    Tier 1 Citizen

    Define Your "Why"

    My name is Abner Miranda. I’m a former cop with a dedicated focus on training. Since 2004 I've attended 58 courses (and counting) in varying disciplines to include weapons employment, dignitary protection, team tactics, structure clearing, and tactical medicine. 

    We the Tier 1 Citizens are the first line of defense of our homeland. When I hear the term “first responders,” I think of private citizens, not the cops. As a former cop, I can assure you, seldom did we ever arrive in time to stop anything. Defending our homeland is the job of the citizenry. If you think I’m wrong, read your bible. There you’ll find the same moral precepts our founding fathers wrote into the Constitution, and Bill of Rights. Our homeland is our collective responsibility to protect.

    Awaken Your Tier 1 Citizen

    For the past 15 years, the tactical industry has propagated an agenda insinuating that unless you’re a “Tier 1 Operator,” you’re a nobody. Allow me to disabuse you of the notion that you’re somehow less because you’re “just a regular guy.” Remember that our founding fathers were farmers, surveyors, and blacksmiths, and they truly were Tier 1 Citizens. So don’t despair because you’re just a “regular guy,” George Washington would be proud of you.  

    The propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right that heaven itself hath ordained.

    ~George Washington
