One LEO’s reply.
I’ve been a policeman for nearly 30 years. I’ve been at FR for over 10 years. I was on our SWAT team for 15 years.
And I’ve been keeping tabs on the take over of our country for about 25 years.
Being in the trenches on the police dept. and with the battles of good cop/bad cop on FR I have done a lot of reflecting, planning and communicating.
I have reflected on my role as a police officer. Having a strong belief in an afterlife which includes eternal reward or punishment, I have endeavored to remain as faithful as I can to my belief in Jesus Christ. Not only did I take an oath (twice) to uphold the Constitution, I took another, more important oath to be a faithful son of the Catholic Church. Not a salad bar Christian, a REAL Christian.
The realization that we are now at the precipice has caused me to have a talk with my spouse regarding the possibility of armed conflict. I have lost sleep, shed a few tears and begun to prepare myself and my family.
I have come to the conclusion that critical choices lay ahead for all of us, not just law enforcement.
Is there any doubt, watching this last election, that we in America have come to a crossroads? Is there any doubt that we will all have to choose which side we are going to stand on? In my mind there is no doubt, it is time to choose because there is a communist in the White House and communists surround and advise him.
Recess is over.
I have observed and talked to officers on my dept. I’d say 1/3 of them believe in America as founded. 1/3 are all for Obama and 1/3 are indifferent.
I have had arguments with those on the other side. Heated arguments. There is no doubt in my mind they will side with him when the time comes.
BUT. And it’s a big but. Other than being anti-gun, they are not gun people. They will not be willing to die to take guns. Most of them are not tactically minded. Most of them are salad bar Christians. They are lock-step union democrats and only do this for a job and a pension. They are not carnivores.
The indifferent 1/3 are the ones that I wonder about. Some of them are tactically minded. Some of them don’t believe in your 2nd amendment rights. They think firearms are for sporting or hunting, nobody should have an AK, etc.
These are the ones I try to plant seeds with.
That leaves the other third. I wonder how many will break and join with the left. They will worry about family, their job, going to jail, all those things we all worry about. The desire to remain armed as a policeman will weigh with them. There is some security in being the praetorian guard. Until the war starts that is.
It’s like possessing the One Ring. Hard to give up.
Here is what I think. The left is in power. They are organized. We are not. We need leaders. We need someone, a former General, or Generals, military people, that we can unite and organize behind.
We need Aragorn. We need Gandalf. We need a Leader to stop the fears of the common man. We need to organize NOW.
What is the saying, We must all hang together or we shall surely all hang separately.
I will take heat for this but I believe it and I’ve heard the Obama administration talk about it. They want to organize with law enforcement heads, Chiefs, etc.
Beware of the IACP. The International Association of Chiefs of Police. I’ve read about many of these big city politician police chiefs. They are IACP members and they are anti gun. Barack Obama was once on the board of one of these agencies. Big union political police chiefs are in Obamas back pocket.
I lastly urge you on FR to do this. You must reach out to LEO’s to join you. Many of them agree with you. Many of them don’t want to take your guns. They are going to be used as pawns to do the dirty work of the elites. You have a chance to stop some of them from going over to the dark side.
We will win if we organize. We need to unmask the enemy.

Sarah in a gun shop. Be still my beating heart!
She’s in her local gun shop! I trust you’ve read Matt’s most excellent, fact filled essay and warning. I’m sending it to family members and friends.
Yes, I have. Good stuff and a timeline checklist of event triggers to gauge personal vigilance by.
Probably beat you to it :)
We need Aragorn. We need Gandalf. We need a Leader to stop the fears of the common man. We need to organize NOW."
Aragorn would have to come from the military (somebody like Matt Bracken).
And Gandalf... could be Ann Barnhardt.
They had best hold these kitchen table discussions sooner rather than later ... and when the time comes to choose, they had best choose wisely.
Ann Barnhardt no doubt is the Lady Galadriel. She may prefer to be the Lady Arwen.
So, directly behind the insane faces of contemporary villains like Loughner, Holmes and Lanza, we see the smirking faces of Stalin, Hitler, and Mao, tyrants who did not murder individual victims by the fives and tens, but entire populations by the tens of millions.And in each case, these national genocides were preceded by gun confiscation that was made possible by national firearms registration laws sold to a gullible population in the name of public safety.
“You start instinctively to limit your movements and contact with people.”
The point of your poignant post!
The insidious result is that the American unity is broken at the core by pitting Americans against each other. Mistrusting your neighbors, acquaintances and coworkers would be followed by your good friends whom you would start asking yourselves, how “GOOD” are they?
That would progress through a communist dictatorship staple; REPORTING your friends, neighbors, coworkers for financial rewards, protection from “punishment” and appointed in powerful “community” positions by the government security apparatus.
Using our money against us is another double-whammy dictatorship staple. It bankrupt the country by redistributing our taxpayer funds to traitors who are sanctioned by the regime and even won’t have to pay “beloved tax revenue” on this blood money!
For years, we were warned by Americans or residents who lived under tyranny in different parts of the world NOT to elect 0b0z0, precisely because of what’s happening to our beloved Republic in a daily creep.
Unfortunately, what I used to call some misguided 0b0z0 voters, “the 20% of our fellow Americans,” who “ made” a mistake in ‘08 and had the chance to correct it In ‘12, leaving the 30% communists in the dust.
But NOT TO BE, unfortunately. As I said years ago, the hidden and denied “soft” communism of the first 0b0z0 term would turn in the real, in-your-face, harsh communism in a dreaded second term.
Prayers for our beloved Republic and may God protect it.
Bumping article to top again, please read.
The lines are clear to me.
I will never comply with registration, prohibitions on private transfer, or any other law that is repugnant to the Constitution or any of my God given rights.
But let’s be clear.
When the government starts this it is going to be ugly, quickly escalated, and we won’t have an independent media (basically the same as now) or any communication capacity.
They will get the low hanging fruit first then slowly make their way across more challenging territory.
DHS is armed up for a reason.
Live free or die. It’s not easy but it’s simple.
But to die in Christ is gain, so I will have no fear.
This is the reason I absolutely refuse to fly again (except in the case of an extreme emergency, or course.)
I’ve been everywhere I’ve wanted to go foreign, so these days, if I can’t drive there, I won’t go there.
Which in the warped minds of academia means MSNBC = credible; FOX = not credible.
