Hello and welcome
This home page will attempt to explain why firearms and the 2nd amendment are still relevent today and why we are obligated to own, train, and carry firearms as well as train in prepping and camping / backpacking.
The opening line from the US Constitution:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Who commands the unregulated militia and is it separate from the uniformed military? According to the framers, yes.
US Constitution Article 2 Section 2:
The President shall be commander-in-chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States
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.
What is a Well Regulated Militia?
From 10 US Code 313 of title 32:
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are—
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
The US Constitution was written by some very smart men who feared a free-standing Army and knew that an armed population would be the final check on a tyrannical government. The fact is if you are age 17 to 45 and capable of fighting it is your legal responsibly to own and train with firearms, more important it is our duty to the brave men who founded this country. The militia is you, the militia stopped flight 93 from crashing into the White House on 9/11, the militia is America’s last line of defense and our duty as Americans. Every time you go to the range, read a blog like this, prep, go camping or backpacking you are training for the militia. This site is devoted to those in the unorganized militia who want to honor the fallen by exercising your duty under the terms of the constitution. This is a site for patriots, its for you so I hope you enjoy.
