I’m retired from the United States Army & 100% service connected disabled veteran. Airborne Ranger, trained in a vast variety of Army training schools & Government sponsored covert combat operations.
I am married & father to four grown men & two grown daughters; all with their own families, all live here in Michigan with the exception of one daughter; who lives in Minnesota. We are all law abiding citizens; with no criminal records. We pride ourselves on strong family morals & values. We volunteer in our communities & hospitals alike & believe in giving back to our community & country.
We are Americans by birth & and patriots by choice. We support the constitution & the bill of rights. We are not conspiracy theorists, anti-government, nor are we domestic terrorists, as labeled by many today within the government; pertaining to the second amendment & our right to keep and bear arms. We are all well grounded, with no history of mental illness.
We are preppers by no means, unless you consider the stock piling of weapons & ammunition a prepper. We do stock up on food & water, as well as survival gear, we all hunt & fish. All of us are trained & are quite capable of living off the land; shelter, food & water.
Due to recent events in our nation (Sandy Hook, Aurora Theater, Virginia Tec) just to name the most recent, we are very concerned about our second amendment rights & the current administrations views. By all accounts, it’s more than likely we will see, weapons & magazine bans across the land, not to mention confiscation of selected weapons and ammunition from law abiding Americans.
If in fact we lived in New York, within a year; all my family members would be declared unlawful citizens & labeled criminals; as we would not surrender our firearms (no matter the type) and or our high capacity magazines, nor our semi-automatic pistols or rifles, no matter the type of and or magazine capacity.
To the point of my posting: At that time and point, when the government or state labels us outlaws, we (my family) seek sanctuary with like minded Americans here in Michigan, where we can make a final stand, to protect our rights under the constitution. We do not seek confrontation nor do we wish others harm, unless fired upon, we will however defend ourselves against any unlawful attempt to enforce unconstitutional laws pertaining to the second amendment.
We (our family) are willing to support financially & provide hands on assistance in preparation for such an event, a safe haven if you wish. We are loyal and hard working taxpaying Americans, seeking refuge with other patriots, in the event we become labeled outlaws.
We wish not to offend others with our views & beliefs, we do however seek out, other like minded individuals with land to defend.
Thank you in advance & we look forward to your comments and / or questions.
