As I told BillCA earlier, the militia today is a fiction residing in the imagination of the gun culture and nowhere else.
Well, it resides in the constitution, TG. You can say all day long it doesn't exist, but there it is in the second amendment. And you can bet your bottom if it were truly needed, as in the case of a cataclysmic disaster, the states would raise it from the dead in a New York minute. So let's not erase it from the bill of rights just yet, shall we?
I do agree with you about the more pressing, present danger of voter apathy, and would add ignorance, misinformation to the mix.
