Arkansas militia, “The Hempstead Rifles”

This article is for those who have not yet contracted away their right to keep and bear arms.
If you have obtained a “Carry Permit” or “Gun Permit” then you have already voluntarily given up your right to bear arms, which will be covered in this article, therefore do not brag to others that you have a “Gun Permit” because you exchanged your right for PERMISSION, therefore contracting away your right.

Pictured below is an Arkansas militia, “The Hempstead Rifles”

Article I section 9.

Most of you know that the second amendment to the occupying governments U.S. CONstitution recognizes the right of the people to keep and bear arms, yet few know our Confederate States Constitutions Article I section 9. recognizes that same right…..

Article I section 9.
“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

We need to understand just what is a “Right”, as in the “Right” to “Keep and bear arms”…….

What is a right?
In Constitutional Law, rights are classified as natural, civil, and political. Natural rights are those that are believed to grow out of the nature of the individual human being and depend on her personality, such as the rights to life, liberty, privacy, and the pursuit of happiness.

What is a Legal right?
A legal right is a claim recognized and delimited by law for the purpose of securing it.

What is a civil right?
The term “civil rights” involves the rights guaranteed to citizens and residents by legislation and by the occupiers U.S. Constitution. Civil rights protected by the occupiers U.S.CONstitution include Freedom of Speech and freedom from certain types of discrimination.

What is a natural right?
Natural law and natural rights follow from the nature of man and the world. We have the right to defend ourselves and our property, because of the kind of animals that we are. True law derives from this right, not from the arbitrary power of the omnipotent state.

What is the first right of man?
Men are born and remain free and equal in rights.

The right to “Keep and bear arms” falls under all of these definitions. Man has the right to defend his life, liberty, and property. Arms, are tools that equalize men in defense of the right to life, liberty, and property.

The Firearm……
“Be not afraid of any man
No matter what his size,
When trouble threatens, call on me
And I will Equalize.”

A primary purpose of civil rights laws is to protect citizens from abuses by government, including police misconduct. Civil rights laws allow attorney fees and compensatory and punitive damages as incentives for injured parties to enforce their rights.
Title 42, of the occupying governments ….”United States Code. Section 1983″ makes it unlawful for anyone acting under the authority of state law to deprive another person of his or her rights under the Constitution.

Now: What does the occupying governments second amendment to their CONstitution state?

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

And: What does “Article I section 9 of our Constitution for The Confederate States of America state?

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Under Title 42, of the occupying governments ….”United States Code. Section 1983″ it is UNLAWFUL for ANYONE acting under authority of “State law” to deprive another person of his or her rights under the occupying governments CONstitution. If one already holds the RIGHT to keep and BEAR arms, and such is recognized as a RIGHT protected under the occupying governments CONstitution, (THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND), then one cannot in REALITY be deprived of HIS, HER RIGHT.

Yet one may voluntarily give up a RIGHT, such as the RIGHT to remain silent under “Miranda”. One is informed that one has the RIGHT to remain silent, yet when one continues to speak, one has voluntarily given up that RIGHT. Such is the same in the case of millions who have obtained a “Carry Permit”, a “Gun Permit”, or a “Conceal and Carry Permit”, in each case one has voluntarily given up his/her right to bear arms by contracting with government via “PERMIT” which is by definition PERMISSION.

Article I, § 10 of the occupying governments CONstitution states…..

No state shall…….”pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts.”


You have the right to contract, as long as such does not infringe on the life, liberty or property of someone else and government cannot weaken or diminish the obligations of that contract.

Government cannot weaken or diminish a contract to which you have entered, hence when one obtains a “Carry Permit” ETC that permit is a contract bearing certain agreements and obligations to which government cannot “IMPAIR” diminish or weaken even though that contract is between the individual and government. What the individual who has obtained a “Permit” / permission has done is entered into a contract with government thereby voluntarily surrendering the right he/she once held by granting jurisdiction to government which government never before held over his/her former right by entering into Universal Commercial Code.

I smile whenever someone proudly states that he/she has a “Gun Permit” and then makes the declaration….
“Out of my cold dead hands.” yet the ignorant individual does not realize that he has already voluntarily given up his RIGHT.

Next time we will discuss…..Article I SECTION 9. Of our Constitution for The Confederate States of America which states…..

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    I have an old email from Dennis Joyce that dates back to about 2009 that I would like to share, and it pertains to this article.

    Why Is The Militia Necessary?

    The First Responder of the People

    1. The Militia is a Constitutional body, comprised of all free persons, or citizens, of the Nation, the government, at any level, cannot destroy because the government is charged with the responsibility, in Article I section 8;

    To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

    To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

    2. In view of the foregoing, the Militia predates the government by more than a hundred years and is, in fact, a governmental body of the people. Just some of the Founders views on the Militia;

    Tenche Coxe: “Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American… [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    Tenche Coxe: “As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.” in “Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution,” under the pseudonym “A Pennsylvanian” in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789.

    Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts: “Whenever governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.” (spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment, I Annals of Congress at 750, August 17, 1789.)

    Alexander Hamilton: “Little more can be aimed at with respect to the people at large than to have them properly armed and equipped.” (Id) {responding to the claim that the militia itself could threaten liberty}” There is something so far-fetched, and so extravagant in the idea of danger of liberty from the militia that one is at a loss whether to treat it with gravity or raillery (mockery). (Id)

    3. It is the only entity constitutionally charged with the enforcement of the laws of the Nation or State when the enforcement agencies of the government, created by statute, cannot, will not, or are forbidden to enforce the laws of the Nation or State.

    4. The people are constitutionally required to be armed, by the government, with military grade weaponry, in order to perform their constitutionally mandated duty to muster, drill, train and serve upon being called.

    5. Local Militias are the logical first responders when properly trained and equipped in the many skills required to mitigate disasters and manmade hazards.

    · Those with chainsaws and other Pioneer Tools (shovels, axes, picks and other hand tools) would serve as Engineering detachments charged with clearing transportation routes as fast as possible to facilitate passage of emergency vehicles.

    · First aid trained Militia would establish collecting points and triage services for the injured prior to transport to more sophisticated medical treatment facilities.

    · Search and rescue trained Militia would, immediately, institute their procedures to protect the living and identify and collect the dead.

    · Militia would patrol affected areas to prevent looting, rioting or other illegal or detrimental activity.

    · Establish emergency shelters and feeding points and provide potable water and sanitation facilities.

    The foregoing is only a small portion of duties that the Militia can and should perform as the Local self-help organization of the people. They coordinate their activities with Local governmental authorities and agencies but are self actuating when those entities collapse or prove ineffectual.

    Government, at all levels, has proven, time and again, they are totally unprepared for any emergency, even when they have a weeks notice of an impending catastrophe. Hurricane Katrina and 911 were the perfect examples. Government eyes disasters as golden opportunities to increase their power over and control of the people.

    The name of the game is CONTROLL, not mitigate misery.
