Oath Keepers National Call to Action: Help Us Protect the Future by Standing Guard Outside Schools Nationwide
Oath Keeper Army veteran Mark Cowan Stands Guard Outside Fort Wayne, Indiana High School
Oath Keepers message to the school-children of America: “We Got Your Six.”
Oath Keepers, an association of military, police, fire-fighters and other first-responders, launches “Operation We Got Your Six” to let the children of America know that our well-trained retired police officers and military veterans will protect the kids while they are in school against any madman or terrorist who tries to attack them.
CALL TO ACTION: Oath Keepers, in the wake of the horrific attack on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, it is time to step up nationwide and defend our schools against the threat of mass murder. Enough is enough. We call on you to post up armed outside your local school, as close as the local laws allow, and stand guard in defense of the children of your community.

Oath Keepers National Call to Action Video
Oath Keepers in Indiana, such as the outstanding Army veteran, Mark Cowan, are already standing guard outside schools in their state. Mark has set the example for you to follow, so now it is time for you to also step up and get it done where you live. Mark calls his effort “Operation We Got Your Six” and we are adopting that same name for this national effort. Hat’s off to Mark for leading the way. Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? Let’s roll.

Clearly, as President Trump stated, what should be done is to arm and train the teachers, just as is done in Israel. That would provide the most effective deterrent and the fastest defense, since the teachers and staff are right there with the intended victims, and are already tasked with taking care of the kids.
But until the idiotic laws and policies that demand disarmed teacher zones full of helpless children are changed here in the U.S., we military and police veteran Oath Keepers will fill the void by being as close to the schools as we can be, just as we filled the void by standing guard outside recruiting centers across the nation in the wake of the Chattenooga, TN terror attack when even well trained military recruiters were not allowed to carry firearms for their own defense.
We stood guard over adults who were left unarmed by idiotic policy. How much more of a duty do we have to stand guard over our children while their teachers are left unarmed by idiotic policy? We have a duty under our oath to step up and stand in the gap, by posting outside our schools in every community nationwide, standing guard as close to the schools as the local laws allow, so we are ready and able to be a quick reaction force to decisively stop any mass murderer or terrorist intent on killing children. As we have seen over and over again, the police cannot be everywhere and they also cannot possibly respond fast enough to put an immediate end to the killing. When second count, the police are minutes away.
Be sure to alert local law enforcement of what you will be doing, where you will post outside the school, how to easily identify you (such as with your Oath Keepers shirts and hats and any additional methods of identification you decide on), and also notify the school of your intent. Notice the key word there is “notify,” rather than asking for permission. When it comes to standing outside schools within the limits of the law to defend the lives of our children, you don’t need to ask permission of bureaucrats or politicians. Their Alice-in-Wonderland thinking – insisting on turning our schools into soft target kill boxes full of helpless kids, with disarmed teachers and staff who are not equipped to stop the attack – has created a terrorist’s dream setup on a silver platter.
Stand on your rights and your duty and get it done. Please also stay within the law, such as being only as close to the school as state and federal law allows (each state is different, so be sure you know the local rules) so as to deny our anti-gun/ anti-veteran/ anti-cop politically motivated leftist enemies an easy way to shut you down or even try to prosecute you for doing the right thing. The same goes for whether to be armed with a handgun or a long arm, and whether to go open carry or concealed. Know your local laws and use your own best judgment on what is the best method and posture for you to use in your local community.
President Trump recently declared that he would have run into that school even if unarmed to try to stop the killing. That’s the spirit! We who are trained and equipped to do it right have the highest duty, and the highest honor, of stepping in between the children and evil incarnate.
As we said in Army Airborne, the time has come to stand up, hook up, and shuffle to the door. Let’s get it done. If not us, then who? We must lead the way.
For the Republic,
Founder of Oath Keepers
PS- We will post up more details on our advice on how to most effectively coordinate with local law enforcement and how to best secure the schools. Our experienced LEO and special warfare veterans will lead the way in providing that advice. Note that we also call on you to do all you can to influence a change in Federal, state and local laws, and in your local school administration policies to allow well trained military and police veterans to serve as armed volunteers inside the schools, and to also allow the teachers and school staff to get trained and then carry concealed handguns inside the school. And then you will need to train those teachers and school staff members. Time to fix this.
