  • What will martial law be like?

    I'm not trying to be 'tinhatty' here......but since I think our country is quickly headed down the path of no return I thought I would start a thread to ask what it will be like....or could be like. Not sure if this is the forum I should post this in, but since it is sure to be a last days event I thought this was appropriate. Moderators please move it to the correct category if this is wrong.

    So many people have bought up guns and ammunition....seems like it would be difficult for them to confiscate them all....how do you forsee them doing this?

    Do you think our children will go to school as usual or will there be a total breakdown of this? I can see homeschooling not being allowed.

    Will food be rationed? With all the stores we have it seems like it might be hard to do this.....if they purposely ration food, then so many stores will go out of business and then you have a loss of jobs and with people out of work that creates unrest and more of a problem on their end I would think. Better to keep us working and distracted so they can slide stuff by us.

    I'm just curious what others are thinking on this. I guess a study of the Adolf Hitler years might be a way of getting a handle on how this could be implemented.

    Curfews, road block checks, i.d. checks, at first. Then it will become even more intrusive.

      What martial law might be like would depend much on why it was put in place. It's very likely travel would be restricted. Curfews may be used. Normal rights would be suspended Habeas Corpus etc. If you lived in area where there was a civil disturbance you may be forced to evacuate or relocate somewhere else. It's very possible resources including fuel and food could be rationed if needed. It's really hard to say beyond that. Much would depend on the situation.

        I honestly hope we never find out. But I see your point that we are headed in that direction.

          The eve of September 11 2001 when no commercial aircrafts were in the air reminded me of what Martial Law could look like we take for granted looking in the sky and seeing commercial and private aviation dotting the daytime and night time sky so when it was gone back then

                  Here is an article to help people in CA. to get use to the idea of martial law. The Marine Corps Air and Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) Provost Marshal (head of a unit of military police) and the local California Highway Patrol office will begin working together 12/12 and through the holiday season in a joint effort to reduce accidents and drinking and driving.

                    The govt taking them is one thing. And if that happens, we will be facing bigger difficulties than just that as believers. However, what I think alot of people are "thinking" of is people in general, hungry angry people, mobs, taking what they want from your house. If martial law is not instituted quickly enough in certain situations, then it could get really ugly on the local level. Depending upon the govt to defend us (at that level) is almost like depending upon the govt for food, healthcare, and anything else we need in some ways.

                      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.

                        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.

                              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?
