Government’s Attack On Citizen Militias Is An Oblique Attack On The 2nd Amendment


Shadow Government

New York – -( In treating citizen militia groups as domestic terrorist organizations, this tyrannical Government has created a false chimera to delude the public about these groups. This sham Government intends to springboard off its attack on militia groups to target tens of millions of gun owners. For it is indeed the armed citizenry—this citizen army—that does serve as a threat to a Tyrant, as well that citizen army should.

The dire situation facing the Nation today is the inverse of one that prompted one legal scholar and military officer to write over twenty years ago—

“In 1998, Americans were exposed to the specter of martial law in the form of a hit movie, ‘The Siege.’ The movie vividly depicted the aftermath of a terrorist attack on New York City where the government declared martial law and rounded up thousands of Arab-Americans and put them in internment camps. Unfortunately, some time in the future, life may imitate art and America’s experience with martial law may extend outside the movie theater into reality. It seems obvious that a number of anti-American groups exist both within and without our borders that would not hesitate to employ terrorism and other tactics that could result in upheaval and, perhaps, anarchy within our country.

The circumstances that would prompt a declaration of martial law are so horrendous that they are almost beyond contemplation. But that dreadful eventuality should not translate into a lack of preparation, for if the nation is prepared, it is less likely to fear even the most awful possibilities. Those who worry about the profound legal, moral and social implications of declaring martial law must seriously contemplate Thomas Jefferson’s insightful words:

‘A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means . . . The officer who is called to act on this superior ground, does indeed risk himself on the justice of the controlling powers of the Constitution, and his station makes it his duty to incur that risk . . . . The line of discrimination between cases may be difficult; but the good officer is bound to draw it at his own peril, and throw himself on the justice of his country and the rectitude of his motives.’” “The Imposition of Martial Law In The United States,” 49 A.F. L. Rev. 67, (2000), by Major Kirk L. Davies, Chief of Operations Law in the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, 16th Air Force, Aviano AB, Italy.

Necessity and Self-Preservation inform Thomas Jefferson’s consideration that, perhaps, the U.S. Constitution might, in theory, one day, need be suspended if the threat to the continued existence of the Country as a free Constitutional Republic were sufficiently severe.

On this score, Jefferson is absolutely, catastrophically wrong! If the Government IS the Tyrant, it has no lawful basis for existence.

Under no circumstances is suspension of the Constitution ever warranted. For that would mean, suspension of the Bill of Rights—It is anathema because it is the sovereign authority of the people in whom the Country as a free Constitutional Republic exists. Suspension of the Constitution/Bill of Rights IS tantamount to self-immolation—Suicide!

Suspension of the Nation’s Bill of Rights is tantamount to the destruction of the very Republic that Thomas Jefferson, as cited by the author of the afore-referenced article, seems to talk about preserving. To suggest that a circumstance could arise where the Bill of Rights—including, then, the Second Amendment—can justifiably, rationally, legally, be suspended as a necessary step in securing the Republic is a contradiction in terms.

The Armed Is The Republic. Destroy the Armed Citizenry is equivalent to Destruction of the Republic.

The dire situation facing the Nation today springs from a Government operating contra to the Constitution—a renegade beast—existing for no purpose other than to destroy a free Republic, i.e., to destroy a sovereign American people. Tyranny of Government = Treason By Government.

The American people have no duty to suffer a Government whose very existence is directed to the destruction of a free Constitutional Republic, ergo destruction of the sovereignty of the American people over Government. And in that regard and given the fact that the very presence of this imposter—a senile, corrupt, flaccid, incompetent placeholder of a hidden ruthless force—occupying the Executive Branch of Government, as Chief Executive, is the face of an immense, elaborate and diabolical fraud perpetrated on the American people, the American people have a right and the concomitant responsibility to voice vociferous objection to the inanity observed.

But no armed resistance should be effectuated against this Harris-Biden Administration until or unless the Administration itself initiates action against the American people.

And what kind of action on the part of this sham Government against the people would amount to an act necessitating active resistance? An example would be if the Administration were to issue a state of emergency culminating in the declaration of martial law suspending exercise of the fundamental, natural rights including most specifically, the suspension of the right of dissent against the Government coupled with the nationwide suspension of the right of the citizenry to keep and bear arms. Nothing like that has ever occurred in the history of the Country, not during world wars, nor even during the American Civil War, apart from Lincoln’s declaration of suspension of Habeas Corpus, which was a radical and arguably illegal action on the part of Lincoln’s Government. One would have to go back to the days prior to Nationhood when the British attempted to confiscate the colonists’ arms. This may not have been the singular match that lit the powder keg starting the American War for Independence, but it certainly was one of the major reasons.

See the article titled, “Gun Control and the American Revolution,” by the Second Amendment scholar, David Kopel, published on the website, Guns&Tactics.

The article commences, thus——

“This Article reviews the British gun control program that precipitated the American Revolution: the 1774 import ban on firearms and gunpowder; the 1774-75 confiscations of firearms and gunpowder; and the use of violence to effectuate the confiscations. It was these events that changed a situation of political tension into a shooting war. Each of these British abuses provides insights into the scope of the modern Second Amendment.

Furious at the December 1773 Boston Tea Party, Parliament in 1774 passed the Coercive Acts. The particular provisions of the Coercive Acts were offensive to Americans, but it was the possibility that the British might deploy the army to enforce them that primed many colonists for armed resistance. The Patriots of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, resolved: ‘That in the event of Great Britain attempting to force unjust laws upon us by the strength of arms, our cause we leave to heaven and our rifles.’ A South Carolina newspaper essay, reprinted in Virginia, urged that any law that had to be enforced by the military was necessarily illegitimate.”

See also article in the Morning Call.

The insidious thing about present-day events is that the shadowy forces that seek to destroy this Nation and, hence, the sovereignty of the American people, have deviously, surreptitiously attacked the Nation and its people and the Nation’s Constitution from within.

They have employed corrupt treacherous instruments of tyranny to betray the Nation. Under the pretense of serving the Country and its people by the very fact of being Office-holders, these characters have been betraying the Country and its people, implementing policies, prepared for them by outside, powerful, ruthless elements.

All of these policies are aimed at destroying the Country. Some of these policies can be seen in U.N. compacts and position papers that Congress has never signed onto, such as the Open Borders policies. The policies are inconsistent with U.S. law. The Biden Administration has implemented them anyway. And then blatantly lies about such policies, claiming the Borders are closed. And, yet two million illegal aliens have skipped through our Borders since the Great Imposter, Joe Biden, took Office. And tens, even hundreds, of thousands more, are even now, making their way through Panama to the Southern Boundary of the U.S.

The sole purpose of this Harris-Biden Administration is to serve as a convenient cover for the true powers running the Government. It is they who feed their toady, Biden, and his Cabinet officers and other high-ranking Executive Branch officials with their marching orders—policies and initiatives designed to hobble and destroy a free Republic under the guise of serving it.

But Americans still have a chance to salvage their Country and their sovereignty in whom a free Constitutional Republic resides. And many Americans are waking up to the possibility that all is not lost. Americans can still prevail if they do not allow themselves to be dissuaded by the plethora of false messaging, and continue to hold fast to their faith in themselves, and in the one True God, and in our Nation’s sacred history, heritage, and core Christian values. And above all remain calm, armed, and with the ready abilities to be extremely dangerous.

I am pretty well educated, and a reasonably deep thinker; but this piece is the work of a master. Brilliant!




The GOP is great at VOICING opposition to Marxist rule, but when it comes down to ACTIONS, the GOP SUCKS!


The GOP – small government.
Those basterds talk a good game, but they’ll happily sign off on damn near any spending bill.
Yeah… they suck…. and they SUCK HARD.

Wild Bill

Well … the repubs have been pretty good at sticking together to block all the democrat bills, lately, but I think that you bring up an excellent point: Spending bills often include or at least necessitate more taxation!
And as it has so wisely been observed, ” … the power to tax is the power to destroy.”


Your comment makes no sense


Wow, great article.

Ansel Hazen

Yes, but I’d like to hear more of what the Arbalest Quarrel is doing to convert the opinions of a certain religious group that stupidly votes liberal time and time again. They are a huge voting block that needs to be shown the truth.
It would seem that Roger would be uniquely qualified to go into their houses of worship and show them the error of their ways.

I’m not sure which religious group you are talking about but in OreGONE Portland they support illegal aliens and want to take all the guns off the street and your home and anywhere else. I bet in Portland they probably have made excuses to support non heterosexual relationships and it probably won’t be long and they will support abortion like Rome now does. I can proudly say I am no longer a Lutheran and a firm believer that no one has it right.


Missouri synod?


United in calling for non-violence for resolving differences, not resorting to weapons, Lift Every Voice Oregon, a statewide group of interfaith leaders born out of northeast Portland, have announced the approval of two new ballot titles for proposed laws to help end the epidemic of gun violence. Rev. Dr. W. J. Mark Knutson of Augustana Lutheran Church, announced last week that the group received notice from the Oregon Supreme Court that it approved the ballot titles for both of its initiatives to reduce gun violence and promote safety throughout Oregon, measures 17 and 18. It marks the second attempt by… Read more »


Waiting for approval

Wild Bill

Maybe them, too! I’m thinking ALC.

Wild Bill

It has to be those goofy Lutherans in Minnesota that bring all the aliens to Mpls, St. Cloud, and even little Austin.


Arbalest Quarrel mission has nothing to due with converting any religious group. I suggest you write a article and put yourself out there for comments and suggestions. True Americans support you right to worship as you and your family see fit. The 1% of the population that is so far left is a tool used change the framework of our country.

Roland T. Gunner

True Americans do NOT “support you right to worship as you and your family see fit”. That is a ridiculous twisting and corruption of the intent of our Founding Fathers, and I have it on highest authority that’s not God’s intent. Suffer not the witch, the wiccan, the practiyioner of voudun or santeria, etc. For that matter, suffer not the muslim. Every mosque in the United States, every one, and virtually every mosque in the world, supports terrorism.

Wild Bill

The corruption that you speak of is a vastly interesting legal story! That goes back to a Southern lawyer named Hugo Black. Black hated the Catholic Church. Now, we skip forward to Hugo Black somehow gets on the S. Ct. Not long after up comes the case of Everson v. Board of Education 1947. It seems that in that school district the Catholic kids stayed after school, and got a a little extra Catholic education before going home. It was cheaper and easier to send teachers over to where the kids were rather than getting all the kids over to… Read more »

if you are referring to the Jewish people , I have no idea what would open their eyes.the older generation lived through a hell and somehow the younger ones hear the words and blame the tools, rather than the people that used them. A good friends mother wore long sleeves in florida heat to cover the tattoo she was a child when this was done to her, changed her name to an american sounding name when she immigrated in 1948 one cousin who stayed behind to wait for whatever family remained to return I guess all the survivalists went to… Read more »


Lots of pro firearms Jewish people out there.
It’s sad that there is a block of Jewish people who are anti, but that kind of ignorance is not limited to one race, religion or sex.


Go read some history. What you are seeing is what happened in Germany after WW1 into the 1930s. Debauchery, Child Prostitution and Pornography of the vilest kind!
Not to mention the inflation and the devaluation of the currency!

Roland T. Gunner

Very much so.


The Briden Administration has already initiated actions against Americans. His administration has begun a task force calling Mothers and Fathers domestic terrorist for question public school board members on what they see as a dangerous curriculum for elementary school aged children. Biden initiated actions against Americans who he left behind in Afghanistan this was a treasonous act aiding our enemies in the process . Biden has sent 3000 American troops to the Ukraine in a effort to intimidate Putin. This action will help trigger the Great Reset here in the United States. Biden is not a war time capable president… Read more »


I lived across the street from some russians that were imported to my area and were able to leave Russia because of religious persecution.. They got free food, free health care, free furniture, one free car and what really pissed me off was they had two acres and they claimed they wanted to have a farm and the government bought them a brand-new shiny John Deere tractor. The kids worked under the table, one of them at a chop shop down the street I think and when I talked to the dad about how well he was doing he told… Read more »


people hate the truth, the cubans that com to miami get so much free sh.t wtf never before has such stupidity been done. no generation was given more than a handshake and pat on the back for luck.


well if you rigged an election you could get more votes than there are people

Roland T. Gunner

And we have seen the Democrat party do exactly that.
