No, militias are never useless. However they're unlikely to be used because the National Guard exists.

Yes.

>>28453682
I think the biggest issue though is leadership. To have a competent militia you need a good commander and lieutenants. There also has to be a clear goal and defined mission. Otherwise you've got a bunch of gun toting assholes drinking beer that complain about shall not be infringed.
>>
>>28453760
People who are a part of the militias that would actually do fighting beyond irregular potshots are usually military veterans and actually value fitness.
>>
>>28453781
The problem is you mix it in with people who are just there for the tin foil cred, and there's no unit cohesion.
>>
>>28453781
Yes, but a good portion of what I see in militias or militia like groups are fanboys and think they can cut it even though they're 300 pounds and pound twinkies like middle age business men pound underage thai prostitutes.

green beret and delta vets are the only ones who could form an effective militia

>>28453802
No you don't, a well-organized militia doesn't need to accept any fudd.

It's likely that if it ever came down to needing a militia, there'd be organized and uniformed fighters who would rather not deal with said fudd.

>>28453814
That's because you haven't seen any militias, you've seen pictures on the internet of fat dudes in plate carriers. There's 100 million gun owners in the U.S., you are thinking of a very small sample size.

>>28453828
What is guerrilla fighting?
>>
>>28453760
With organized leadership, you wind up with structured organizations. When you get that structure, you wind up driving away the people who just want to carry guns, drink beer, and shoot at practice targets.

The way I see our current militia working is that any civilian who fights will pretty much be cannon fodder without grouping up at rally points and going through basic training by the regular army officers. Sort of like third world places we go to and train up locals to do some of the fighting.

Yes.

Because it is a large stable, industrialized, country with a professional standing army & law enforcement.

Militias tend to be more useful in unindustrialized/unstable/decentralized regions or at least regions with smaller populations (i.e. City States historically).

Depends on who is in it.

Look at all these dumb as fuck responses.

The militia refers to, individually, the arm citizens which can be called upon or have been called upon for service, and those who are currently serving.

Militia = People registered for Selective Service + the Armed Forces
>>
>>28454001
The standing army has never been considered as part of the militia by anyone ever, save you here and a bunch of gun control advocates misinterpreting the 2nd.

That's conscription

That's BEING A FUCKING PROFESSIONAL SOLDIER.

Militia = non-professional persons armed for the duration of a conflict. Both military & paramilitary.
>>
>useless

Obviously not.
>>
>>28454079
There is no legal definition of militia as that shit existed long before the United States did.

Not to mention various countries have different takes on it.

That said: the common element is non-professionality.

As a concept, not entirely. In rural areas where small law enforcement agencies have to cover a lot of territory, there would definitely be some use for them.

In practice though, these groups tend to be composed of fat, racist assholes with barely or non-concealed contempt for the government. So in practice, yes, most of them are useless.
>>
>>28454123
>In practice though, these groups tend to be composed of fat, racist assholes with barely or non-concealed contempt for the governmen

The militia is ALL able bodied men ages 17 to 45
>>
>>28454123
>Barely or non-concealed contempt for the government

You say that like it's a bad thing. People should hold contempt for the government. It has seized power, massively. It conducts business in which it has no authority.

The people in Oregon, and the people who showed up at the Bundy ranch are heroes.

I'm not a suburb dweller, but that's the impression I have of them too.

They are probably all panic buyers driving up the cost of .22LR whenever Obama says anything even remotely related to guns (but who never actually does anything).

America is fat. This is well established

I don't see how this inhibits combat readiness. It might even be a plus in the event of a (highly unlikely) foreign invasion.
>contempt for government
Who can honestly say they *like* their government? I'm not talking about the form of government, the constitution, civil liberties, and all that good shit. I mean, who really likes the lying, corrupt, power hungry people who make up a sizable portion of our government? I sure as fuck don't.

I'll take the above described militiaman over feminized urban faggots whose only experience fighting is over who can virtue signal the hardest about pansexual wrongskin recognition.
>>
>>28453682

The National Guard are no less incompetent then any other militia: they're just the biggest of the bunch.

They've managed to kill more people (yeah, they're said "people" were whiny anti-Nam collage students, but still) than they've saved in their century and a half of existance.

That is the purpose of a military.
