What Is A "Three Percenter"?

From Sipsey Street:

During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King's tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another 20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it. Another one-third of the population sided with the King (by the end of the war there were actually more Americans fighting FOR the King than there were in the field against him) and the final third took no side, blew with the wind and took what came.

Three Percenters today do not claim that we represent 3% of the American people, although we might. That theory has not yet been tested. We DO claim that we represent at least 3% of American gun owners, which is still a healthy number somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million people. History, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. We are one such minority. So too are the current enemies of the Founders' Republic. What remains, then, is the test of will and skill to determine who shall shape the future of our nation.

The Three Percent today are gun owners who will not disarm, will not compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun control act. Three Percenters say quite explicitly that we will not obey any futher circumscription of our traditional liberties and will defend ourselves if attacked. We intend to maintain our God-given natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, we are committed to the restoration of the Founders' Republic, and are willing to fight, die and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, to kill in the defense of ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold against enemies foreign and domestic.

We are the people that the collectivists who now control the government should leave alone if they wish to continue unfettered oxygen consumption. We are the Three Percent. Attempt to further oppress us at your peril.

To put it bluntly, leave us the hell alone.

Or, if you feel froggy, go ahead AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

The Knox Report had an interesting article about this as well. Jeff stated that there are 90,000,000 gun owners and of those 30,000,000 are possibly the type to object to possible Supreme Court Infringement of the 2nd Amendment.

Let's take this and add some more assumptions (and yes I know what happens when you assume).

If of the 30,000,000 we get the true 3%ers that is 900,000 people who are not going away as happy campers.

If we divide this by 50 states and the District of Columbia we get 17,647 3%ers per state/district. We take that further and there are 3,143 counties in the USA so that is a minimum of 286.4 3%ers per county.

Now assuming that the average SWAT Team/Alphabet Soup Raid is a minimum of 10 to secure and achieve an "their" objective that is 2,864 SWAT Team/Alphabets Soup personnel per county or 9,000,000 personnel for the whole USA. As it happens my entire sworn officer county police force is less than 10% of the 2,864 number per county.

In order to implement a complete confiscation (we know they like to do things at night) there window of opportunity is very short.

To coordinate an effective raid to start at every 3%er's house is next to impossible. I believe that there are certain elements of the elites who would try to do it so long as they weren't the first ones coming through the front door.

If they start on the east coast at 2:00am or earlier it will be breaking news in the western states. The element of susprise is gone.

The next assumption in the equation is once the 9,000,000
"law enforcement" take arms against your neighbor(s) how may of the estimated 29,100,000 to 90,000,000 fence sitters will get into the act. I have no clue but it could be substantial.

I will say that in researching these numbers I am even more certain now that I am taking the right steps to protect myself and family.

My county police force would never be able to handle a complete breakdown of society and that is why I will never willingly give up my gun or any available means of self defense.

Just got an alert, take it for what it's worth but he states they're already starting to roll up the Patriots as quietly as possible so as not to alert them all.

Take it for what you will but I advise never be unarmed again, have escape routes, safe houses and battle plans in order and ready to enact at a moment's notice. Let's not give them any more easy meat.

J. Croft-

I'd like to know what constitutes your "alert" that "patriots" are being quietly "rolled up". Names, dates, specific actions? A link to any news articles?
