A city or town government is a city or town government, not a regional government. Today, parts of some states, such as Northern Virginia, tend to think of themselves as separate from the rest of the state (or the other way round) but there is no regional government. There are regional associations of governments buty that's not the same thing.

Do you suppose these private militias were what George Mason had in mind when he specifically said that militias were to be subject to government? If I were you, I'd worry about any private militias you might hear about. On the other hand, maybe you'd like to go out and start one. You could be the colonel, self-appointed.
