Gunco Patriots and Oath Keepers PTP Lists
Stewart Rhodes, Founder and national President of Oath Keepers, has issued a clarification for all members and supporters regarding our Operation Protect The Protectors.
He began that article with this paragraph —
Our Operation Protect the Protectors has been a phenomenal success nationwide, with many Oath Keepers in every state answering the call, and we have seen other groups and individuals also step up, in true American spirit, to do likewise. The response from the recruiters, from the local police, and the local communities has been overwhelmingly positive. They are grateful and touched by our willingness to take a stand in defense of our current serving military who are not being allowed to arm up in self defense even after the horrific terrorist attack in Chattanooga, TN. And by doing so, we are making long overdue connections in our local community that will pay important dividends as we work hard to get our communities better prepared for whatever is to come.
Several days ago Stewart found a list of news articles about Americans of all stripes volunteering to stand watch over military recruitment centers around the nation. Many of them are not Oath Keepers, but are Patriots who saw the need to protect our defenseless recruiters and stepped up to help guard their recruitment centers. That list, posted by “Black Blade”, is at Gunco’s forum, here —
Our Operation Protect The Protectors has moved many to do likewise in response to the glaring need for security. To Gunco’s list below I have added specific Oath Keepers who have made the news and revealed the public’s overwhelming support for their gesture of protecting our protectors who have been disarmed, have been prevented from carrying their own personal defense weapons. We now can see on the public record that, at the local level, Americans appreciate good Americans stepping up to guard the defenseless recruiting stations. Some Governors are stepping up and calling for changes. Citizens all over America are being supportive of those volunteering to stand guard to prevent another Chattanooga-like incident of terrorism.
We may also note that local news stations are reflecting their viewers’ sentiments on this, while the national media/press is harping the Federal government’s disapproval of what we’re doing. Think on that for a moment, yes?
These recruiters are military men and women who have all received the best gun-handling training available in the U.S. military, yet because of “political correctness” they are forbidden the right to be armed while on duty. That strikes me as shameful treatment of our military. In my mind it brings up a question about “why” all Americans are not going around armed, as our forefathers did. I lament that the absence of arms-bearing Americans all over the place is a far cry from the customs of the people who founded this nation of States. Worse, I note that along with the absence from “proper society” of openly carried firearms (with the exceptions of some States, like Montana, where “open carry” is still common if not pervasive), we today also see an absence of personal dignity. Yes, personal dignity has waned from our culture in parallel measures matching the gradual loss of personal responsibility and the basics of self-governance. As Lao Tzu once (reportedly) said, “When mankind lost sight of the way to live, came codes of law and order“.
And so we have lost much, especially since the Dick Act of 1903. America needs to reclaim her heritage. Our nation’s founders brought their guns to Church on Sundays. They took their arms wherever they went, and modern-day Americans should be expected to do likewise. No “law” or statute or code or rule to the contrary can be Constitutional. I am greatly encouraged to see Americans stepping up with their arms to provide security where the government has failed.
The Gunco list makes a fine salute for Patriots across America, so I have replicated their list but have followed their list with a list of specific Oath Keepers, for readers here. Gunco’s list precedes our new additions posted below, so scroll down to see reports about Oath Keepers around the nation. As more news stories come in I will edit them into this article.
But I must add one thing — a new current is now moving across the nation, unseen. That move is to take the PTP program “covert”. Think about that, eh? There are a lot more Patriots ready to stand up for America, without talking to the news stations or revealing their presence, as daily the face of government is revealed more and more. God bless America.
