Why Is The Military Training in Our Cities?

Recently there have been reports from urban America that the military is doing drills within the city – some reportedly using live-fire and helicopters while others invading schools so that children “know what gun fire sounds like.”

This alarms me. I know the official answer is probably something like “we are training for an overseas operation” but I just don’t buy it. I was in the Army and I know that the Army has a whole school for training how to jump out of a helicopter for an operation – it is called Air Assault School. If the Army already has such schools then it seems logical to believe that they don’t need to train in the city where we all live. After all, isn’t the military supposed to mainly fight foreign enemies?

But let’s just say that they don’t have a school and they must train in the city where we live, shouldn’t we be notified that soldiers will be roaming the streets or flying helicopters past our bedrooms and office cubicles? There is even evidence that in Houston the helicopters were live-firing while flying through the city.

As far as I’m concerned this is wrong. All power in America is vested in the people and if the people don’t posess that right then they cannot cede that power to the government to handle. A government that creates it’s own power is a tyrannical state and no longer a Republic of We The People.

Specifically speaking if I personally opened fire within the city limits I would be held accountable in Arizona for discharging a firearm in the city and I would probably be subsequently visited by the police, beaten by the police, tasered by the police and taken downtown until they firuted out what to do with me. I ask though, how am I supposed to act as a citizen who is uninformed by my government of such training missions? What am I to do if I believe I am being fired upon – am I allowed to return fire in defense?

I don’t know about you but I don’t want to live in a world where there are armed people, regardless of  whether it is an American soldier or a Jihadist soldier, flying around in the sky. This is not the sign of a free land but rather an occupied land.

I am sending off letters to all politicians to see if they know what is going on and to try to get some answers. Below is a copy of my letter that I am sending. Feel free to copy, adjust, and send off to your state and federal politicians.

Mr. <NAME>: 

SUBJECT: MILITARY LIVE FIRE WITHIN CITY LIMITS 

There has been some indication in the news that certain cities across the United States are experiencing live-fire military drills over American cities recently, some of which are conducting live-fire drills. I know this has happened in Miami, Florida, and Houston, Texas. This naturally causes concern and confusion to me, especially if the drill is unbeknownst to me. If I discharged a firearm within the city limits I would be tried under ARS § 13-3107 entitled, “Unlawful discharge of firearms; exceptions; classification; definitions.”

I would like to know the following:

  1. Why are live-fire drills being performed over cities by the United States military?
  2. What will you do to ensure that this does not happen and if it is going to happen that the public is properly notified?
  3. What would be the lawful outcome if a citizen opened return fire in defense of such a drill?

Sincerely,

God help us if we ever have real troops acting against it’s own citizens.

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
