  • Yes, they're legal private armies living among us

  • No, citizens should be allowed to organize for mutual defense

  • I live in Michigan, which is home to the largest militia in America. They crawl around in the woods like a bunch of fools, acting like they're a real military force. All they are is a bunch of tea party nut jobs forcing others to pay protection fees (Security Defense) so they can buy more military grade equipment and flee back into the mountains. Don't be surprised if you see a bunch of fat people camouflaging themselves in the woods if your ever in Michigan. We attract those kind of people. 10'000's of miles in forest for them to practice their debauchery.

  • Honestly, it's as if they don't trust the government to defend our homeland from attack. I mean, I don't trust the government on a lot of things, but this is getting ridiculous. The government knows that no people around means no taxes and thus no government.

  • The Bill of Rights guarantees us the right to be in militias.

  • They should be allowed to form militias , however asking you to may up is extortion and should be illegal and if they hurt any citizens it would be just as if a small army declared war one you and the goverment could go kill them.

If I had 2000 well armed followers, I would head out in the woods and root out these idiots myself. Http://www.Tellusdetroit.Com/city-gov/fed/court/images/hutaree%20members%20471-021412.Jpg

Is there really a need for militias, besides?

No, I am all for millitia's sanctioned by the state, but we already have self defense forces for our states. They answer to the state itself and not the federal government, which is why we don't need loony mountain boy militias.

I thought they meant like governments forced militia ( conscription ) and I was thinking who would stop them but after daring the comments I get it.

All these pictures are of the Michigan millitia. I believe the second largest is in Texas with like 130 people. This is the largest in America.
