Where is that spelled out in any state or Federal law?
Paramilitary definition.

A paramilitary is a military-esque force whose function and organization are similar to those of a professional military, but which is not considered part of a state's formal armed forces.

compliments wikipedia

I would see how Paramilitary is defined by your state law. There is usually a definition section.

This is how my state reads. La RS14:117

ยง117.1. Paramilitary organizations; prohibitions

A. No paramilitary organization, or any member thereof, shall train in this state.

B. Whoever violates the provisions of this Section shall be fined not more than five hundred dollars, or be imprisoned for not more than six months, or both.

C.(1) For the purposes of this Section, "paramilitary organization" shall mean a group organized in a military or paramilitary structure, consisting of two or more persons who knowingly possess firearms or other weapons and who train in the use of such firearms or weapons, or knowingly teach or offer to teach the use of such firearms or weapons to others, for the purpose of committing an offense under the laws of this state or any political subdivision thereof.

(2) It shall not include a law enforcement agency, the armed services or reserve forces of the United States, the Louisiana National Guard, or any other organization that may possess firearms and train with such firearms, or teach or offer to teach the use of such firearms to others, for a lawful purpose.

If your state law doesn't have the definition written in the law there may be a general definition under that general section.
