Or: Is "Unorganized" the same thing as "Disorganized"?Move, Shoot, Communicate
Thoughts on the "Neighborhood Watch" model for the Unorganized Militia
Whilst perusing the Archives at Instapundit, I came across this post: Instapundit » Blog Archive » BOB OWENS: For ‘A Well-Regulated Militia,’ What Firearms, Gear, and Skills Should You Own?…
So, herewith some thoughts...
My assumption here is that the "unorganized militia" will basically be a well-armed, equipped, and trained neighborhood watch. Anything larger (city- or county-wide) would pretty much cease to be "unorganized."
So, what do I mean by "unorganized"? I don't think it means "disorganized" so much as "informally organized"; like a neighborhood watch, there will be people who take responsibility for things like putting together meetings, for example, but there is no official organization or hierarchy. To take a local example, the Seattle suburb Renton may have the "Renton Rangers", but they will not have battalions, companies and platoons commanded by colonels, captains, and lieutenants.
