It would be nice to have a citizen's militia.
Unfortunately, Georgia's militia is a theocratic bunch. I use to have contact with them, but could not back those who believe in theocratic rule.
They didn't seem to appreciate it when I referred to them as the "American Taliban".
I would joing a militia. The Georgia Defense Force can't carry weapons, so they are out. I too, wouldn't join an 'extremist group', but there are a lot of people who would call ANY group of people with guns forming a militia "extremist".
