View Full Version : What will martial law be like?

I will share with you a little secret about my socialist comrades and I.
The path to the new society lies through discipline and submission to the authorities. This becomes impossible if half of the population own guns and may join organized resistance. Despite our progressive efforts, the ban on gun ownership has fallen behind schedule. It was originally scheduled to expire simultaneously with bourgeois morals. But thanks to Welfare, feelgood schools, the ACLU, and through the promotion of drug culture, we have achieved the deterioration of morals and personal responsibility in inner cities ahead of schedule. This lapse in timing has created a rather unpleasant urban mix of guns and drugs, which makes us want to move to the suburbs.
Not Perfect, But Forgiven

Curfews, road block checks, i.d. checks, at first. Then it will become even more intrusive.
Yep, all the way down to the implementation of "the mark."

Implementation of Martial Law can be at any conceivable level, as invisible or obvious as they wish to make it. They make whatever law they want and we have to comply.
The severity would depend on just what they are trying to control I would think. Crowds and gatherings? Travel after certain hours? Restricted entry to just certain areas? All the way up to and including total control of your life. This is a very, very broad and open ended question.
My guess is that it would start as just restricted gatherings and travel late at night unless there were a need to clamp down to totally prevent something.
Unless there is a real perceived need to restrict or stop something in particular, I suspect it will start in a very inoffensive way and just get tighter as we get used to it and opposition dies down.

Like the SS in Nazi Germany, have your papers ready and with the surveilence tech we have today, your face as relaxed as possible. Remember, they can tell when you're nervous, and that's what they'll look for.:marionette

Yup. That's one of the reasons I haven't put a lot of money into new guns that I want. I *expect* the government to turn on us and take them away with little or likely no compensation.
I havent put moeny into guns either. I'm looking for more unorthodox forms of weaponry by taking it back a few centuries with bows & arrows, throwing axes, got a torch, rake, and pitchfork at the ready, and looking to top it all off with tar & feathers. Pretty good arsenal don't you think? :candle

It looks like as soon as the computer chip (RFID tag) that can be hard wired to your brain waves ( brain waves that are unique as a thumb print) or connected to the UPC barcode in your right hand or forehead is the defacto system of credit/currency, then martial law will have to begin.
We already know that anyone who knows the word of God will resist this eternal curse (deceit) but will find that it will be looked upon as being un-american. Sons will betray parents, friends will betray neighbors, and a great number of those of understanding will be shot, burned out of their homes, sent to jail (if you try to purchase gas, food, clothing, public transportation, etc without the chip) or bankrupted.
The book of Daniel states that they of understanding will do EXPLOITS and try to convert many until the time (rapture).
I do not know what those exploits are, but it looks like trying to survive would be one of those. The big problem is that the leadership of this country and unbelievers will use FLATTERY as a way to get the saints to not take this action too seriously. They will disassociate themselves from what is happening, and by into the lie that our country will be saved because of the new economic reality.
I also do not know if buying weapons is the answer ( law inforcement is looking into non-lethal lasers, robotic attack dogs, etc.) I do know that banding together as the CHURCH and praying before GOD will make the difference. Oh Lord come quickly!!

Yes, small tests are already being run in the US to see how people will respond to martial law. Note that this is taking place while George Bush is the president even though many praise him for bringing peace and freedom to the world.
That is the start....

I am from Mingo Co WV...born and raised there. Anyway, my husband and I knew a man who lived through a stage of Martial Law during the 1920s. His name was Hop Rush and it took place during the Mine Wars in the Southern WV Coal fields. If you're interested, get the movie "Matewan" and you can learn about it. Anyway, Hop said that during that time the law confiscated all guns. You could NOT have one in your possession without getting arrested. Also, no more than two people could congregate on the street at one time. If there were three people talking to each other, they ran the risk of being arrested. So if you wanted to talk to two people that you knew, you had to go up to them, say what you wanted to pass along and then immediately move on yourself or the law would arrest you. There was no public meetings of any kind. Not sure about church meetings...but there were no others at that time.

Hmm. Never really gave it much thought but I'd imagine you could look at history and other countries to get an idea. Seems I've read that in Europe guns are used only for hunting...everyone gave their guns up pretty easily and all hunting weapons are kept in a government facility that you can check out if you want to go hunting.
I kind of doubt that the government would actually call it "martial law" since the very mention of this term is enough to send alot of people into a panic, unless it's due to an attack or natural disaster of some type, in which I think people will be grateful for it.

Martial law will be terrible. It effectively means the end of your own decision making abilities. When to go out, where you want to go, what you can eat, who you can know.
And of course with martial law comes the inevitable necessity of implementing it and upholding it. And that usually involves dealy force.
