“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
National Security objectives? Like mandatory service for all youths? Gun confiscation? Stopping “preppers” from “hoarding?” Making sure tha Obama’s transistion to a dictator is smooth? Why do we need these thugs when we have the National Guard?
After all, let us remember that it was DHS that bought a few million rounds of .40cal for their Gestapo agents. I wonder what they plan to use that and their armored cars for? Why do they need barred windows with firing holes? It is starting to make more sense why white males were left off of Lord Barry’s Constituency Checklist and why DHS calls white males, especially veterans, as a threat group. How long before these Hitler, Obama Youth are working with the UN to “help” us?
Once again Obama and his minons simply bypass standing law, The Dick (don’t get excited Ivan, it’s not the kind of dick you like) Act of 1902 of which the highlights are:
“The Dick Act of 1902 also known as the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws. It also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities. The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia, henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and District of Columbia, the unorganized militia and the regular army. The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45.”
Note: Going back to early American Law, all members of the unorganized militia have the right to keep and bear arms of any type, under the Second Amendment, and own as many as they can afford to buy. In fact in early America, State Governments often issued weaponry to those who could not afford it and then they had to “work” it off.
BTW libs, before you spout off that the militia is the National Guard, etc, etc, ad nauseum, do note:
“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American…[T]he 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.”–Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.”
Deal with Obomunists.
