Question from John Y
Been reading your site for some time, own your book, and appreciate what you and the WolfPack have to offer.
I recently read your posts and comments about militia and also watched the Nat Geo show on the 3 militia groups. This got me thinking about what a militia is and I have to say, I’m confused. I’ve read the definitions and even looked at the Militia Acts of 1792 and 1903 to get a better understanding, but frankly I’m still confused.
If the National Guard is the modern day equivalent of the militias as outlined in the Constitution and subsequent Militia Acts, then what are the groups shown in the NatGeo show? Are they just another social group like the Rotatory Club or Shriner’s, or something else?
Thanks for your hard work on the blog. Keep it up.
