    Trained is probably the wrong word, because a militia does training. The word that describes the difference between the National Guard and a militia escapes me. The National Guard is not a militia. A militia is formed from citizens.

    I never said they do not have that right. I know what the constitution says.

    I'm not. A malitia is apolitical and for defence of life and freedom. Attaching it to a political movement makes it a paramilitary organization no different from groups like the IRA etc.

    A malitia formed by a political movement is to be feared not commended.

    You very deliberately left that part out of your quote of Art 2:2.

    Well, I -did- read somewhere that a well-regulated militia is necessary for the security of a free state.
    i hope they are arrested. this is going to far.

    If that's the case, strangely enough, I'd rather like it. I know one of the issues with katrina and others was National Guard members being deployed. Having a force focused simply in the state that is able to give aid to emergency situations but is not bound to the federal government would assure that emergency response for the state could be possible.

    The language in this seems rather inflamatory, especially since "militia" in recent times has been something that conjures images of backwoods rednecks stock piling guns and thinking they're Green Beret's. However that's hardly the only definition of militia and with this going officially through the state I'd be willing to hold off judgement until we can see more information that's not simply broad strokes and stereotyped words.
    i'm sure they've chosen to use "militia" precisely to inflame. and the volunteer force will undoubtedly be white males and who feel the need to assert dominance. probably police force rejects, and from some of the experiences i've had with cops, they don't reject too many people.

    however, i''l wait to say "i told you so". let them play army for awhile.
