Poll: If ordered, would you draw your weapon on and detain American citizens on U.S. soil?

The chatter about potential martial law in the U.S. is growing.

Conspiratorial or not, the “laws” being passed or broken including Constitutional disregard, suggest trial runs testing citizen resistance are already taking place in certain cities. Either way, our liberties are dwindling quickly.

This poll has been on our sidebar for several months and the results suggest that nearly 30% would readily follow orders to detain American citizens on American soil.

While not explicit in the question, ‘draw your weapon’ implicitly presumes if you draw your weapon on an American citizen on American soil you would be willing to use it as trained. Take the poll.

  1. Sent to my child who is active Air Force JAG here in the states; recently returned from Afghanistan.

    • Thanks – added a link to the page on the executive orders

    • it never ceases to amaze me that this admin has succeeded in convincing the public that Muslims who really do wish to overthrow the govt are just a peaceful benign group and simultaneously and successfully have demonized the tea party as violent racists (which is far far from true or factual or based upon any evidence )
      Orwell was only off by couple years………..
      war is peace

      I am no longer wondering how Hitler was able to pull the wool over so many eyes- it so easy to understand now to see how it happened- People I know I used to be friends with are the Obamanazis now- how long before they show up at our doors and march us out to death??

      • Apparently you are unaware that this administration has done more to destroy Islamic extremism among American citizens than the previous did. While the Bush family goes hunting and plays golf with the bin Ladens, the Obama administration was the one that initiated the motion to assassinate enemies to the USA even if they are American citizens, sending in its drones to kill Awlaki.

        Hitler and Orwell have nothing to do with any of this.

        • Abby dear, you’re the one getting it wrong. Obama did NOT take out bin Laden, he simply rubber stamped (against his will) what his Generals decided. And to say he is fighting against islam?

          Seemingly, you are blind to the fact that the Obama gang are not even disguising the fact that legions of muslim ‘biggies’ are tramping the corridors of the White House–as honoured guests.

          Your ‘hero’ in the White House is a narcissistic liar, and every single decision he has made in the last 3 1/2 years has been in favour of muslims. He calls your Constitution a ‘failed experiment’ and is making a mockery of the US. Why are you blind to all this?

          • I DO AGREE WITH YOU PETER35:OUR OWN GOVERNMENT RIGHT NOW ARE THE TERRORIST OF THEIR OWN NATION AND HER PPL! AND I ALL SO BLAME THE MEDIA AS WELL PLAYS A BIG PART TO THIS,AND YES I WILL USE MY GUNS ON ANY ONE WHO COME’S TO MY LAND AND HOME TO HURT ME OR MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS ,I DONT LIKE WHAT I SEE COMING OUT OF THIS GOVERNMENT TODAY AND THE WAY IT HAS LIED AND DISHONORED HER OWN PPL TO BABY OTHER’S THAT WANT TO HURT THIS NATION,[TOMAS PAINE]SAID IT WELL WHAT I SEE TODAY,HE SAID TO ARGUE WITH A PERSON WHO HAS RENOUED THE USE OF REASON IS LIKE ADMINISTERING MEDICINE TO THE DEAD. AND FOR ME A NATION WHO DISHONORS THIER FATHERS BEFORE US I HAVE NO USE FOR THEM !

        • Peter35 is absolutely correct about Obama. Not to mention all the stealth jihad and creeping Sharia going on, as if we don’t see it. Just watch CAIR if want evidence.

        • Abigail knows exactly what is going on. She is a proud follower of taquiya.

          • nah she is traitor Jew for Obama- one more lib Jew out of touch with reality- promoting, heavily invested in shilling for Muslim ones. A multi culti Obotic who sees beauty in everything Arab but does not support her OWN people’s survival-

        • but but don’t drones kill “innocent civilians” as collateral damage? and according to lib logic that will make them “hate us more”

          funny how all the antiwar protestors disappeared when Obama waged MORE war than Bush- ones no approved by Congress as Iraq was (Libya) and the ONE get s Nobel for peace – pure irony or pure idiocy,

  2. The oath I took said ALL enemys foreign or DOMSTIC

  3. Look to how the French police cooperated with the Nazi occupiers. Sadly, after France was liberated, few were ever prosecuted for their collaboration.

  4. I cannot take the poll. The circumstances would determine. I would draw my weapon to defend on Americans on U.S. to DEFEND the Constitution. I am sworn to do so, as are all military personnel.

    • Under the Second Amendment, We the People have a God given right to defend ourselves from tyranny. Dear fellow, do not ever draw your weapon first against We the People or you will pay the price. You did not take an oath to protect a tyrant who has already shredded the Constitution and violated every provision of the Constitution and every law he can find. You are not sworn to fire upon American citizens for defending their Constitution and Constitutional Rights. If you really feel you are justified, then perhaps its time for you and others with the same attitude to leave the military immediately; you’ve been brainwashed and are a real danger to a civil society. Instead, you should join with your fellow citizens and do your sworn duty as an American Citizen to defend our God given rights, our Constitution and our Country from a tyrannical government.

  5. More to consider, from a retired Major General: Who Does The Government Intend To Shoot?

  6. ok if i had to stop some one from hurting my family you dam better believe i will,i go by the constitution! and to those who takes this oath they are called the oathkeeper when you take that oath its to the constitution not to the commer-in-chief but to we the ppl and the constitution

  7. You forgot the US Coast Guard

    • We left them off intentionally because of the domestic nature of their role. After second thought and considering they take orders from DHS we’ll add them in. Thanks.

  8. It really depends on who we consider Americans. To me, Muslims and Mexicans, and a few others are not, regardless of whether they answered a few easy citizenship questions. Both are here to take over the country.

    • What about the Muslims who were born and raised here? What about the Christian converts to Islam who started off as choirboys with blonde hair and blue eyes and became home-grown Muslim terrorists in Long Island and the Carolinas? Are they citizens? Does what you consider to be a criterion for citizenship overrule the law? If so, how and why?

      • abigail

        Anyone, born here, came here, converted, following Mohammad and the Quran including blonde ex-choirboys.

        Since Islam is a political doctrine with some religion in it, it never should have been permitted to be practiced here. There is no partial or half way with Islam. It competes with our Constitution and Western culture. Any doctrine that does that is an enemy.

        When 80% of the mosques in this country preach violence against and Sharia for America, Islam is not our friend.

      • what about them? sedition and plotting to overthrow the govt and planning to blow up synagogues are capital crimes citzens or not- try them in a court and FRY them like any other deadly criminals- oops you are probably left enough to oppose death penalty

  9. Ordered by whom?

  10. If I knew they were a Muslim then I might consider drawing my gun. Islam is our enemy. Unfortunately it would be Obama and his Muslims socialist friends who might try to declare Marshal law if he loses the election.

  11. I had an officer once ask me if I had a problem following orders… I told him, “I have no problem following LAWFUL ORDERS, SIR!!” So I am no stranger to telling the chain of command to piss up a rope if I know they are doing wrong… but then again… that is the Sailor in me! lol

  12. Poll or not, it’s going to happen. What a military person believes beforehand will be put to the test when others in the group are prepared to follow orders. It may come down to shooting fellow soldiers to defend civilians. In fact, the probability is good that it will.

  13. I was just talking with a young enlisted man (training to be on a submarine)- he mentioned this very topic in conversation with a vet, saying I would never open fire on USA citizens- no matter what
