You said "foreign invaders" and since I did not see what you were talking about (I didn't look at Nordyke for the specific quote) I assumed you were talking about invasion of a foreign army. I would suggest next time to provide the quote directly so I know what you mean.

As to our vulnerability to terrorists I have no argument there. However, I see that as a LE job and not one for an unauthorized untrained miltia. I would be concerned about a "citizen militia" trying to do a LE job and getting caught inbetween the two and causing needless havoc.

And generally untrained and unorganized to resist much more than attacks against their direct person. But I do support RKBA and CCW very much so do I think that helps us in general? Sure, but that is not a militia.

I would talk to your state government then and see why they won't raise one. They can if they wish. Why do you think they don't?
