(NationalSentinel) They began as a group prepared to support and defend the Constitution of the United States during the Obama administration. But since the election of Donald J. Trump, their numbers of swollen - from a couple dozen to now more than 400.

They call themselves the Three Percent Security Force, after the 3 percent of colonists who rose up in arms against the British king during the Revolutionary War. And they aren’t afraid of Trump; in fact, they’re empowered by him.

What they are concerned with is the growing political unrest, violence and chaos being ginned up on a near-daily basis by the deep state and other Alt-Left forces against the president.

And they’re not afraid to make their armed presence known at anti-Trump events. As reported by CBS46 in Georgia:

The Three Percent Security force, named after those who fought in the American revolution (It’s said - only three percent of the colonists fought against the king’s tyranny) says they’re preparing to “uphold and defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

They train like a military, “basic infantry man skills, everything from communications to combat lifesaving medical first aid.”

Founded in Henry County, the group started out as an anti- President Barack Obama group, before openly supporting President Donald Trump’s run for President.

Since the election in November, they say their militia’s membership has boomed from a few dozen to 400 members — active and armed.

Lead by Marine Corps veteran, Chris Hill — their presence has been seen at recent anti-Trump demonstrations, guns in hand. They say their goal is to create awareness of the right to bear arms.

But they say they’re also out to help those who may need protection.

“The level of violence I see coming from these protests is alarming, I think that creates more of a need for people like us to be there,” Hill said.

Hill says, just as anti-Trump supporters have a right to organize and protest, his group wants to show their presence.

“We have a duty to protect, our freedom, our liberty, our constitutional Republic.” Hill said. “That responsibility can’t be deferred to you know Congress.”

Various other reports note that other militia groups are also growing in numbers - again, not because they fear Trump, who has assembled the most conservative Cabinet and overall team in decades, but because they fear that, eventually, the Left will cross the line and all hell will break loose in our cities.

The fact is, most militia organizations are staffed by quasi-professional people who have loads of real military experience, are very patriotic, very caring and very selfless. They don’t do it for a paycheck, and the sure don’t do it for media adoration, which is rare.

They sense a real creeping threat to our freedoms and our liberties, and they are voluntarily stepping up to defend them - for all Americans, no matter their race, creed, color or bathroom choice.

They deserve a pat on the back, some support and recognition. At some point they may be all that stands between the authoritarian Left and the preservation of our republic.
