With the growing encroachment on our 2nd Amendment Right to maintain the ability to resist tyrannical government, I think this post is well timed. Do with it as you will:
I was once sitting at a biker’s bar with some friends. We got into a conversation about how it will be impossible to resist the government when they move to disarm the nation and take over. One of the younger folks at our table said we could not resist because we couldn’t even organize ourselves, let alone learn to fight effectively.
When this young man said those words, I stood up, raised my voice, and things went a little like this from that point:
Me: “Hey! This kid says we won’t be able to resist a government take over because the People can’t organize in time to resist them. How many of you here were in the military?”
Biker: (this guy was BIG). “Who said that?”
Me: “This young man right here” (I point to the guy at our table).
Biker: (turns to look around the bar) “How many officers we got here?” (a couple hands went up).
“NCO’s?” (a half dozen hands went up).
(The biker looked around at everyone else and said) “The rest of you are privates. Fall in and do what these men tell you to do.”
(Then he looked at the young man with my table and said) “We’re formed. Any more dumb questions?”
Folks, this is how easy it is to form a militia. It just takes a group of people who are serious about organizing and fighting for their rights. The rest has already been done.
NOTE TO FORMER MILITARY: I do not discount your rank, but, if and when the time comes, you vets who were in the Air Force and the Navy need to remember that we’re talking small unit tactics here. While you may out rank them, Most your brothers and sisters from the Army and Marines in your local group are going to have had training and experience far better suited to the mission at hand than you did. Remember that. Use their skills appropriately. It may be that some field promotions will be in order.
Sir! The Militia is formed!
