My first blog http://daveduringer.blogspot.com/ narrates what happened on a night i will never forget, serving on the border with the California Minutemen in 2005. That was a great group of guys (multi-racial, lots of vets) though because of the risk and what i saw with another group, i decided not to continue. Still a good thing overall, but you may want to keep my experience in mind, in case you decide to participate in response to an alert such as the one below just issued by Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in AZ. Be careful out there, and know the people in your group:
This operation will not be for the faint of heart.
MCDC volunteers will work under an entirely different SOP; we will approach our duty as citizens as we should – we have a zero tolerance for any and all violations of our border and we will forcefully engage, detain, and defend our lives and country from the criminals who trample over our culture and laws.
Long arms will be allowed and frankly, encouraged. From the surveillance videos we have gathered in the field over the past six months it is more than evident the violators of our borders seem to have been given carte blanc permission to willfully violate our public safety. This time we will not be tempered by political correctness; every single individual we encounter WILL BE apprehended by Border Patrol with our help – even those who dare enter our country armed will be stopped and challenged. Political correctness is a fad of the past. This is for the survival of this great Republic!
Basic SOP changes will be as follows.
You are strongly recommended to bring a long arm – you will be permitted to carry long arms at all times on post as per Arizona State law. Thousands of individuals violate our borders 24/7 with the consent of President Barack Hussein Obama, Janet Napolitano and John McCain – you are strongly encouraged to exercise your rights and duty as an American citizen to carry a long arm and if challenged use it to defend the United States of America – something Obama, Napolitano and McCain refuse to do.
