Our constitution basically demands the same things out of standing militia. Not the gun registration naturally but officers in a standing militia are under regular military command if they were ever required. Members are also subject to military courts and inquiry for actions under arms.
But great for Mexico! I just wish they wouldn't call them vigilantes in the american press. Has a negative connotation. And be certain they are probably not calling them militia for a reason. Word to the wise.
Where is that in our Constitution?
A link maybe?
Has anyone yet considered the government is so damn corrupt that the lists of militia members will be in Cartel hands within hours of its being turned in to the army?
Sure the Mexican cops wear masks to hide their identity from Cartel vengeance, but the poor Vaqueros have to stand tall.....wheres the justice?
These peasants need a better support system than that......
Why are we arming alQueda terrorists and leaving honest Mexicans who have the courage to stand against the cartels instead of emmigrating north, to fight the well armed Cartels with inferior weapons?????....
How about a Fast and Furious deux? with a different set of recipients?
