That would be President Obama
Only, with militias, when called up in case of invasion or such.

I tend to trust that our founders had it right. Lack of regulation is anarchy. Over regulation is tyranny.

I read two things on an almost daily basis, the Constitution and the Holy Bible.

There is only one version of the constitution. What part do you not understand about the 2nd amendment?

The plan spins on to the next level to coalescence of the right wing fringe into a groups that is armed ,dangerous ,and way more than slightly criminal.

All of these groups will express delusions of grandeur that will in the end be their undoing when they convince themselves that either they are the law or they are above it.

What these people forget is that either America is one or America is undone.

They are that rip in the fabric of America that must be repaired by force or they will rend America asunder. The south tried it and failed but they left a residue of just enough hate to fester that a new civil war may happen if the new militias are not quelled by crushing them very quickly.

One can only hope that this trend is not taken lightly...............

Get a grip. What they're talking about is a state militia a.k.a. a state defense force, not a private militia (though the people have a right to form private militias as well). Several states already have them, such as Alaska, Vermont, Maine...federal law authorizes them and places them entirely under the control of the state except in cases of invasion, etc., when Congress has the power to call them forth, versus the National Guard which is a federal force with limited state control.

Thank you. I believe that I am right. And I'm willing to fight for it. I will not see the America that I know and love be taken down by radical Marxists.

Why don't we just state the applicable, and go from there:

You may also want to examine the conditions present within the Insurrection Act that necessitate "Service".
