Armed And Determined, Civilians Look To Prevent Another Chattanooga

MANCHESTER, N.H. — As parents shopped for baby clothes and children played arcade games at stores in an indistinct strip mall here, some 10 heavily armed civilians stood outside the military recruitment center, guarding the recruiters inside.

Hundreds of miles away in Hixson, Tenn., two men sat in folding chairs, one with a .40-caliber handgun on his hip, guarding a recruiting center just miles away from the two military sites where a gunman opened fire last week, killing four Marines and a Navy petty officer at a training center.

Across the country, from New Hampshire to Washington State, armed civilians could be seen standing at recruitment centers in similar fashion.

“We felt that if our government wasn’t going to protect our men and women of the military at these locations, we felt it was our duty,” said Stevie D, 48, an off-duty sheriff’s deputy who stood outside an armed services recruitment center here on Tuesday with several others, including one man who carried an AR-15 style assault rifle that, he said, he had made himself.

Mr. D — who has legally changed his last name to a single letter — was armed with a .556-caliber battle rifle and a .45-caliber pistol, and had ammunition strapped to his chest.

For the military, the armed civilians create a dilemma: While it is nice to be appreciated, recruiters rely on the openness and accessibility of storefronts to reach potential recruits, and the presence of armed civilians can be intimidating.

Oath Keepers Merchandise

  1. Yet, notice that the corporate owned media had to slip this in

    “The Oath Keepers, which is sometimes described as a citizen militia, took up armed positions on rooftops in Ferguson, Mo., after the Michael Brown killing.”

    But I did notice that they do NOT refer to Oath Keepers as how the Oath Keepers are organized, instead trying to put the “Militia” (bad word today) label. Nor did they refer to the US Constitution which REQUIRES the Militia of the several states and REQUIRES that those that serve within our governments use ONLY the Militia for

    – Enforcing the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
    – Enforcing and keeping the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
    – Protecting the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
    – “to suppressing Insurrections and repelling Invasions”.

    The US Constitution guarantees to each state its own “Republican form of government”. It is every state’s Militia that is the ONLY Constitutionally assigned force to “counter Invasions” and “Domestic Violence” within our nation.

    Richard Henry Lee: “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves …”

    George Mason, Co-author of the Second Amendment: “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few public officials. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.

    Tenche Cox said this below BECAUSE those who serve within our governments were FORBIDDEN to create a standing (permanent) military and a governmental professional law enforcement. Since they did it anyway, look at it this way, IF all military and LE’s quit following the orders of Traitors there would be quite a Militia as the US Constitution REQUIRES, and they would have the training to do the Militia’s constitutionally assigned duties and actually save the US Constitution to which they are bound before anything else, Americans, and the USA in a lawful manner.

    Tench Coxe: “Who are the militia? are they not ourselves. Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. THEIR SWORDS, AND EVERY OTHER TERRIBLE IMPLEMENT OF THE SOLDIER, ARE THE BIRTH-RIGHT OF AN AMERICAN…The unlimited power of the sword is NOT IN THE HANDS OF EITHER THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENTS BUT, WHERE I TRUST IN GOD IT WILL EVER REMAIN, IN THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE.”

    Anyway, Great job Oathkeepers who are guarding the recruitment centers! Stay safe!

    Again all, I did actually believe this was another false flag, and I was wrong! I am sorry.

    God Bless!

  2. “For the military, the armed civilians create a dilemma: While it is nice to be appreciated, recruiters rely on the openness and accessibility of storefronts to reach potential recruits, and the presence of armed civilians can be intimidating.”

    I doubt that. Sounds like a statement from a politico. That’s like saying someone does no banking because they have armed guards inside. Ludicrous.
