What about a loophole, in that if you are with an "organized Public Militia" ie: your local squad .....
that we are indeed training. Get certified instructors to do clinics, run certified courses, etc. and we should be able to get what we need to "train" with.:smile:
Although not specifically illegal the government may shut down such action quite easily... essentially with a stroke of a pen.
The organization of armed public militias is not illegal.. but neither is it supported by the law. ..
Having organized such a militia .. does not exempt one from any of the laws regarding possession or use or transfer of proscribed items such as replica firearms.
