^^^ and please note that he is NOT in the military... he's a civilian.
The military will, in the end, defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I believe that the tipping point of defending it against domestic enemies will be reached within the lifetime of some of you youngsters reading this. I fear that this is true, I sincerely do not hope that it is true.
I suspect that it will start with a National Guard at the state level defending a state against federal intrusion into it's soverign powers. We are already seeing the bud of this tree growing in states that are considering laws regarding criminalizing enforcement of new federal gun controls. It's not a far stretch of the imagination to contemplate a governer putting teeth into the defense of his state. History lesson: Use of National Guards to attempt to prevent school integration in the 1960's. Those who forget history are damned to repeat it.
