It seems that with the militia movement picking up steam again people are becoming more hostile to it. The government and the ACLU are painting us as
crazy extremists and the image is starting to stick. I've even had people on ATS be hostile to me about my support of the overall militia movement and
the fact that i am setting one up in my home town. While their is a SMALL amount of anti-government terrorists masquerading as militias the vast
majority of us aren't looking to topple the government. My group for example is far more interested in preparing for local disasters (both natural and
man made) than taking arms against the government. I'm not going to say we wont defend the constitution from threats (foreign or domestic) but its
simply not a big priority until first blood is drawn, which wont be on us.

Those who have a problem with Militias, the one that will never sacrifice are cowards. I saw it last night, it started with one man, he was atop a
horse. He went from house to house. Never spoke a word, but from the way he was outfitted, he didn't have to. It took a while before the first person
joined with him. The more that joined, the more joined. It was beyond words.
Good on ya OP.
I can recall several years ago the town where I grew up was hit by tornadoes. They did not call out my national guard unit.....but there were SEVERAL
good ole boys in cammo with chain saws clearing roads, and ensuring people were OK.
I couldn't make it home myself (I was stuck in this little place called the republic of panama). I'm very glad men like you were there to help.
the way i see it if you are allowed to have girl/ boy scouts you can have a militia. what grinds my gears is that the militia is considered a threat,
to what? floods? droughts? lack of volunteer parade security volunteers? volunteer border patrol? too many camo baseball hats and open mindedness?
i'm not afraid of guns, but i do fear index fingers. or if you're tom berringer middle fingers. (hah sniper movie reference!) i would rather have
neighbors watch my back than someone from fema the u.n. or department of jerkland security
