Let's change the emphasis on part of the law cited by teeroux:

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.
Substitute "an offense" for "to create civil disorder" and this law reads very similarly to the law in my state. In fact, if you read the definition as it is written, unless the two or more people have the purpose of committing an offense, they are NOT considered a paramilitary organization under this definition, regardless of how much they might look like a militia.
