Robert K writes: Good afternoon! Writing from TN to let you know that we are with you and praying for the patriots of VA.

Friend of Dagny writes:
Hank,
I like the idea of RFVA V E R Y much: good call.
I’ll be brief -Do understand that this e-mail should be ‘heard’ as if you & I were taking around a campfire, united in goal, with differening views and experience. We are allies and perhaps eventually we will be friends. We are discussing thoughts to recover our stolen freedoms and perhaps even advance from there.
— My Thoughts —
It is imperative that you focus on team building and expansion. Many layers coherent make strong societies. It is unnecessary and destructive to -with the one hand- ‘dis’ your fellow patriots, their gains, and growing momentum. As an older man, old soldier & etc. the trust required among our various layers is being damaged because of your repeating the neo-Bolshivieks’ talking points ; stating that these 95 2A Sanctuary resolutions are ‘just a show of intent… with no teeth’ how useless they are & etc. THEY ( the communist media ) are saying that. You are (knowingly or not) undercutting your fellow Virginians when you repeat it.
Here is why I am concerned about what I heard from RFVA today. Communism views all war as psycho-political. Whether bullets, proposed bills or broadcasts, their intent is to make resistance crumble, destroy the will to resist and perhaps to sway some to their side. I’m, certain that you know this. Your comments to our sworn peace officers and citizens who have put OUR true names and hence careers and families on the line are heard as demeaning and divisive. This citizens’ tsunami, with our legitimate local governments taking the lead, has never been seen in recent history.
HR: My views on Law Enforcement: Any disdain I might project towards LEO’s is what society has turned them into and that is in a lot of ways revenue generators for the state. I know that nobody got into law enforcement did so in order to write tickets and make money for the state, but that is what it has become in large part. and I also have a real problem with anyone, politicians, cops, etc, that have “special privileges”. Want an SBR, Machine Gun, Grenade launcher, supressor, without the tax stamp and long waiting period? Be a police officer. Nobody that serves us should have access to the things I can’t readily get, and certainly not at my expense. Yet you need to understand that it is the “boys in blue” or the feds in suits that will be the ones that throw the first patriots in jail, unless they (as they should) exercise selective enforcement, if and when these bad bills are passed. My view is that shiney badges do not give you special rights. That said I have an enormous amount of respect for the job that police officers do. It’s hard. Long hours. Shift’s that suck. People that suck. Domestic abuse, Suicides, Drugs. all make for a tough job.
I strongly suggest that you choose to specifically >build< layer-upon layer by ADDING your input to the layers brought by others. Don’t strip things bare and begin again, and for goodness sake; we need your help to accelerate this momentum! Nehamiah did not tear the walls of Jerusalem down and start from bare dirt – no time for that. He and the former exiles BUILT as fast as they could, THEN improved upon the old design, AFTER the city perimeter was secure. Sure they they bickered, but they did it as WE should, quietly behind the walls, so that the enemies can not exploit any perceived divisions.
How firm a foundation… build ON it, in cooperation with what you think is a better general improvement. Implement your improvements (Like RFVA) and let’s keep this moving.
HR: I don’t think I was tearing down any walls. I would encourage you to listen to last weeks episode again. And see the amazing job that has been done. 5 more counties passed resolutions and that brings us up to 100. If by wanting these resolutions to be stronger and have more patriots stepping up and forming and joining militias is “tearing down” then I can’t help that.
Praise in public and punish in private.
Dagny says ‘Hi’.
HR: Sorry but stupid must be called out. I’ll try to be selective but it’s bad policy not getting called out that brought us the NFA (national firearms act) and all the restrictions we now face and live under. It’s the NRA willing to comprommise, and patriots not willing to call them out on it that has us constantly backed into a corner. What you are seeing is a movement of patriots across Virginia that has finally said NO MORE!
Dagny is great! Hi back.

Shout out to JR from Guns and Gadgets for turning me onto this nonsense:
The views of the rural Virginians described in the Nov. 24 front-page article “In Virginia, gun buffs plan to defy new laws” are that the gun-control proposals expected to be introduced in the 2020 Virginia legislature will “change” their way of life and that a law enforcement officer who believes a law to be unconstitutional may choose not to enforce it. Both assertions are dishonest and factually incorrect.
Assume that the expected laws would limit the number of guns sold and the capacity of magazines, and require registration and add a “red-flag” law. I know some people grow up with rifles for hunting and handguns for protection. But semiautomatic weapons are not part of that way of life. That technology did not exist when the Second Amendment was adopted; indeed, rifling in the barrels of guns to improve the distance and accuracy of a shot was not widespread. Hunting and self-defense do not require that level of lethality. As for registration, the Second Amendment begins with “a well regulated militia.” If one was to be part of a militia with a gun, the authorities needed to know who owned what guns.
Also, no law enforcement officer is given the right to determine what actions are or are not constitutional. Officers enforce the law. The lawyers for their jurisdictions may question those laws and challenge those laws in court, but they have no legal right not to enforce a law validly existing on the books.
The way-of-life argument is bogus and not supportive of the obligations we, as citizens of the commonwealth of Virginia, owe to each other.
David Yaffe, Arlington

HOW TO FORM A MILITIA:
build a group. Don’t just grab guys that can fog a mirror. Plenty of people have gotten into trouble and this doesn’t help anyone when they let some fed informant rat into their tribe. Maybe start with just 5 guys(ladies are welcome too)
Get training. Meet monthly or bimonthly. Get or lease or borrow some land that you can train on.
For training if you can’t all go to a school/class/etc then choose one of your group that is a great communicator who you think can teach and all chip in to send them.
Training is important.
Max Velocity Tactical – WV
Valor Ridge – TN
Appleseed – VA and elsewhere
Expect to attract attention if you get too big. So don’t get big. Team up occasionally but stay small.
I’d love to see the militia movement flourish. I think the county boards calling up the militia would make this a certainty. Till then build your tribe.
