Governor Parson has been generally quiet over his term. But he seems to have found his voice. Let's see if he keeps it. Time for other States to step up too. The Federal Government cannot abrogate the Second Amendment. Each state has their own National Guard, and technically it is the state’s military, not the federal military. The National Guard can be called by the Governor of the State, or by the President of the United States. Prior to the Civil War, State troops were referred to as the State Guard and they were at the sole order of the Governor. As currently worded, the Insurrection Act allows the president to call up the active military or federalize the National Guard supposedly under three circumstances: At the request of a state. To enforce federal law. To protect civil rights.
