TTAG commentator William Brown left this underneath our post Charles C. W. Cooke: The AR-15 Is The “Musket of Our Time”:
I am a retired career US Army infantry officer who saw service with the 82nd Airborne Division (The All-American Division) and the 1st Infantry Division (The Big Red One).
My military sources, both on active duty and retired, tell me that the US Govt is stockpiling small arms ammo in many locations throughout the country. I’m also aware that many oaths taken by officers and NCOs on active duty today often have the phrase, “Against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC” removed from the swearing-in. The removal of AND DOMESTIC is to create an officer corps that believes it cannot speak out against domestic terrorism perpetrated by its own government.
I have contacts in both the Air Force and Army who have told me you cannot talk of gun ownership while at work, cannot give your opinion of the goings-on of our government, and all typically attend monthly classes where they’re indoctrinated with the latest politically correct position of the government (trans-gender acceptance is now the big deal and classes are being taught on it).
Worst of all, the buzz around the military is that our government is purposefully stirring up race-relation problems in order to be able to call martial law in order to shut down the polls (i.e. if Trump wins).
I do not own a privately owned weapon of any sort; an antique revolver from 1908 being my only piece. I am, however, due to all of the above, considering purchasing a handgun and a long-arm of some sort. I’m well trained on the AR-15, so might go that route.
I fear for my own welfare, the safety of my wife, and most of all my God-given liberties. I really don’t have any other choice but to get armed and to be prepared when the government I swore allegiance to considers coming after me and my fellow patriots.
I swore allegiance one thing in my oath taken as a 2LT- I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. Notice I did not swear allegiance to any specific government of anti-Constitutionalists; which is who is running this country today. Sic Semper Tyrannis !!
