Democrat politicians in Virginia have threatened to sick the National Guard on law enforcement who refuse unconstitutional orders to confiscate firearms.
One anonymous National Guardsman wrote an op/ed in Law Enforcement Today last week proclaiming that he and his fellow military personnel would refuse orders from Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam and Democrat leaders in the state to tread upon the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
The anonymous guardsman took Democrat Congressman Donald McEachin to task in his op/ed for making the following statement: “And ultimately, I’m not the governor, but the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law. That’s his call, because I don’t know how serious these counties are and how severe the violations of law will be. But that’s obviously an option he has.”
The guardsman gave the ignorant Congressman a little history lesson:
“Mr. McEachin, have you ever heard of a little thing called the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878? Apparently, you are not.
Allow me to fill you in.
The purpose of the act is to limit the military branches from enforcing laws against US. citizens. While the PCA does not prevent a governor from calling the Virginia National Guard, the law enforcement capacity of the Guard while on state active duty is full-scale enforcement of martial law when local law enforcement can no longer maintain civilian control.
Are you listening Mr. McEachin? If Governor Northam were to call up the National Guard, it would be through enacting martial law.
Since you are so slow in understanding, allow me to explain further.
Martial law is the imposition of direct military control of normal civilian functions by a government, especially in response to a temporary emergency such as invasion or major disaster, or in an occupied territory.
Sheriffs and police chiefs refusing to go against the Constitution to fulfill your stupid anti-gun drivel hardly constitutes a temporary emergency.
If you and your fellow Constitution-hating hacks continue to push an agenda of gun banning, forfeiture and confiscation, I can almost assure you that you might meet more than one requirement for enacting martial law.
If you force local law enforcement to start violating peoples 2nd Amendment rights by taking their guns, you will wind up with temporary emergency due to an occupied territory.
There are people who will dig in. They will fortify their habitations. They will stand firm in their resolution to exercise their un-infringed right. And it will get ugly.”
The guardsman also dressed down another enemy of the Constitution. He called out Democrat Congressman Gerry Connolly for demanding law enforcement personnel to resign if they were unwilling to violate the 2nd Amendment.
“I would hope they either resign in good conscience, because they cannot uphold the law which they are sworn to uphold, or they’re prosecuted for failure to fulfill their oath. The law is the law. If that becomes the law, you don’t have a choice, not if you’re a sworn officer of the law,” Connolly said.
He called out Connolly’s sniveling hypocrisy:
“I wonder if he sees the irony of his statement.
If the state deems that it should enact martial law because sheriff’s, whose only “crime” is standing up for the Constitution, here is what it looks like.
The state Constitution would be suspended. So would habeas corpus and civil rights.
There would be no freedom of the press, assembly or speech.
Curfews would be enforced on the people.
Troops would be in the streets for enforcement.
Checkpoints would be set up for control.
The Guard would have the ability to hold a person without charge.
Imprisonment without representation or due process.
Seeing that we are talking about gun control, there would be warrantless, house to house confiscation of firearms, ammunition, food supplies.
I have to wonder if this is really what Democratic leaders in Virginia want. Because what it equates to is a tyrannical government using its military as ‘enforcers.’
And that is exactly what the 2nd Amendment was created to protect against.
If the Virginia legislators want to push this issue, it could get ugly.
And oh, by the way, plan on seeing the vast majority of the Virginia National Guard become Conscientious Objectors. It will be really hard for them to arrest cops and confiscate guns when none of them will carry the necessary arms to enforce said arrests and confiscations.
How do I know this? I am one of them and will be one of the first to lay down my gun and walk away.
I will not be a pawn in a tyrannical game of human chess. Neither will most of the men and women I serve with.”
Gov. Northam may not realize the can of worms he is opening with his proposed enforcement of unconstitutional gun control. The boogaloo may be starting sooner rather than later with the ill-conceived power grabs of these tyrannical Democrat usurpers.
