In the fall of 2008, the 3rd Infantry Division's 1st Brigade was assigned to serve as the on-call federal response force under the control of NORTHCOM, the combatant command assigned responsibility for the continental United States. The brigade remained at its home station of Fort Stewart, Georgia, and "is training to deploy domestically in response to terrorist attacks or other national emergencies." The brigade will be trained in responding to WMD attacks, crowd control, and dealing with civil unrest.
The force was renamed Chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or high-yield explosive Consequence Management Response Force. Its acronym, CCMRF, is pronounced "see-smurf", and the unit is now under the daily control of United States Northern Command's Army North, whose mission is to "protect the United States homeland and support local, state, and federal authorities." It should be noted that the unit is a multi-branch force with Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors and Marines from the four branches of the United States Department of Defense.
Way to go, Dave. Congrats
Let’s hope you are never in the situation where you wished you had had a gun and knew how to use it...those folks in Sandy Hook probably thought they never needed to know how to use one, too.
I used to feel like you do then I moved to the country and then I read stats on how little old ladies get victimized. As I’m getting to the little ole lady stage, I said now’s the time to stop being naive, not be a victim and learn how to use a gun...guns don’t kill, people kill...
That said, I just joined the NRA today, too....cheers!
Any word as to the presence of any survivors of the ‘Bataan Death March’ having been invited to attend, or in attendance, at the meetings? Just askin’.

Matginzac, three cheers to you. NRA needs everyone. Congrats
Wanted: One million gun owners to attend the inauguration of BHO Jan 20 in Washington, DC. Please bring signs that say “Next time we’ll be armed.”
I originally did the same thing - joined the NRA without owning a gun or ever shooting a gun (except a 22 rifle in a ROTC class in college). Then, because I thought it a civic duty, I bought an AR-15 shortly after the assault weapons ban expired in 2004. I owned that gun for about 4 years with no intention of ever shooting it unless I needed to. After having recurring dreams of needing to defend myself but not knowing how to use my gun, I decided to learn. Since then, I have developed a love for going to the range. I still have my AR-15 and have added 3 handguns. I also have a concealed carry permit. I carry a little S&W 380 in my pocket everywhere I go, except for the several killing fields established by law in NC. Unlike the route I took, I recommend that you sign up for a class on how to use a gun, but do it before you buy one. Most ranges have rentals that you can use until you decide what you want to buy.
My friend sometimes wears a Tee shirt that on the front says “I don’t get Mad” and on the back says,”I get more than even!”.
The thing that I know for a fact(2X) is that is not just a boast on a Tee shirt with him.
He stopped a fight one time by hitting the guy, with a galvanized water bucket.
I had headaches for weeks.
Love all Karliner
I quit the NRA in 08 after they supported several Dems over strong Pro 2nd amendment Rupublicans. I’ve been thinking about going back. But, the NRA helped bring this on themselves by trying to be ‘bipartisan’.
Sadly, it won’t work that way. Called a process crime: Federal officer or federally-deputized officers asks a question of you as a person of interest (owner of a gun should do it) and you tell an untruth, i.e. boating accident etc. You are subject to 3-5 in a Fed lockup for the untruth. Don’t believe me, ask Martha Stewart.
What the NRA officials think what was going to come out of the meeting? They were summoned for only two reasons:1. To publically humiliate them. 2. Tour public opinion against them. I bwould have told Biden to go fornicate with himself.
This is because the Dems are morons who don't want to study history, our Constitution or the real numbers to base their policy. They are going for the emotional solution that gets the maximum value from the zero information public. That public is the lowest common denominator that wants Big Brother to "do something"--anything!
The zero information public has been endoctrinated by our schools and our state owned media how to think. This is a public that will not listen to Talk Radio or Fox News because their ideas are set by the indoctrination they already have. This gives them more time to seek life's pleasures, watch American Idol and listen to music on their FM radio. Do not talk politics with them because you are wrong and they are right.
This is the same public that wants these morons of public service to take away cigarettes (because they stink), fireworks (because they make loud noises), 32 oz Slushies (because they don't like to see fat people), the Constitution (because it is too old fashioned) and automobiles (because they cause Global Warming).
The Dems are ever so willing to cater to the legions of indoctrinated busy body nitpickers with policies that panders to their fantasy world on the Unicorn Farm they learned from the government school. By doing so, these morons of public service do one more thing: They punch the ticket of the Marxist agenda that is shaping public opinion through the state owned media as the Obama Syndicate orchestrates the dismantling of America's freedoms.
At least the NRA did not cave and agree to some silly “compromise”.
I wonder if they proposed a real compromise, like repealing the Gun Free School Zone act.
My point though poorly made is: whatever federal officer ( Barney Fife or real one) will ask the question and purposely walk away knowing he will not put his life on the line forcing a gun owner to volunteerly give up his guns....
I know they will be stepping over my dead body to get mine...
Don’t lie to them. Just say nothing. You are not obligated to answer any questions, though giving your name and address is okay. Other than that, you really don’t have to say shit. If they get uppity, tell them you are not being difficult, but you feel you are being intimidated and that you will only answer questions through your attorney.
That would be a treason triple play if true.
“...We stand together....”
Millions of pissed off AMERICANS.
I just signed on as a member tonight. On top of sticking it to the gun grabbers, I get a free NRA hat to wear everywhere and a decal for my car.
I got a packet in the mail from them this week, and am considering it.
That Hat might be what seals the deal.
I wonder if any people who praised the FBI at Waco and Ruby Ridge have seen the light. Or will they be like the liberals who worshipped obama so much they can never admit they were wrong?
“What will be interesting to see in all of this is whether the Dems the NRA bought (e.g., Harry Reid) stay bought.”
When the crucial votes are held in the Senate for gun control legislation, expect nearly every democratic senator to vote with the president, regardless of their former “favorable” ratings from the NRA. Well, maybe one or two exceptions, not more than three at the most.
Same thing in the House — 95% or more of the ‘rat representatives will vote as ordered by Obama.
I hope I’m wrong, but that’s how I see it.
I was just thinking about that topic today. I wonder what Obama’s answer would be if you asked him, “Your living in the 1800's, would you arm the slaves if you had the opportunity? And why?”
Someone should be asking.
Did they ever rally think it would be anything but that??
