The Tyranny Response Team is the embodiment of manís desire for freedom. We believe in the fundamental rights of all human beings. Our rights do not come from a majority vote, from politicians, or even from the Constitution - and are not subject to infringement by a government which ignores the Supreme Law of the land.

"We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights."

We pledge our commitment to the absolute restoration of our Bill of Rights, and further, to strict adherence to the legal and moral principles of the Declaration of Independence, upon which this nation was founded. We will rise against any assault on the unalienable rights that we as human beings are entitled to.

If you believe in liberty and the truths upon which this nation was founded, and reject the idea that any Government has a right to initiate violence upon its own citizens, then you are a member of the TRT


The purpose of the TRT is to influence public opinion to insist, that all laws of the Republic follow a strict adherence to the Bill of Rights, as enumerated in the body of the Constitution of the United States of America. Further, to influence public opinion to demand that all laws currently written or in force, that conflict with these rights be repealed; and that the individuals responsible for writing, making, or enforcing such laws be charged and prosecuted for willful violations of their oath of office and to the Constitution of the United States of America.

To demonstrate to elected officials, public servants and the public in general, by whatever means necessary, that the Constitution of the United States of America is the Supreme Law of the Land. That we recognize this Supreme Law of the Land as the Rule of Law; and that this Rule is, in its basis, not subject to a prior precedent that would contradict its original intent.

To perpetuate true Americanism, and further to those of us that it would apply, abide our oath taken in Civil Service: to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.

The TRT has chapters with websites in the following states:



Washington DC



Ethics and Conduct, foundational to the future and purposes of the Tyranny Response Team, will follow to the letter the content stated in its mission and purpose statements.

The conduct of all members, volunteers and founders of the TRT shall at all times be consistent with the principles of individual liberty and the safeguards of such liberty as enumerated in the Bill Of Rights. Furthermore, all those involved with the TRT will be held to the highest standards of truth, honesty, honor, justice and proper decorum. Behavior in opposition to the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights will not be tolerated. Such behavior may result in the immediate expulsion from the TRT.

As the TRT unilaterally rejects the concept of initiating violence against others, it most certainly will not limit itself nor its members from using whatever methods and force may be deemed necessary to protect, defend and safeguard its members and the citizenry as a whole, against such violence and threats that may be made against it.


The Tyranny Response Team is incorporated in the State of Colorado. There is a board of four directors who assist with the setting and implementation of national policy.

It all began in Colorado in February, 2000. Four hundred American patriots showed up on Governor Owen's front lawn to protest his abandonment of campaign promises to preserve the Second Amendment rights of the citizens.

Since then, it has grown to other states and many activists - strong and intelligent people with a firm commitment to protecting the inalienable rights of all human beings.

The blue and yellow shirts that are the organization's trademark have become an instantly recognizable sight in the cities of America. And much of our success of is directly attributable to this: that finally, American patriots are saying no more of the continuous abuses that we suffer at the hands of those who despise our enumerated rights...

and we are raising the price of tyranny in the street.
