Assembly Militias often meet before or after General Assembly meetings, but many also maintain a weekend schedule for training and to conduct exercises and conduct business unique to the militia.
All able-bodied members of the Assembly may actively support their militia in one way or another, either as active militia or acting in support, supply, communications, and administrative positions.
State Militias are manned by State Citizens who are members of the State Jural Assembly. Similar to the system of the Swiss Cantons, their focus is community safety and preparedness on a statewide basis. Members are taught firearms safety, marksmanship, first aid, and train in one or more specialties.
In the event of attack or natural disaster, the State Militia Commanders can call upon one or more County Militias for assistance. They can also call upon the “State of State” Militias, the State of State “National Guard” and the local U.S. Military Commanders for assistance. State of State Militias including the State of State “National Guard” are quasi-military or paramilitary organizations manned by State of State (Territorial) U.S. Citizens who are corporate shareholders and enfranchised voters.
The actual State may employ additional peacekeeping Public Safety Officers, whose duty is to uphold the Public and Organic Law in places and in situations where the people of the State (State Nationals) need protection or assistance. These local State peacekeeping forces have traditionally gone by a variety of names—Troopers and Rangers, for example. Like their counterparts, these men and women derive their authority directly from the State Jural Assembly and while on State land, they traditionally have absolute peacekeeping authority over everyone but the County Sheriff and in some States, the State Militia Commander.
Next Steps: Militia Special Purpose Committee
Vetting Committee – evaluates candidates and vets them for specific jobs within the Assembly Militia, seeks to encourage participation in the Militia, understanding of the Militia’s role, and support of the Militia’s functions.
Provisions Committee – acts as the Quartermaster for the Militia, evaluates needs and means to meet those needs for equipment and other provisions needed to carry out Militia duties.
Education Committee – develops tests and educational materials and programs to train Militia members.
Operations Committee – develops short and long-term operational goals for the State Assembly Militia, creates plans to implement projects and goals, evaluates Militia readiness, acts as oversight for the Militia, works with the Ombudsman’s Office to resolve complaints related to the Militia and Militia Service, works with the Peacekeeping Task Force to coordinate joint operations, when appropriate, with Constitutional Sheriffs and with Continental Marshals Service personnel.
