not do so to protect their people.

    I do think that it is interesting that all of a sudden we are having all of these catastrophes.

    The 2nd Amendment is stating that the right of citizens to keep and bear arms is derived from the Declarations reference to ‘certain rights’ within the spirit of self protections mandated by the Declaration Of Independence, which pays recognition to God ordained sence of self preservation instilled in all mankind. No science can refute the existance of self preservation. Some have said the 2nd Amendment is their concealed carry permit which is true, however, the reality of it is that both the Declaration and Constitution are one’s weapons ownership permit.

    Also, the 2nd Amendment is an equal opportunity law.

    Lastly, the 2nd demands that a ‘militia’, any malitia, is made up of U.S. citizens from all walks of life and occupations who’s primary function is to insure that the citizenry have the right to keep and bear arms entirely without infringement by law or by oppressive alienating tax against weaponry.

    Is it a militia’s job to arm it’s citizens too? I don’t know. Maybe, if it can afford to.

    I’m not entirely convinced it was any of these alleged shooters they show us on the Media!!! That Aurora alleged shooter looks like someone drugged him up with something and maybe planted him there with the Real Shooter (read Provocateur) to Start a False Flag Agenda!!!
