Fortress City Planned In North Idaho

ST. MARIES, Idaho - Proposed armored community says "every able bodied patriot must maintain an AR15" rifle.
 
It's called The Citadel and its a community proposed in Benewah County Idaho that will house up to 7 thousand people. Howevever this is not your ordinary community. According to the "preamble" on its website, "Every able-bodied Patriot of age within the Citadel will maintain one AR15 variant in 5.56mm NATO, at least 5 magazines and 1,000 rounds of ammunition." It is, in a sense a gated community with two stone walls surrounding it. Equipped with wall observation towers around the perimeter. The community would also be self sustainable and have all the amenities of a regular town. Schools, farmers market, town center and arms factory where people could work.
 
The company affiliated with The Citadel is named III Arms, incorporated in Idaho but has an address on its website in West Virginia. No phone number is listed on its website. KHQ reached out to the company via e-mail but the e-mails were not returned. Officials in Benewah county tell KHQ's Dylan Wohlenhaus that they have not heard from anyone affiliated with III Arms or The Citadel about the proposed community. 
 
According to the website it says, The Citadel would be a community of like minded citizens sharing in the ideal of Rightful Liberty. Meaning "neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors business, that neighbors live and let live".
