    It's a redundancy, actually.

    You're kidding, right? Please tell me you're kidding. Militia groups have been around since the founding, and there are many legitimate citizen militia groups.

    Thoughts on this? I hope they get whacked by artillery.
    There is nothing wrong with people forming a militia. I guess only a lib would see something wrong with people exercising their constitutional rights.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    We are being bombarded from news outlets to reality TV with the suggestion of a pending apocalypse. It is no surprise that many have taken it to heart and are preparing for the worse. While it may not be vary likely anytime soon it does make for good ratings.

    No, I'm not kidding at all. Who are some of these legitimate citizen militia groups?

    We don't even use artillery in Afghanistan if the rounds would hit close to populated arias, so it's unlikely artillery would be used against such a militia.

    Speaking of intellectual dishonesty, what does this have anything to do with Obama?

    Yep, laser guided bombs would be a better choice.

    10 USC § 311 - Militia: composition and classes | LII / Legal Information Institute

    a)The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
    (b)The classes of the militia are—
    (1)the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and

    (2)the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
    There done.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
