Why militia in Superior land?
We must stand vigilant
"Today we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom." John F. Kennedy
The right to bear arms is endowed to the citizens of the State of Michigan in our Constitution and the Constitution of the United States of America.
Our founding fathers knew the reason for a "well regulated militia" was to protect our way of life from forces both foreign and domestic seeking to usurp that freedom from the people..
A "well regulated Militia" is one that has the training and skills to do what is necessary to defend our freedom, loved ones and our property.
It is with this in mind that we gather freely together all who may be dedicated to this defense of liberty. In this open gathering we will exchange ideas to learn; survival techniques, defensive weapons skills, organizational and communication training and studying the foundations of our Republic.
We live in turbulent times and must prepare ourselves as "modern minute men", to unite in the defense of our freedoms and lands. Should a calamitous event such as a natural disaster, enemy or solar EMP attack or the collapse of our social system with the collapse of our National economy occur we will stand strong together.
We must be ready to take action in our own defense, not depend upon some Government agency to step in and help the unprepared people. There may not be that option and quite frankly we will depend upon ourselves and not the Government to maintain order and aid our fellow citizens.
Citizens of Michigan's Upper Peninsula we call upon you to look to the future and be prepared. If you are interested in helping us to prepare for possible upcoming events join us and learn how to aid yourself, your families and your neighbors.
