America's Front Lines Of Defense (Op Ed)

A US Supreme Court decision ruled some time ago that Americans have a right to
own guns for self defense. However, self defense was not the founding fathers'
intention.

The second Amendment provides for an armed militia; which are not professional
soldiers, rather, citizen soldiers, e.g. minute men.

Minute men were not intended to be armed with government weapons; rather,
privately owned weapons that they can grab in a moments' notice, and those
weapons have to be suitable for warfare in the event it becomes necessary to
defend America from foreign invasion, e.g. the American Revolutionary War.

Well; if China or Russia should decide to invade America; they won't do so with
shotguns and deer rifles. Professional soldiers will be coming here equipped with
large capacity AK-47's, semi automatic handguns, rocket launchers, mortars, tanks,
artillery, helicopter gunships, and high tech jet aircraft.

Our minute men will be slaughtered should they attempt to defend us without
weapons comparable to theirs.


NOTE: Assault style rifles are not the same as actual assault rifles. Assault style
rifles are not fully automatic; they're semi automatic, i.e. in order to make an
assault style rifle fire successive shots, its trigger must be pulled each time; viz:
one pull, one shot.

FAQ: Doesn't the National Guard fulfill the second Amendment?

A: No.

"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."

National Guardsmen neither keep nor bear their arms. The Guard's weaponry is
typically stored in an armory under lock and key rather than on their persons or in
their homes and cars.

Also the "right" spoken of does not refer to military personnel; it refers to the
people, i.e. the citizenry, viz: civilians.

In addition: neither the police nor the Guard can be everywhere at once. They'll
allocate their resources where they decide will be most urgent, while the remainder
will be on their own. The police might even be ordered to stand down; they've done
it before.

FAQ: Do activists like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and Montana Freemen, etc. qualify
as militia?


A: No.

The second Amendment calls for a well regulated militia.

Webster's defines "regulate" as

1» To govern or direct according to rule

2» To bring under the control of law or constituted authority

3» To make regulations for or concerning

In other words: the militia spoken of in the second Amendment is not supposed to
take the law into its own hands, rather, expected to conduct itself legally, i.e. within
the bounds of the law and subject to higher powers, e.g. mayors, chiefs of police,
governors, Presidents, and ranking U.S. military officers.

In addition, the purpose of the second Amendment's militia is the security of a free
State. In other words: national defense.

Some of the mobs, looters, rioters, occupiers, and protestors I've seen of late have
not been conducting themselves lawfully, nor submissive to higher powers, nor is
their agenda in any way devoted to national defense, i.e. foreign invasion.


NOTE: Cosmetic identifiers like "Social Justice" and "Civil Disobedience" are merely
sophisticated labels for camouflaging what used to be commonly known as mob
rule.

I'm confident that say ~ 100 million Americans with a combination of standard explosives, standard civilian weapons, and with the help of many veterans can think of a way to make an enemy invasion a mess that they will never forget.

- First: The enemy will have to get through our Space force, Airmen, Sailors, Marines, Army, Coast Guard, and National Guard.

- Second: The enemy's mind will be preoccupied as they will not have a country to go back to. It will be obliterated. Nowhere to retreat. food?

- Third: The enemy will have ~ 300 million very angry Americans inventing new ways to slow them down, reduce their forces, and kill any morale.

( In the meantime the enemy will always wonder: Where are those submarines? )
