In an attempt to stir up fears of martial law, Shepard Ambellas posted this incendiary headlined article:
https://www.intellihub.com/dod-prepares-for-martial-law-in-conus-u-s-marines-approved-for-activation-live-fire-on-american-soil/
The linked page is:
https://www.marines.mil/News/Messages/Messages-Display/Article/1979422/manpower-guidance-for-activation-and-deactivation-of-reserve-component-rc-marin
As it states, it's a new version of an old MARADMIN (Marine Administrative Message), actually from 2014:
https://www.marines.mil/News/Messages/MARADMINS/Article/896455/manpower-policy-for-mobilization-of-reserve-component-rc-marines-iso-defense-su
There is nothing in either one that discusses martial law. It simply is an update to an administrative document regarding the use of the Marine Corps Reserve to assist in a state emergency, like an Earthquake. There's language changes, minor regulation changes, and some clarifications. But nothing really new.

The referenced law (§12304a) is

That's it. Nothing new, and not martial law.
