  •  A lot of states have (or have had) their own (0+ / 0-)

    defense forces/state guards/militias in the past. They are making a bit of a comeback lately because governors are finding out that the National Guard can be scooped up and hauled off to foreign lands at the whim of the federal Army. That leaves no one behind for state emergencies-- forest fires, crowd control, fugitive hunts, disaster response, etc.

    Levels of training and accountability vary, but these actually are "well regulated militias" in the proper sense, and would be a good place for people to gather if they want to qualify with civilian "assault rifles".

    The internet is ruled by cat people. Dog people are busy playing outside.
