Trained Citizen Soldiers...the Way it Was...the Way it Should Be

With budget cuts and Law Enforcement layoffs, the need for trained armed citizens is more relevant now than ever. All one needs to do, is take a look at the cities where the law abiding citizens have been disarmed, such as D.C. and Chicago, and the problem becomes crystal clear.

City looks to make gun ownership mandatory


One police officer patrols Nelson, Georgia for eight hours during the day. That leaves 16 hours overnight when the city is basically unguarded. "When he's not here we rely on county sheriffs--however it takes a while for them to get here," said Nelson City Councilman Duane Cronic. That's why Cronic proposed the ordinance. "Every head of household will own and maintain a firearm," he said. Bill McNiff lives in Nelson, carries a pistol and supports the law. "I think every city should do it. I think it should go countywide too," McNiff said. The Nelson ordinance is modeled closely after the 1982 law passed in Kennesaw.  

Kennesaw Georgia is another fine example, of taking personal responsibility for one's self defense. As many of the readers know, citizens have no personal right to protection by the government as the supreme court has ruled. 

It is Gun Shy's opinion, that America in its early formative years in the old West once had it figured out, and men who posessed the pioneer spirit carried a side arm and a rifle. We need to act on the lessons that Israel and Switzerland have learned, and make every able trained American, a citizen soldier that can mobilize instantly when trouble rears its ugly head.
