Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
For the complete list of DailyKos diary guidelines, please click here.

Please begin with an informative title:

That the Governors, CiC of, of the States can call on in times of need and if so security of the State!

Salem Takes Honor as National Guard’s Birthplace
The history of the National Guard began on December 13, 1636, when the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony ordered the organization of the Colony's militia companies into the North, South and East Regiments. The colonists adopted the English militia system which obligated all males between the ages of 16 and 60 to possess arms and participate in the defense of the community. Though the exact date is not known, the first muster of the East Regiment took place in Salem, Mass. Graphic courtesy of the National Guard Bureau

ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 18, 2013 – On Jan. 10, President Barack Obama signed into law a bill that designates Salem, Mass., as the birthplace of the National Guard.

Local officials, politicians and members of the Massachusetts National Guard gathered at the Salem City Hall yesterday to celebrate the signing of the bill.

“What a lineage we have -- what an honor to be here,” Massachusetts Guard Adjutant General Air Force Maj. Gen. L. Scott Rice said at the ceremony.

“What a great meeting of all the history in the place,” Rice added.  read more>>>

While individual gun owners have the right to 'bear arms' they are not a trained and regulated militia of any state, to be called upon in emergencies nor even security of said state by the Commanders of the Governors or if needed the President as National CiC of the regular military. That gives the states and the federal government, the people, the right to regulate the arms that can be carried by the private citizens if they pose danger to the occupants of each state, whether by owner or others, and have no purpose other then that possible danger to others because of the advancements of the weapons produced. Those modern weapons are held in armories of the trained and regulated militia's, the State National Guard, and are used for purpose intended!

Groups that form, especially with high velocity weaponry, and well stocked ammunition supplies for, and train themselves while saying they regulate themselves, in these modern times, are labeled by Nations and Nation States as 'criminal terrorists organizations' with training camps and bent on ideologies to individual wants and not a civil society existence!

If you don't buy that last then stop readily labeling others as 'terrorist' or 'terrorist organizations', they too want the best developed and able to procure offensive weapons, by any means, to carry out their ideologies, they're no different then you or what you're arguing and fighting for! It's that simple!
