How to Start and Run a Militia according to Militia News

This is a great article I am sharing from Militia News- click the link above. I think some of the points made , if followed, would go a long way in helping some members of militia groups stop the petty infighting that is distracting us from our goals of protecting our families and friends while upholding the Constitution and preserving our rights. Some of the definitions given for usurpers fits some people I have seen disrupting the Militia movement to a tee. According to an online dictionary ‘a usurper is an illegitimate or controversial claimant to power, often but not always in a monarchy. This may include a person who succeeds in establishing himself as a monarch without inheriting the throne or any other person exercising authority unconstitutionally. It may also be applied to an official acting outside his authority or jurisdiction.’

It is imperative that we plan and prepare and if anyone is preventing you or your group from accomplishing those goals, remove the distraction or remove yourself from the group permitting the distraction and go about the business at hand. Our lives and most certainly our liberty may well depend on your diligence and focus on the mission. Carry on.

A Word Study on the 2nd Amendment

A well regulated militia, in my opinion based on numerous articles that I have read and various scholars interpretations of the 2nd Amendment based on the context and language it was written in, simply means a good and organized group of citizens that are willing to defend their homes, families, neighborhoods, states and country against a threat of any measure to their safety or freedom.

being necessary to the security- In my opinion, the word ‘being’ can be taken as an absolute, as in ‘is’. A well regulated militia, is necessary to the security of a free state. I take ‘necessary’ to mean needed, required or obligated. ‘Security’ to me, means secure or safe.

of a free state- ‘free’ indicates unbound by oppression or tyranny. ‘State’, based on the context of the Constitution refers to the individual states as represented by the citizen’s militia. 

the right of the people- The word ‘right’ to me indicates that the forthcoming statement is a freedom belonging to me as one of the ‘people’, and the ‘people’ are simply the citizen’s of the state and country. 

to keep and bear arms- to me, this statement means I can ‘keep’, hold and have in my possession, buy and own, ‘arms’, which are weapons, namely firearms, with which to defend myself, my family and my rights. 

shall not be infringed- ‘shall not be’ I also take as an absolute- as in ‘will not’ or ‘can not’ and ‘infringed’ means imposed upon, changed or taken away. Inalienable. 

 

The 2nd Amendment, written by the United States of America’s founding fathers, tells me that as a citizen, I am the militia, and that my role in the militia is necessary to ensure my own freedom and the freedoms afforded my state and country as well. That I have the right to own a firearm, that I have the right to bear it, or carry it and that that right shall not be taken away. Period.
