Minutemen were civilian colonists who independently organized to form militia companies self-trained in weaponry, tactics, and military strategies from the American colonial partisan militia during the American Revolutionary War. They were known for being ready at a minute's notice, hence the name. Minutemen provided a highly mobile, rapidly deployed force that enabled the colonies to respond immediately to war threats.
The minutemen were among the first to fight in the American Revolution. Their teams constituted about a quarter of the entire militia. They were generally younger and more mobile.
The term has also been applied to various later United States civilian-based paramilitary forces to recall the success and patriotism of the originals.
Thanks, fellas, you've done it!
You've responded to our call for Minutemen in a big way.
No MM needs for the remainder of the vigil (sans a late opening, of course).
We're going to continue this work as we begin 40 Days/365.
It's a great way to get new men involved in this work with a limited commitment.
Keep your eyes and ears open for new recruits, and once again THANK YOU!!!

Before 2008, the United States Supreme Court had rarely delved into the meaning of the Second Amendment. This changed, however, when Dick Heller, a special police officer in Washington, DC, was prohibited from having a gun in his own home. When Heller sued the District, the case ended up before the Court, where “the history boys” disagreed sharply on the meaning of the Second Amendment.
Is the right to bear arms individual or collective? Prof. Joyce Lee Malcolm of George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School discusses the Supreme Court’s foremost decision on the Second Amendment, District of Columbia v. Heller. MORE
On September 17, Constitution Day, I chaired a panel organized by the White House. It was an extraordinary thing. The panel’s purpose was to identify what has gone wrong in the teaching of American history and to lay forth a plan for recovering the truth. It took place in the National Archives—we were sitting in front of the originals of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution—a very beautiful place. When we were done, President Trump came and gave a speech about the beauty of the American Founding and the importance of teaching American history to the preservation of freedom. MORE
It is of grave concern to me that 4 generations of my family fought to preserve individual constitutional liberties like freedom of speech. Yet technocratic secular fascists decided to end them for some Americans. The ruthless nature of the left is on full display & undebatable. Allen West

In my 22 years of active duty service in the US Army, I learned many lessons in leadership. I would be happy to share them with you, as they are enshrined on the 3×5 cards I carry. Having served in combat, my first combat tour was 30 years ago in Operation Desert Shield/Storm. It became very apparent that when bullets begin to fly, it is the resilient, resolved, and focused commander that inspires victory. I have always stated, “no one follows a Frantic Fannie into combat.” MORE
Continuing the week's theme...our Constitution. So many haven't read it; don't understand it and don't appreciate what it is and does. "We the people" have a responsibility to be the masters of our courts and Congress and not their servants as we've been lately. They are there to serve us and maintain our liberties and if they fail to do so, they need to be removed. The same is true for our state governments imo. If they remove our freedoms, they too should be taken down. I swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, not the government or anyone in it.
