This is for the Marines? The Marines do not enforce domestic laws.
Whoever wrote this internet quiz should have used the National Guard.
I don't know about this recent one, but our unit had a similar survey back in 1985-6?. It was given to active duty Marines and Army units. Ours was at MCAS Beaufort S.C administered at the base theater. I may have written the following in the side of the column. "I would shoot the officer who gave the order!" The last question is still being asked and is unchanged.These surveys speak volumes as to the intent of the originator. It needed to be public back then imho so as the American people can judge its intent themselves...

#46 is bad,but #45 is even worse,that we have to swear alliegence to any other than our own Nation.
+1 regel42 US Forces do not enforce laws. That is a state, county, local job. Even FEMA gets the governor's ok before acting in a disaster. (Technically, the governor must request Federal help) This appears to be an ATTITUDE SURVEY of all branches. The statements are not necessarily what can be done,but asks for their attitude if they were ordered, asked, etc to do the things listed. Maybe the higher ups are trying to form their advice to DOD and the Comander-in-Chief should something like the "what ifs" is brought up. As for #12, I'd have a hard time doing that act. Unless I was fired upon, no.
If I'd known I was going to live this long, I'd taken better care of myself when I was younger
RIP Jeff Cooper
I've asked friends in the National Guard what they would do in this situation. All of them said no, but not for the same reasons. Some said no because of the constitution, the rest said no because of the constitution and that they would be afraid of people like me.
Infowars- Proving David Hannum right on a daily basis
President of the US in 1995. Bill Clinton.
Just a survey Yeah Sure and they banned the hig Cap mags ETC
I find don't recall ever seeing any inquiry as to how I 'felt' about something
Orders, directives and butt-chewings - yes, but not much about my 'feelings' or opinions.
'Clinging to my guns and religion
I would not be willing to answer that question were I a Marine.
