Who were the Minutemen of the American Revolutionary era? They were not soldiers; they were ordinary citizens; farmers, tradesmen, shopkeepers and so forth. They were called Minutemen because, at a signal, which might have been a Church bell, a shot or a shout, they would drop whatever they were doing wherever they were, arm themselves and form up on the village green to face any local, state or national emergency head-on.
They all armed themselves with the very best military assault weapons they could afford. Additional weapons, shot and powder were kept in village arsenals, including canons with ball and grapeshot.
And who were they, definitively? They were every able bodied man between the ages of 16 and 60, as described in the Gun Control page. That was the "official" definition, but women, boys and girls who were able to shoot, ride, march and so forth were always involved, of their own free will. After all, it was home and hearth that was at risk. Families defended home and hearth, and each other, with their very lives.
When the Revolutionary War (which, by the way, was also America's first Civil War) was won, the well armed Militia was on the minds of the framers of the Constitution. The whole reason for the Second Amendment in the Bill Of Rights was to keep an armed Militia always at the ready. It's an important part of the "American Idea" of our unique in all the world principle of Rule By Law.
American government is government of the people by the people. Government is supposed to be temporary; citizens are supposed to take turns holding government office. Only the law, centered on the supreme law of the Constitution, is in any sense permanent. Government is supposed to be a part-time job, not a livelihood or a lucrative career. As Jefferson himself said, government is supposed to represent the people, and fear the people, both.
That is what is lost on most of the American electorate today, because of almost a century of progressively stronger and stronger unconstitutional and thus illegal gun control laws.
Remember, in pre-revolution America many villages required the carrying of guns to Church and other public gatherings in case of Indian attack. And in post-revolution America, a 1792 federal law required every man eligible for militia service to own a gun and ammunition suitable for military application, and to report for regular inspection of the condition of his weaponry.
The Communist "World Revolution" having failed to incite the American "proletariat" to revolt, and failed to really get off the ground in a global way, Communism has adopted the more insidious, conspiratorial and treacherous stratagems of Marxism-Leninism and Cultural Marxism to infiltrate nations and get inside their organizations, management and politics to turn them against themselves.
The Democrat Party created the Confederate States and started and fought the American Civil War against the USA in reaction to the American abolition-of-slavery movement. Now, allowed to continue to exist and hold political power, the old Democrat Party has morphed into the anti-American and pro-Communist Marxocrat Party we see today, sponsoring the open borders movement, the BLM and Antifa local insurrections, attacks on all demonized bourgeios American middle-class commerce and employment, handicapping of local police, unleashing and protecting criminals, sanctuary cities and, essentially, the end of rule-of-law and the end of the USA as Constituted.
The antidote to all of that Marxocrat Party nonsense is quite simple. The simple declaration by a Congress or a President that every gun control law in America, whether federal, state or local, is unconstitutional and therefore null and no law. All three coequal branches of American government hold equal interpretive authority over the Constitution, which is written in simple English and thus quite self-interpreting. It means what it says. The Constitution nowhere grants any special interpretive authority over itself to any of the three coequal branches it establishes. Each must know the Constitution to fulfill its Constitutional role in government.
And the Court has amply demonstrated it's opposition to that rule in "legislating" faux Constitutional "rights" to commit abortion, for sodomites to marry, for governments to restrict Christian prayer and monuments, etc., despite Article One Section Eight and despite the First Amendment. The Supreme Court has shown its own opposition to any restrictions on itself to be found in the Constitution that created it.
Eliminate all gun control laws? Wouldn't that return us to the old wild west?
Yes, but the old wild west wasn't as wild as the streets of Marxocrat Party controlled cities and areas today. The actual crime rate was a lot lower, except for the ongoing tit-for-tat undercover wars between the Northern carpet-baggers and the Southern KKK, comprised mostly of Civil War veterans from both sides with a chip on their shoulder.
It was out of this period of war-induced hatred and vengeance that the KKK arose as a wing of the Democrat Party. Southern Civil war veterans, as 'rebels' were prohibited from voting or holding office, and thus, were totally unrepresented, and even opposed, by their government, per 14th Amendment.
The real reason it eventually settled down was that the people were armed. Criminals could only go so far in their criminality without getting themselves shot. The citizenry didn't depend on the local law so much as they depended on themselves and their neighbors. Criminality back then was a game of extreme caution.
Eleven Democrat Party run states joined the Confederacy against America, but note well that it was the state governments, not all of the state citizenry, who went Confederate. The requirements of joining the Confederacy were that a state had to be a slave state, it had to politically and legally oppose abolition, and it had to agree to allow professional slave-catchers to cross their state lines to hunt down runaway slaves and drag them back to their owners.
The whole country was split on this, including whole state populations. Virginia was split into two states over it, giving birth to the new abolitionist state of West Virginia. The Baptist Church was split over it, giving birth to the pro-slavery Southern Baptist Church. Robert E. Lee was torn and tortured over it, being a West Point graduate, a lover of the Constitution, but also, a native of his beloved Virginia. Allegiance to his state of Virginia won out over his allegiance to America, because his home, his family and his neighbors were all at risk once a war began.
War, you see, is indiscriminate in who it kills or what it destroys.
Many a Southerner who never owned a slave went to war simply because his home state was at war. And it was the same way in the North.
Today the lines are less distinct, because no whole state, with the possible exceptions of New York, California and Illinois, is ready to go all out against the rest of the nation, and you may safely bet that a majority of the populations of those states do not support their own current governments.
The battle lines are drawn more around cities and urban areas of states rather than states. The Marxocrat Party's BLM and Antifa street thugs have amply demonstrated their willingness and ability to take over significant areas of Bourgeois commerce and hold them against legal authority, acting in concert with Marxocrat political and legal defunding, emasculating and even eliminating local police forces. This could not be happening if it were not instituted, enabled and protected by the whole national Marxocrat Party.
It is a Marxocrat Party political agenda, nothing more and nothing less.
Meanwhile, the Marxocrat federal government is prepping the already corrupted federal police to establish a police state and start confiscating the guns of the law abiding victims of their own instigated crimes. insurrections and takeovers.
Even the Red States have islands of Communism (I mean Marxocratism) such as Austin Texas. Most major American cities and urban areas are under Communist control, politically, jurisdictionally and judicially, with Communist prosecutors and Communist judges operating in Communist courts.
(Does anybody miss McCarthy yet?)
Nullivy and eliminate all unconstitutional and illegal gun control laws on the books, at local, state and federal levels.
We are already armed. We can take care of ourselves.
Before the unconstitutional and illegal establishment of gun control laws it was the criminals who were sneaking around in fear of losing their lives or important body parts. Each gun control law enacted and enforced made the criminals braver and the citizenry more fearful, with good reason.
So the criminals wind up with all the guns and the citizenry is disarmed.
Until a 1931 gun control law, anyone could and did own a Thompson sub-machine gun. After the 1931 automatic weapon ban, only the Mafia and other criminals owned Thompson sub-machine guns.
It didn't work, did it? That's the way it always goes.
Back in 2015 we recommended off duty military to be required to carry concealed weapons, in the Military Concealed Carry page, as another potential check against pop-up Jihad and other terror incidents. Now, we're not so sure about that, since the Marxocrats started homosexualizing the military, and now the Marxocrats are exploiting the 'Woke' perversion of thought and imposing it on the military, as pointed out in Satanic Exploitation.
Anyway, the current (and past) perfect model for the American armed citizen is the Swiss citizen-soldier. Everyone in Switzerland is armed, by law. They have fully automatic weapons, and even crew-served weapons, in their homes, privately owned and operated.
And you don't hear much about robberies or other crimes in Switzerland. It's a very peaceful country.
We keep saying it: we need to reinstitute the old time militia.
The best place to organize it is at the county level, and the best person to direct it is the county Sheriff. The county Sheriff is the only cop in America who is elected by and answers directly to the citizenry who elected him and no one else. He is a man of the people.
It is natural for us to take care of ourselves and our communities.
It is unnatural to not do that.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, or someone just like President Trump if such a person exists, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12

Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
