We need the militia as a backstop for chaos, as a place for those inclined to action to put their efforts. We need the militia to be a warning against a tyrannical government who would use any opportunity to expand it’s power and cancel your liberties. We need the militia to bring calm and orderliness to a panicked people and to those who would lash out.
From a legal standpoint, the militia in Virginia already exists and consists of everyone aged 16 to 55. In reality, it is made up of those patriots willing to stand together and take up arms in a crisis.
