CHAPTER I What Is the Militia

Copyright (C) 1994 Constitution Society. Permission is hereby granted to copy with attribution for noncommercial purposes. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------When asked what the Militia was, George Mason, one of the Framers of the U.S. Constitution, said, "Who are the Militia? They consist now of the whole people, except for a few public officers." Yet we also see statutes like 10 USC 311, which defines it as "all able- bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 13 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States." Some state statutes define it as "able-bodied males" of different age ranges, such as 16 through 59. These statutes also divide the Militia into various classes, such as "organized" or "unorganized", in the case of 10 USC 311, or "active" and "reserve", as many states do, with "active" being considered the National or State Guards, but not the national armed forces. To understand how these definitions have arisen, one must first understand what the Framers of the U.S. Constitution had in mind for the new Republic they had created. They allowed for a standing national army, but insisted that it be kept small, and although it might be the first force to be called out, and the only force to be sent abroad, the primary defense of the country was to be the duty of ordinary citizens, who would be kept in a state of military readiness while leading their normal lives, and who would be called up to "repel invasions, suppress insurrections, or execute the laws", for limited periods of time. At the time the Constitution was adopted in 1789, the well-established tradition was for local militia units to be kept in a state of readiness in each and every community. Such units were organized and trained locally, perhaps led by the local town or county officials, but otherwise independent of official control when not actually called up for service. When lawmakers tried to define the "militia" by statute to consist of less than the entire body of citizens, they were defining those citizens who would be required to be kept in a state of readiness, as was done in the Militia Act of 1792, which required able-bodied males age 17 through 44 to keep a "musket or firelock". However, persons younger than 18 and older than 45 regularly responded to call-ups of the Militia and were accepted as part of it. There were even some women who participated. The Framers also insisted on a distinction between the "genuine" Militia and a "select" militia, which they viewed as a danger, just as much a danger as a standing army. They did not want a militia whose members might consist of anything less than the entire people, or at least able-bodied ones in a certain age range, because if selected on any other basis, they might be used to oppress other parts of the population.

5

Actually, George Mason provided the best definition. It only needs to be broken out into various classes, representing the order in which persons would be called out for military service. Qualifications like "able-bodied" or "male" or "age 18-44" only establish who would be first called to service, with the expectation that they would be adequate for almost any situation, but it allows for calling up other persons if needed. This suggests a hierarchy of classes: National Army. Full-time. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard. Part-time. Reserves, National Guard. State and Local Select Militia. But these are not "general" militias. They are paid and equipped by the State or by local governments. Full-time. State and local law enforcement officers. Part-time. State Guard. Obligatory Militia. Able-bodied male citizens of a certain age range, who are required to be kept organized and trained, but at their own expense. Age range is 18-44 for federal purposes, but states may establish other age ranges. Volunteer Militia. Citizens not part of obligatory militia who voluntarily participate in activities of the obligatory militia, again at their own expense. Ready Militia. The combination of (3) and (4) above, who would be called up after the armed forces and the regular militia, but who are also those likely to be first on the scene in emergency situations. It is not a "select" militia. Reserve Militia. All other citizens, including children, the elderly, the less-able, and women, and perhaps foreign visitors as well, who might be called up after the ready militia, if needed. What is missing from the current picture is the ready militia. Most states now lump it in with what we are here calling the reserve militia, and in fact often call it that. The ready militia is what the Framers meant when they used the term "militia". It is also what the Swiss mean by the term, and it was the Swiss model that the Framers had in mind for the United States. The ready militia was to serve as a counterbalance to the armed forces and regular state (select) militias. It should be noted that the obligatory militia is usually defined to exempt certain public officials, and perhaps persons with certain occupations, whose usual duties are considered essential. Choice of words can be indicative. 10 USC 311 lumps the ready and reserve militias into what it calls the

6

"unorganized" militia, with the implication that it is to remain unorganized, since no provisions for organizing and training the ready militia are given, contrary to the intent of the Framers. Militias are local and independent. Often heard are arguments about whether militias are state or national, but the militia, like citizenship, is fundamentally local. We are first and foremost citizens of our local community. The word "citizen" has the same root as the word "city". Although people may also be concurrently citizens of larger political entities, such as states or the nation, and although those entities may be considered to be composed of their citizens, they are essentially composed of localities, and it is the local community that is the basis for the social contract, although it may be considered to include a certain amount of surrounding territory. Today we would usually identify the locality with the county. Just as militias are essentially local, so also are they essentially independent of established authorities, since the militia may have to challenge or bypass those authorities if they abuse their authority or fail to perform their lawful duties. The legal basis for assemblies of militias are two natural rights: the right to assemble and the right to keep and bear arms. Combined, they are the right to assemble bearing arms. The Framers considered it obvious that rights which could be exercised separately could be exercised in combination, and would have thought present attempts to outlaw independent assemblies of militia units as absurd. The term "well-regulated" used in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution did not mean "regulated by some official". It meant "well-trained and disciplined". A militia can and should be self-regulated. The U.S. Constitution, in Article I Section 8, does provide for States to organize and train their militias according to standards established by the U.S. Congress, and to appoint the officers, but it was not the intention of that clause to authorize states to forbid local organization and training of militia units, but to require that they be organized and trained. If the state fails to do so, people have not only the right but the duty to organize and train themselves locally, using their own arms. Just as they have the right and duty, failing action on the state level, to conduct elections, enforce the laws, establish courts, and so forth. Of course, a militia unit that is not called up by any official, but by its own members, does not have the authority to compel participation through some kind of sanction, such as the imposition of a fine. Therefore it will be composed of volunteers, who may not represent a cross-section of the general population. In this situation, the militia members must make a special effort to avoid having the militia unit take on the attributes of a private association, such as by always calling up the militia using public notices, and allowing any responsible citizen to participate. It must also avoid any suggestion of partisan or sectarian bias, and limit itself to constitutional actions.

CHAPTER II Central Alaska Militia's Mission Statement

The Central Alaska Militia in concert with other state citizen militias will advocate for peaceful, non-violent resistance in defense of our Constitutional Rights, yet be prepared to protect our families and community and in the event circumstances call upon us, to defend our Constitution from enemies both Foreign and Domestic. The Central Alaska Militia will train to conduct sustained self-preservation, survival and defensive operations through Internal Unit Training Events, Militia-to-Militia Training Events, Militia-to-Citizen Training Events, and provide support to State / Government Agencies to promote a stable and secure community. In the event required, The Central Alaska Militia will carry out operations as voted and agreed upon in order to provide security, protect the U.S. Constitutional Framework and defend our Constitutional Rights. Members of the Central Alaska Militia shall ever stand, as have our Forefathers, before us, First to God, from whom we acknowledge the authority of all rights, and all the blessings of governments and to our native soil, The Great State of Alaska. We therefore pledge: To defend the Constitution of the United States of America. To uphold and to defend the Bill of Rights, seen as inalienable, given by God to free men that they may remain free. To promote and defend the principles of just government bequeathed to us by our forefathers to whit, which the principle of the Tenth Amendment shall stand inviolate, as history has shown that the greatest system of checks and balances exists with the people and their States to check the powers accrued by the federal government. That the integrity of the courts, be they local, State or federal, shall remain uncontemptable providing that they shall respect and uphold the rights of the citizens of the State of Alaska, including but not limited to, upholding the due process of law, and to preserve the right of trial by jury and to obtain immediate judicial review of cases wherein abuse of basic Constitutional rights are questioned. That all power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety, and happiness; for the advancement of those ends they have at all times an unalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper. That government being instituted for the common benefit, the doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind. That all just government is servant of the people who have instituted it, that the people of the State of Alaska should never by force nor coercion be obliged to anything styled as "law" which has not been promulgated by their duly elected representatives, nor any as may be promulgated by them to bear conflict to the rights of the people, so that no government shall be made master of the people of the State of Alaska.

To promote and propagate the militia as a well regulated, (trained and prepared) organization knowledgeable in historical precedent and current affairs, that is composed of common citizens. To develop a cohesive and competent command structure. To train our members in the many disciplines necessary to the function of the militia as a whole and to the members individually. To educate our members in areas of history, law and principle as compiled in the experience and records of our forefathers. To keep informed our members, and all citizens of events Local, State, National and global that threaten to imperial our traditional Constitutional rights, or such as may imperial the sovereignty of our Nation by the undue influence of those who have forsaken their loyalty to our Nation, and to the principles upon which it was founded. To repel foreign aggression and invasions, by preparing and training for defense and by our encouraging and showing reason why all citizens should stand stoutly against socialism, fascism, communism, humanism, and all forms of tyranny. To suppress domestic insurrections and violence, by supporting and assisting the appropriate Officers of the Law in upholding and maintaining law and order in accordance with such Local, State and Federal statutes and laws as does not present jeopardy to our God given rights as acknowledged in the State of Alaska and United States Constitutions. To advocate for peaceful, non-violent resistance in defense of our Constitution. To provide for the safety, security, and well-being of our members and their families during times of local or national crisis and situations. To provide assistance to our friends, neighbors and community during times of local or national crisis and situations. To provide assistance to established State authority, first responders, emergency services, law enforcement agencies, and others--during times of local or national crisis and/or situations. To defend our state and country, our communities, and our families from any political regime or party that seeks to establish any form of totalitarian rule, or eliminates any provision of due process, habeas corpus, or the Articles of the United States Constitution. To defend our state and our country from any act of armed aggression by foreign powers, invading forces, United Nations military forces, whether or not said U.N. forces have been invited by members of any American administration, political parties, or other persons or entities.

Central Alaska Militia reserves the right to deny aid or assistance to any person, party, or agency that we deem are funded or operating in contradiction of established Constitutional rights. We will ABSOLUTELY NOT render assistance to ANYONE, in any operation of the following nature: Participation in weapons/firearms seizures Forced evacuations Forced resettlement, and/or forced anything Participation in any blockade of essential services, such as utilities or medical attention Restriction of the right to travel Any manner, that in anyway, denies Alaskan citizens due process, fair trial, or legal address

Removal of membership from the Militia is regulated by the Uniform Code of Militia Justice found on page 29 of this Handbook. ** SPECIAL NOTE** Members must be aware that there will be attempts to infiltrate our Organization. This can take three main forms: a. Moles. Agents who pretend to be trustworthy but who are mainly focused on obtaining information about militia members and their activities. b. Provocateurs. Agents who pretend to be responsible members, then, when least expected, do something which seeks to discredit the militia and perhaps provoke official action against it. c. Dissipaters. Agents who pretend commitment until they can assume positions of influence within the group, then use it to divert them into ineffective or unproductive activities, such as endless debate, socializing, and divisive disputes, or to reduce morale and resolve. Our best protection against infiltration is to remain vigilant to it.

13

1. The Code of Conduct found in Chapter XV of this handbook outlines what is expected by each member of this militia. Violations of said Code of Conduct will result in Militia members being subject to discipline by their peers. 2. Members may stand trial by their peers for such acts that would discredit the Central Alaska Militia or place the member's unit at risk. 3. Charges should be presented to the Group Commander. 4. No charge will be brought to trial unless supported by at least two accusing witnesses. 5. Should an incident arise the Commander will randomly select by drawing five members to hear the facts of the case before it. 6. The accused will stand in his own defense. 7. A simple majority of jury votes shall constitute guilt or innocence. 8. The maximum penalty able to be rendered for any offense shall be permanent dismissal from the militia. 9. After counsel and prayer, the convened jury of peers shall vote on appropriate action. 10. Any militia member may voluntarily withdraw from the militia at any time without prejudice for conscience sake. In such case, all issued equipment must be returned for conscience sake. It should be emphasized that misbehavior or wrongful acts must be handled with great wisdom and mercy. 11. It shall also be the right of each militia member to appeal to authority within the direct chain of command regarding grievances. In every case however, the militia member is expected to follow the order or directive first and make his appeal afterward. If a militia member for conscience sake, feels impelled to disobey, he should immediately withdraw from the militia without prejudice.
