Virginia’s Bedford County Second Amendment supporters organized a militia muster call to recruit able-bodied volunteers to defend the rights and liberties of the citizens. According to organizers, the purpose of the militia is to preserve peace, tranquility, and civil order in case the militia is required to defend citizens’ rights and liberties. Saturday marked the day of enrollment which will usher the next steps of the militia activity.
The invitation targeted able-bodied residents between the ages of 16-55 years. In addition, the volunteers must provide their names and contacts in case they are needed. The organizers convinced the participants that the state would not have access to the list of the recruits. In addition, volunteers must pass the requirements of owning a firearm under the existing state laws. They were also required to possess an unloaded firearm, which was in good condition and preferably any variant of the AR-15 rifle. The rifles were selected because they are “suitable for militia” service, according to the organizers.
The muster was to serve as a historic event demonstrating the resolve of Bedford County residents in defending their rights and resisting tyranny. It was also supposed to demonstrate their resolve to secure their liberties acquired through the blood of Virginians. Residents from neighboring counties were also allowed to attend but were required to indicate non-resident status. Those unable to own firearms or pass the physical fitness test would act in a supporting capacity.
A similar event had taken place in Campbell county. The string of militia muster calls in Virginia was because of the various unpopular and unconstitutional laws passed by Dems in Virginia infringing on citizens' rights to legally own firearms. Ninety-one out of 95 counties have adopted second amendment resolutions to ignore orders enforcing such laws.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
