just a little discussion on the topic of civilian militias. (and before anyone mentions the national guard, i don't believe that they fall into the definition of militia.) when you think of modern militia groups, what pops into mind? do you think that militias and the idea of a militia is outdated? i'm sure a lot of people think of crazy backwoods rednecks when they think of modern militias. so i was thinking renaming militias. civil defense forces. sounds much nicer doesn't it? i do think that CDTs are still a good thing. not just in case of a red dawn scenario, but in case of natural disasters, or riots (like the riots from the early 90's) etc, etc. any thoughts that you guys have?
