URGENT! Call To Action in Virginia! We Need Boots on the Ground and Trainers
Oath Keepers and patriots!
Our patriot brothers and sisters in Virginia need our boots on the ground, and they need us to stand shoulder to shoulder with them, as they stand against unconstitutional violations of multiple provisions of the Bill of Rights. We need you to help!
THREE CRITICAL ACTION ITEMS:
1. CRITICAL GUN RIGHTS AND PRO-CONSTITUTION RALLY ON MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 2020:
Virginia gun rights groups and patriots, led by Virginia Citizens Defense League, are assembling for a massive rally in the state capitol of Richmond, VA on Monday, Jan. 20. Go here for info on the rally. All who can make it are urged to attend to lend our voices in support of the rights of the people of Virginia.
It is critical that we have a strong presence at that rally to show our support for the people of Virginia as they stand up for their rights, and as they work to put pressure on their state legislators to honor their oaths by refusing to vote for any legislation that violates the right to keep and bear arms. See below for details on why this is so critical, and what we can do to help.
2. OATH KEEPERS IS SENDING A LEADERSHIP AND TRAINING TEAM TO VIRGINIA TO ASSIST IN ORGANIZING RESISTANCE TO UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACTS AND TO ORGANIZE AND TRAIN ARMED POSSES AND MILITIA.
Oath Keepers national leadership and some of our best trainers are on their way to Virginia to work boots on the ground, starting right after New Years Day, to do all we can to assist in organizing, training, and advising local town and county resistance to the unconstitutional and dangers actions of the Governor. We will stay for the duration, until the work is done! Among our trainers are U.S. Army Special Forces veterans and SWAT law enforcement trainers. They will focus on helping Sheriffs raise and train an official armed posse in each county, under command of the Sheriff, and on organizing, training, and equipping official county militia, under the authority of the county government.
In addition, they will form up and train Spartan Training groups in each county, to bring all patriotic Americans together to train in critical skills so they are a pool of well trained volunteers that constitutional sheriffs and patriotic county officials can call on to assist in time of need, and that can serve as posse and/or militia. See below for details.
WE NEED MORE TRAINERS! If you are an experienced military or law enforcement trainer, please step up and volunteer to help. Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “volunteer military trainer” or “volunteer LEO trainer” in subject line. See below for details.
If you cannot make it in person to volunteer to help organize and train the patriots of Virginia, please donate to support those who can make it.
3. OATH KEEPERS WILL DIRECTLY OUTREACH TO THE VIRGINIA NATIONAL GUARD, STATE POLICE, AND ALL LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT.
We will be directly reaching out toe all levels of military and law enforcement in Virginia that the governor may try to use to enforce his unconstitutional tyranny. We will do so through several different outreach methods and missions. See below for more details and info on how you can help.
Fears, Rhetoric Rise Ahead of Va. Gun Rally on MLK Day
Virginia Democrats’ pledge to pass new state gun laws has sparked a grassroots pro-gun movement expected to draw thousands of activists to a rally this month amid fears the escalating rhetoric could spark violence.
The concern comes in the wake of Democrats taking control of Virginia’s state government last November — and pledging to pass the gun control laws.
That in turn has triggered a grassroots pro-gun movement, with supporters demanding lawmakers pass “second amendment sanctuary” resolutions that promise local governments won’t enforce state gun laws they see as unconstitutional.
Well President Donald Trump has finally weighed in on this subject saying "That's what you get when you elect Democrats".
Now lets see what, (if anything) he does about it. Is there really anything that he CAN do besides make a lot of noise?
Under the separation of powers of the United States there really may not be very much Trump can do, even if he wanted too.
The one real leverage point that the President has is that when the states joined the union they all agreed to be regulated by the US Constitution. They all agreed to abide by those laws written in the Constitution.
Read the 10th Amendment;
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution\, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people".
That means, in reference to the Second Amendment, that the States ARE bound by law to obey that Second Amendment. Whether they agree with it or not.
This question may ultimately be decided by the courts. And the legalities of the specific ban(s) that the Democrats have attempted to impose.
President Trump has already banned the use of "Bumb Stocks", and he has said he was not in favor of suppressors. Second Amendment advocates say that any and all components relating to fire arms or any specific parts of a fire arm are part of that Second Amendment. Banning any specific components or parts of a fire arm is an infringement of and against the Second Amendment.
A ban on ammunition for example is an effective way of rendering that fire arm useless, and as such constitutes a ban on that fire arm. Any potential court case may come down to the question of whether or not a ban on suppressors and high capacity magazines is an infringement against the Second Amendment.
PRO-Gun advocates say YES, it IS an infringement.
Aside from the specific and particular battles over components and parts these guns, Anti-gun bans are a direct violation of the rights of the people. And THAT is what we will get when we elect these kinds of people.
