FReeper Display of Arms and Bearers *2015/12 Thread*
Self | 12/1/15 | Red Fox

Posted on 12/01/2015 9:37:50 AM PST by conservativeimage.com

Civil disobedience with guns. (Please read entire post before commenting.) Preppers unite! Stand alone preppers will be easily neutralized by fascist or violent forces. For example, look at this prep list from CheaperThanDirt.com. Can you see what's missing?

A: Strength in numbers. This strategy of remaining underground in your own country will be fatal. If you wait until they come before you organize, you're dead. The success of the Bundy Ranch standoff (the Federal Government backing off without one shot fired) is proof of concept - the power of a community armed and unwavering will succeed against overreaching powers. United We Stand / Divided We Fall.

What would it be like if the disarmament task force knocks on your door, then looks over their shoulders to see your neighbors arriving en masse to protect your right to bear arms? And how will you create a neighborhood like that if you don't start meeting each other now? It is time for civil disobedience. It is time to meet with other lawful citizens and develop action plans to defend each other's rights, property and territory.

The pen is mightier than the sword. It is not guns, but words that are our most powerful weapons. And if a picture is worth a thousand words then a deluge of photos, videos and online chatter of armed preppers uniting could be enough to stop SHTF. The executive administration is routinely acting beyond the constraints of it's power enacting subversive regulations illegally and encouraging descent and division in our society. The legislative branch is doing nothing to stop the centralization of power or remove those from office who have put their agenda before their oaths to protect and defend the constitution. The U.S. military is unequipped and inexperienced in taking action in these matters despite the oaths that they have taken. We've run out of time. We are done waiting for somebody to do something. FReeper Display of Arms and Bearers is sending fascists of all kind a message. You can't control nature. Self defense is a right given by nature, not the government. We are armed. We are training. We will defend each other.

HOW FREEPER DISPLAY OF ARMS AND BEARERS WORKS:

Commit to visit your firing range once a month. Take pictures and videos and post results here on the first of each month as a form of civil disobedience. Use this thread to network and coordinate target practice with other Freepers through private email. If you can not upload pictures and videos, email them to FReeper Display of Arms and Bearers @ ConservativeImage.com (no spaces) and I will host them for you. If you want your photos scrubbed or photoshopped to prevent tracking, email them to me and I will print screen copy them and delete the originals. To receive a monthly reminder, ask below to be added to this ping list.

RULES:

- Do not publish personal information such as last names, email addresses, phone numbers, license plates, home addresses, etc. Use private email to arrange meetings with other members. Posting first name and general location is acceptable.

- This is not a jokes board. You will not be censored, but please be aware there is a world wide misperception that American gun owners are all drunk, reckless and violent. Disprove this stereotype by contributing to this monthly thread with all seriousness and sobriety. Do not horseplay with guns.

- Do not use targets that could be perceived by viewers as a threat to a living person or group.

- One month recent photo only. Please try to date stamp for the record.

- Selfies are good. Larger group photos are better and send a stronger message.

- If you want to keep your identity or specific weapon make unknown, then only photograph your target results noting distance and general weapon type - rifle, handgun, bow and arrow, sling shot, etc.

- A deadly weapon may only be used to prevent the loss of life, property or for the purposes of target practice or hunting. Do not pull that weapon unless you intend deadly harm. The brandishment of a firearm is neither a determent or a valid threat.

Example:

Arm yourselves. The hopes and changes are coming.

WHO WE ARE:

We don't fire first. The one who shoots first loses. We are calm. The aggressor is tense. The aggressor uses excessive force. We use that excessive force against them. This is accomplished strategically through the implementation of audio/video surveillance and distributing proof of aggression to the World Wide Web or through courier.

We are not anti-government, we are anti-fascist. Government is not fascist as prescribed by the United States Constitution to be regulated by the people. We are not rebels or a militia because we network with our neighbors to target practice and prepare ahead of a crisis, we are responsible, self supporting citizens. We do not need a leader. Each of us is guided individually from within by universal common sense.

We back the badge. As lawful citizens we would sooner trust our law officers rather than those who blur ethical lines and offer gifts with strings attached. We are not creating a new society. We are reclaiming original law. We are not violent, we are intolerant of violence and theft.

Future development to include guiding principles of lawful gun ownership, civil alert systems and myth busting arguments. But for now, here are my muzzle flashes from my latest practice.

This makes sense. Get to know your neighbors. Set up personal mutual assistance networks. There is probably someone on your block who will need help say, shoveling snow this winter or such like. Establish an informal Local Emergency Response Team. Be a LERT; the world needs more LERTs.

A good way to start a LERT is to first organize known clubs and incorporate them such as CERT, ham radio club, poker club (that's how we got ours started), EMT classes, and especially VOAD (volunteer organizations assisting in disaster) such as the Red Cross, Baptist Men with Chainsaws, Methodist UMCOR, etc.

Our Disaster Response Trailer let our church community talk about how to protect our congregation and our local neighborhood. We had only 2 ham radio operators out of thousands of congregants, now we have a couple of hundred.

I'm sorry, well-intentioned as it may - I totally agree with all the good citizen words in the pitch - be there's not no way no how that I'm posting a pitcha online of myself shooting.

For the same reason that I don't do facebook or any of that other social media stuff, I choose to remain inconspicuous. I'm a Grey Man, in age, appearance and in my lifestyle. I'm accepting enough visibility just by posting here at FR and certain other forums.

I could consider posting a dated target with my screenname, but my (portly sexagenarian) face? Thanks but no thanks, not for me.

"Never been in a gunfight, eh?

Yeah, that statement kind of stood out. Under specific circumstances, if you are not willing to shoot first, good chances are you will end up being "good" and dead. But hey, at least you maintained your moral superiority. Right?

Get to know your neighbors

The majority of my neighbors are liberal 0bama voting assholes, and I'm not sure about the others.

I have a neighborhood map with the neighbors marked as Obama-voters, possibly decent people, or decent people. In any awkward situation, I would assume that neighbors who supported Obama ever, without sincerely repenting long before now, are evil and a threat to my family. Fortunately, I know who might be trustworthy too. Teamwork matters - if you have the right team.

Guns scare me, glad I lost all mine, so no way I could post a pic showing one.

I only use my guns for peaceful purposes, like this nice holiday display. It's kind of like turning them into plowshares but not as permanent.

I really need to redo that picture now that I have 5 Garands, added an IHC and H&R since it was taken.

When I use the phrase “I don’t fire first” it’s a means of disabling anti-gun activist’s argument that a gun carrier is a threat. “The one who shoots first loses” is a matter of public optics and strategy. Sorry you don’t understand these things.

I can blank out any means of photo identification and upload it for you or email it back for your approval.

If you live in a liberal neighborhood, would you consider moving somewhere more useful to you? What circumstances would have to change for you to accept the hassle of relocating?

Totally missed that. Thanks.

I've fired first ALOT....and still alive. Those that hit "firstest" with the "mostest" the fastest and the hardest usually win both fist fights and gun fights.

Could you show a picture of one of them being used correctly? Otherwise it deters from the message we’re sending here. Like the 12ga shell lights. That’s clever.

Unless one is perpetually prepared to relocate, moving does no good. Neighborhoods change, and frankly I'd rather not have to worry about what's downrange.
