Mission Statement

It is the intent of the Maryland Constitutional Defense Force to protect the law abiding Citizens of Maryland from any form of Unconstitutional infringements of civil rights through the political process and all available legal means, to provide local disaster support and assist in community training initiatives to foster moral leadership and good citizenship to our communities. To meet this aim, the all Volunteer Maryland Constitutional Defense Force will train and equip for the following: community security, natural and man-made disaster preparedness, and emergency readiness.

A legitimate Militia pursuant to the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution shall preserve the life, liberty, and property of all law-abiding citizens within its area through the preparation, training, and support of a lawful citizens’ group outside the jurisdiction of government. To better aid the defense of liberty, the Maryland Constitutional Defense Force shall train citizens within a well regulated organization dedicated to upholding our natural and inalienable rights and the Constitution of the State of Maryland.

Jurisdiction pursuant to 10 United States Code chapter 13, all citizens not counted as members of the armed forces or otherwise exempt or barred by law from military service are members of the unorganized militia. The unorganized militia may be called to service by the governor of the State of Maryland to aide state authorities in the lawful execution of their duties, or by general consensus of the population should the state fail in the execution of its constitutional duties
