Letter Re: Drawing the Line on Noncompliance with Unconstitutional Laws

…advice) that is not required to be registered, well at least not yet. Yes, we do plan on moving but are unable to do so before these unconstitutional laws take effect. So, please consider the legal issues many will have to deal with if caught with these “now” illegal weapons before offering advise that may well get them thrown in jail for years for not bowing down to the state. We Citizens already have enough to worry about living in these Progressive hell holes. Thank you sir for your time. – Kenneth B. JWR Replies:  You are correct. Drawing the line on noncompliance is a personal decision that cannot be dictated by an outsider. My apologies for speaking in absolutes, from the perspective of someone who lives in a relatively free state. There are indeed a variety of viable strategies for noncompliance with unconstitutional laws. For many, the best solution…




The Mathematics of Countering Tyranny

…that number is increasing by nearly 2 million per year. (More than half of which are AR-15 or AR-10 clones.) Again looking at the Military Age Male population (men, ages 16-49) of 59,764,677, that equates to roughly one semi-auto rifle for every three Military Age Males.   If a production and importation ban requiring registration were enacted, there would surely be massive noncompliance. For example, the registration schemes enacted in the past two decades in Australia, Canada, The Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil, and the States of California and New York have been well-documented failures. They have been met with noncompliance rates ranging from 50% to 90%. Even with an optimistic 50% registration compliance rate, that would mean only 10 million of the nation’s 20 million semi-auto rifles would have a current name and address attached, to allow eventual gun confiscation.   Let us surmise that following several years of a registration…




The “Reasonable” Dictators of D.C.

…have one sure solution: Massive Noncompliance to any unconstitutional Federal laws. If we quite vocally Just Say No to Tyranny, then they cannot prosecute and incarcerate us all. This worked in overturning the Fugitive Slave Laws. And more recently, it happed with marijuana laws. Clearly, the six-decade-long “War on Drugs” morphed into a war on civil liberty. Nearly everyone could see that. Huge segments of the population thumbed their noses at marijuana laws and simply ignored them. They just carried on with their lives the way that they wanted to, and flouted the Federal law. However, the nation’s prisons are still chock full of people who did little more than simply buy and sell marijuana. This has contributed to the U.S. having the highest incarceration rate in the world. (655 people per 100,000, at last report.) Many of those convictions were at the Federal level. But meanwhile, at the State…




Preparing for the Inevitable American Gun Ban- Part 2, by Rector

…Ship those LEO’s to Bubba’s Appalachian back yard? Good luck. They would quit in droves. In the US there are only about 1.2 million LEO’s. Most are in urban areas. Once you get past the smog, the ratio of police to gun owners drastically changes. If even the smallest number of gun owners decide to shoot, they would be wiped out, and they know this.

El Duderino While I agree with most of the article, how can you explain the noncompliance in Connecticut, New York, and elsewhere? missourisam The most important gun safety action is to teach your children and grandchildren to respect guns, and to teach them just what a gun will do.

On Irish Democracy – Part 2, by Born Free

(Continued from Part 1. This concludes the article.) As I stated in Part I, I favor massive non-compliance at every level possible without landing myself in jail. This approach calls for the “Gray Man”, “Going Galt”, and true to my heritage, “Irish democracy”. The important characteristics of such intent is to not organize, to not be heard or seen, and to not seek to massively disrupt the status quo. It’s all underground, under the surface, like small tremors that can’t be attributed to a particular earthquake fault line or dormant volcano. Think of it, if you will, as undiscovered termites or carpenter ants chomping away on a wooden house. The wooden house being our severely corrupted government, that without remedy will fail, collapse under the weight of it’s own rottenness. First, what do I mean by “massive noncompliance”? I personally do not wish to run afoul of law enforcement or…




Are You Ready For Societal Winter?

…meet ‘impossible’ diversity targets. Incremental Tyranny Just consider how socialists operate: by incrementalism. Here is their time-proven game plan in a nutshell: “Good ideas” morph into “suggestions”, then “guidelines”, then “targets”, and finally into “mandates” with penalties for noncompliance. The busybodies and do-gooders have already instituted a myriad of laws and taxes, and yet surprisingly there hasn’t been a revolt. They won’t stop adding more laws, new taxes, increased monitoring/surveillance, higher fines/penalties, more licenses, more permit inspections, additional fees, and new reparations to the point that they dictate just about every aspect of our lives. It is as if they want to turn America into an enormous Homeowner’s Association (HOA). It is all about control and power — and they want every bit of it. We are facing a very cold Societal Winter, indeed. Nothing cuts to the bone quite like the icy gaze of someone in a position of…




Why We Need Our Guns, by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

noncompliance to laws requiring surrender or registration of assault weapons has occurred in California, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, and elsewhere. Congress passed an assault-weapons ban in 1994 that lasted for a decade. The original assault-weapons ban protected Americans from being shot with rifles that included features such as grenade launchers, bayonet lugs, or other detailing whose primary impact was to fuel the phobias of gun haters. Shortly after the 1994 ban was passed, a Washington Post editorial admitted, ‘Assault weapons play a part in only a small percentage of crime. The provision is mainly symbolic; its virtue will be if it turns out to be, as hoped, a stepping stone to broader gun control.’ Post columnist Charles Krauthammer, in an article headlined, ‘Disarm the Citizenry. But Not Yet,’ explained the ‘real logic of the ban”: ‘Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public…




A North American Holocaust? – Part 2, by SaraSue

…demonizing what I call “Middle America”: People who believe in self-direction, independence, freedom to defend one’s life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Yes, we regular folks who just want to be left alone have been targeted, and continue to be targeted, by a very evil spirit sweeping the nation. We can blame any number of people and institutions. The fact remains that we are in perilous times and we must fight back. At this time, our primary method is to fight back with noncompliance and noncooperation, forming our own underground in which to buy and sell. A stout refusal to go along to get along is required. I know the day is coming when we will have to take up arms and we must be ready in our hearts and minds, as well as in our preparations. We’ve got to face facts, as they show themselves, and not fantasize about…




Live Not by Lies – Part 2, by Born Free

…title before reading his book, but apparently, he interviewed Americans who grew up under Communism, retelling what they are seeing in America, and also quotes Solzhenitsyn. We should all probably read this book – I’m reading it now. GOING ALONG TO GET ALONG? My biggest point is: going along to get along is not going to work for you if the globalists have their way. We must stand now, not creep in the shadows avoiding conflict, standing for nothing but our own self-preservation. I very much admire self-preservation, but not by acquiescing to lies. If it’s a lie, call it out, on every front! I’ve written here before, advocating for “Going Galt”, “Irish Democracy”, general wholesale noncompliance with unConstitutional laws, and throwing as much sand in the gears of the State as we possibly can. But, I wanted to ensure that we all reflect upon what it means if we…




Nice Guys Go To The Gulag

…Our behavior must be driven by Biblical standards — not by what is “now-accepted” or “popular”. We must press on, despite being demonetized and de-platformed. We must stop “moderating” our positions, for the sake of appearances, attaboys, or decorum. We must coordinate a campaign of massive noncompliance with unconstitutional laws. We must establish home-based businesses, and trade amongst ourselves — preferably with constitutional silver currency — and starve the beast. We must fully withdraw ourselves from their Orewelian social media platforms and instead establish and support alternate media platforms — such as FrankSpeech. We must consolidate geographically to redoubts — to survive and thrive in the dark days to come. We must guard our children against evil influences, through homeschooling. We must arm and armor ourselves and draw the line in the sand of never “papering” (registering), or surrendering our guns, ammunition, full-capacity magazines, night vision gear, body armor, and…

American Liberty at the Crossroads: Do We Sit By and Watch, or Do We Show Up and Fight?

…itself voluntarily monitored 24/7, agreed to centralized background checks just to exercise a Constitutional right, that has agreed to being either fondled or x-rayed by blue glove-wearing half-wits at airports. With our own tax dollars (annually self-assessed, of course) we have equipped an army of steroid-pumped henchmen who are ready, willing, and able to not just Taser us at the slightest sign of noncompliance, but even willing to arrest and drag us to a hospital for multiple rectal examinations because of the mere suspicion that we “might be hiding something.” Unless we individually and collectively develop some backbone, right quick, then it will be too late. The chains will be too solidly forged. The web of surveillance will be too complete. And the cross-correlated list of malcontents will be small and easy to round up.

Does America Need to Build New Misprison Prisons?

You may have heard about the BHO administration regime’s expanded “Insider Threat Program,” which amplifies Executive Order 13587, published back in 2011. After a brief flurry of media attention earlier this month, this has been thoroughly soft-pedaled. (“Nothing to see here, move along.”) But these new policies have been laid down and the penalties for noncompliance have been established. Without an act of Congress, these policies are now effective. Rather than re-hash the details, I will quote the first part of a well-written McClatchy News Service article: “In an initiative aimed at rooting out future leakers and other security violators, President Barack Obama has ordered federal employees to report suspicious actions of their colleagues based on behavioral profiling techniques that are not scientifically proven to work, according to experts and government documents. The techniques are a key pillar of the Insider Threat Program, an unprecedented government-wide crackdown under which millions…
