Oath Keepers founder, Stewart Rhodes is in Virginia training counties on how to form local militias. Has the gun-grabbing left awakened a Constitutional giant?

“The Congress shall have Power To …provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions….”
ARTICLE I, SECTION 8, CLAUSE 15
The idea of a Militia is not new. In fact, it was written into our Founding Documents.
Over the years, however, the idea of forming a militia, or in some cases even uttering the word, has been stigmatized to the point of absurdity.
It seemed for a time that every fringe group who had a beef with one form of corrupt governance or another were members of some kind of “militia.”
The pinnacle of the stigmatization being the alleged militia involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.
It should surprise no one that the ruling class would want to squash, and even attempt to criminalize, the idea of a militia.
Anything that takes power from them and puts it in the hands of the people is simply repulsive to their very nature. And, of course, they must try to stop it.
Recently, however, the incessant desire by the left to take our lawful firearms has sparked new interest in the Constitution, the Second Amendment and more specifically, the idea of a Constitutional Militia.
Stewart Rhodes, founder of Oath Keepers, is a fellow who always runs towards tyranny and mobilizes for action.
The recent threat of gun confiscation in Virginia has, once again, put Rhodes and his nationwide group, Oath Keepers, squarely inside the “belly of the beast.”
Stewart Rhodes is known for being a “man of action” and his presence in Virginia this time around is no different, as Rhodes is already networking with rural law enforcement to help form local, Constitutional militias.
Stewart was gracious enough to join me for an interview from Richmond, Virginia recently, the result of which can be accessed below.
