Martial Law

"The exercise of government and control by military authorities over the civilian population of a designated territory."

The Federal government has only once imposed Marshal Law. That was at some point during the U.S. Civil War. Several States have done this on rare occasions.

Considering the uneasiness in this country over the past few years, I am wondering what your thoughts are should things get REALLY out of whack in the U.S.? I deem this as extremely unlikely, but some may think otherwise. We are a very opinionated group around here. I think it would prove enlightening to see what the poll bars show as well as comments.

Thanks and vote, please.

    What disturbs me is the apparent civil unrest as well as terrorists events over seas. All LE agencies have been put on guard regarding the July 4th holiday . . . big time. I seem to notice that something is going to happen around these parts. I'm kind of just waiting. And no, I haven't changed my carrying habits.

    We have roving bands attacking white men, women and children all over the country with the media covering it up. We have major groups calling for the extermination of Whites. We have imported over a million potential terrorists intentionally. We have borders where thousands from anywhere with any intention can cross in a day. The groundwork is laid. Once the Government bans lawful firearms and rounds up many of the violators it will be the Pax Obama.

    And just what army is going to attempt this? Where are the numbers? Where are the majority of weapons? Where is the bulk of skill at arms? Clue: NOT in the hands of the Federal government - which can hardly be considered an organized being with only one goal.

    I think that the chances are very slim (less than 25%), but I do think that the possibility is there.

    25% or less is what I voted, but here's the part that'll make heads spin: If it's done, it will be national...and it won't be a democrat doing it.
