Link: Militia and the Rule of Law

The Small Hold - Will Not Go Down Without a Fight: Militia and the Rule of Law
So just what is the Militia? Well that is an interesting question that varies not only throughout history and geographical areas as a whole but even particularly within the United States depending on time period and other outside influences.

What some would call a militia at times was the only "military" some countries really had. To offset the cost of a standing military most nations attempted to rely on a militia configuration of one type or another to fill the gap requiring citizens to arm themselves according to their station, property owned and local responsibilities. In many ways it was a hold over from feudal obligations as well.

Go. Read the whole thing.
