Militia were the people of the colonies. They came with what they had, and
they kicked British butt. The Militia today are also the people, and many
are former military, they are better equipped and organized than you think.
They will be and are ready to go when needed.
Nice first post, attack without reading. Militia groups who come from all other states are NOT, repeat NOT the Arizona State Guard, as the STATE GUARD will be organized by the Governor. Notice the law clearly states, the STATE GUARD has NOT been set up yet. Here's the WHOLE thing,
Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Arizona:
Section 1. Section 26-174, Arizona Revised Statutes, is amended to read:
START_STATUTE26-174. Arizona state guard; establishment; purpose; appropriations
A. If the national guard of Arizona or a major portion thereof is called into active federal service, or if the national guard or a major portion thereof is alerted for federal service or for any other reason the governor considers to be necessary, the governor may establish an armed force for the safety and protection of the lives and property of the citizens of the state which shall be known as the Arizona state guard.
B. The Arizona state guard shall insofar as practicable be governed by and subject to the laws of the state pertaining to the national guard. The governor shall issue or cause to be issued rules and regulations to govern administration and organization of the state guard.
C. Appropriations made to the national guard shall be deemed appropriated to both the national guard and the Arizona state guard, if and when the latter organization is established, and any funds which that are unexpended from appropriations to the national guard may be used for establishment and maintenance of the Arizona state guard.
So as much as I am wondering what she may do with it, the likelyhood is very little right now. Hoping she's at least set up a core organization to make a framework for the real thing should it be called into existance. Notice there are no regulations, payscales, nothing in the current law, everything needs to be written.
