Defending Freedom, Families, and Communities since 1775 !
As best stated in the worlds of our Founding Fathers...
"The powers of the sword, say the minority of Pennsylvania, is in the hands of Congress.
My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for the powers of the sward are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty.
The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible.
Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom?
Congress have no right to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American....
The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or the state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."
Tench Coxe, a delegate for Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress in 1788-1789 - Pennsylvania Gazette, February 20, 1788

THE WRAM MISSION
WRAM's mission is to aid, assist, and otherwise provide for the successful establishment and continuation of legitimate, locally oriented citizen militia units throughout the United States of America. To this end, WRAM focuses on the needs of both militia units and current and potential unit members by providing communication, leadership, organizational, and educational opportunities. Additionally, WRAM provides multiple venues for public information, expert analysis and opinion of news and events, and crucial interaction between and among militia members and their leaders.
WRAM Transition: Phase 2
The first quarter of 2014 saw the initial WRAM Transition phase that focused on the development and alignment of militia ground units to their respective WRAM groups. I want to thank those unit commanders who assisted us in successfully setting up their groups. As a reminder, if you haven't yet created a group for your unit or still need to filter out non-nonresident members, please drop me a line via WRAM email.
Beginning this month, we have begun Phase 2 of the transition. In this phase we have introduced our new WRAM Resource Center, (still under construction but available for resource download), and will presently begin streamlining WRAM to ensure greater focus on member preparation and militia ground unit operations.
Not coincidentally, this effort is happening during a time of "game changing" events such as the call to action in Nevada and the often frantic warnings of impending social and economic collapse. It is clear that hardcore preparation, training, and readiness must take the preemptive lead in our efforts to provide realistic, critical services to American militia units. To that end, the following actions will be taken on a gradual but timely basis:
...Phase out of the "Chat Room"; possible phase out of additional areas as usage dictates; elimination of nonessential "specialty and information groups," and elimination of non-qualifying "militia groups."
Not slated for phase out are essential features that provide for and asset in information sharing and communication, including the Forum, Personal Blogs (at this time), Militia Groups representing local ground units, and specialty/information groups that serve a vital purpose in the WRAM Mission stated above.
Some of these actions will be controversial - I understand that. Please bear in mind, however, that time to prepare is likely running out. The recent events in Nevada signaled what may well be profound changes in America. While some of these changes are clearly positive, others may not be. The "Bundy" event may not be over, and it's very likely federal enforcement efforts will modify and change accordingly. Suffice it to say, any predictability of the future is, at best, vague and dynamic. All of us, both militia and citizens, must re-double our efforts to prepare for unknown events and an unknowable future.
In essence...it's time to get lean and mean, very real, and very focused! The coming WRAM transition is our best effort to do just that as we strive to fulfill the WRAM mission.

It is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of Rick Light's beloved Robin. For those of you who may not know, Rick is the founder of WRAM. Beside him, in all ways, was Robin; who gave him support, guidance, and the priceless wisdom of one who cared deeply about what was clearly a joint effort for the militia movement in America.
Success is seldom a solo endeavor; so it was with Rick and Robin. She will be missed by all of us here at WRAM. To Rick, words can barely express our heartfelt condolences and support.
God's speed, sweet lady...
Update March 29, 2014 Regarding Robin Light know to many here on WRAM as Mrs. Minuteman.
Its with a heavy heart we pass this information along to all of you. We are very sorry to inform all of the passing of our dear sister, Robin Light.
Robin was known to all of us as a great woman, a kind woman and a true patriot. Our sincerest condolences to Rick Light aka Minuteman. Keep Rick in your prayers. He will need much support to maintain his strength during this difficult time.
Rest in peace our dear sister, Robin, you will be missed. January 09, 1954 to March 29, 2014
Further information regarding the services for our sister Robin Light:
Services will be held on April 03, 2014, in Rockspring, TX. If you are able to attend, please do.
In such sorrowful times a few words of kindness mean everything. Take a moment to add a message to Robins husband, Rick light, Minuteman.
More information will follow.
"In memory of Robin Light aka Mrs. Minuteman"

WRAM Position on Operation American Spring
Operation American Spring, OAS, seems to be one of those ideas that people either love or hate; either believe in and support, or think is a bad idea, poorly conceived, and shouldn't be attempted at all.
Some in the ranks of the militia feel this kind of operation is the best, if not the only, way to force attention and action to correct the ills of our nation brought on by an agenda-driven administration, allowed by a self-serving congress, and ignored by a complicit judicial system. Others in our ranks feel just as strongly that OAS is nott only a bad idea, but may well do the militia and its movement more harm than good.
After several days of thought on this, and numerous requests for WRAM to take a position on the planned actions of OAS, I was left with a single overriding conclusion...Operation American Spring does not, and cannot by its planned actions, represent in any way the mission of WRAM to support local militia units in their mission to provide safety and security for their local communities under the authority of the constitution and local civilian authority.
Indeed, the militia units throughout America derive their power, authority, and mission objectives not from action on the national stage, but on the home front where their families, neighbors, and local elected officials may one day rely on these units to keep peace and order amidst chaos and defend them against dangerous, lawless aggressors.
While it is the right of every citizen to make known their objections and displeasure with the government or others in power, WRAM feels it is a militia member's primary duty to do so lawfully and from their own communities. The final individual decision lies, of course, with each citizen and WRAM respects that right. However, given their proposed, planned actions, Operation American Spring is something WRAM cannot and will not support for the reasons given above.

SUPREME COURT PUTS U.S. ON BRINK OF REVOLUTION!
Slams Door on American People by Doing Nothing!
The Supreme Court of the United States last week put the final nails in the individual freedom and states rights coffin.
The court, by refusing to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling, essentially eliminated any reasonable possibility of a peaceful, judicial limitation of federal power and encroachment on individual and state’s rights! Without these protections, it is only a matter of time before the American people will have to act to protect themselves from the growing tyranny of the Federal government.
To find out just how much danger we are in and how close we now are to the second American revolution, read the entire article. (Link below) Then, pass it on to every adult you know…before it's too late!

Lessons From Kiev
Click this link to Shtfplan.com for a story about government snipers targeting protesters turned revolutionaries. There are several lessons to be learned here, not the least of which is the vulnerability of OpFors all bunched up in groups and the necessity for counter-snipers in all operations. While you're there, also check out some of the other topical stories from Shtfplan.com
And in the US...Revolt is in the Air
Push back is becoming civil disobedience in America, talk of outright revolution is becoming commonplace, even in mainstream media. Check out this article from USA Today for just three examples. The lesson here is clear that if enough people complain, fail to comply, or simply raise holy hell, the ruling elitists will often back down!

Dedicated to the Preservation of our Freedom,the Security of our Rights, and the Restoration of our Constitution to its rightful place as the LAW of our great Republic.
IF YOU WANT TO PRESERVE YOUR RIGHTS AND FREEDOM, WATCH THIS VIDEO AND JOIN US IN THIS MOVEMENT.
The Well Regulated American Militias (WRAM) is not a militia group, it is a web-based organization dedicated to the individual and collective exercise of Americans’ freedoms of speech, association, and petition under the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. The Well Regulated American Militia exists pursuant to the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights for purposes of advancing and strengthening “the Militia of the several States” under the Second Amendment and other provisions of law. We seek to facilitate channels of communication between individuals and organizations interested in the Militia, inform each other about legislative action affecting ownership of firearms, individual liberties, and other issues of law. We encourage political action and participation, particularly by exercising the franchise of informed voting. We recognize as constitutional “Militia” only such groups as have been formed and operate under lawfully mandated statutes within particular states. We specifically reject any and all forms of illegal activity. The only use of firearms endorsed by this site is in defense of self or others.
We would like to clearly state that we are committed to a posture of defense, and do not advocate the unlawful targeting or overthrow of our form of government by any person or persons. This site is a place for the independent militia groups to come together to share training techniques and teach the correct unvarnished history of our Republic, our States, the formation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and to teach & promote participatory citizenship based on professionalism, safe unit structures for every American to join and being a productive and positive part of the security of our communities.
