>The second Act, passed May 8, 1792, provided for the organization of the state militias. It conscripted every "free able-bodied white male citizen" between the ages of 18 and 45 into a local militia company. (This was later expanded to all males, regardless of race, between the ages 18-54)
>Militia members, referred to as "every citizen, so enrolled and notified," "...shall within six months thereafter, provide himself..." with a musket, bayonet and belt, two spare flints, a cartridge box with 24 bullets, and a knapsack. Men owning rifles were required to provide a powder horn, 1/4 pound of gunpowder, 20 rifle balls, a shooting pouch, and a knapsack.
If something like this existed today, what kind of gear would it require us to own and what would you make your kit out of?
it would probably be
>Armed with a dragon dildo and one pack of cum lube
>for rectal wreckage every time we, the federal gov, want to trample on your rights
naw, but seriously, if we were as based now as we were then
>AR 15 for interchangeability with milsurp
>1000 rounds of 5.56
>a musket or rifle
AR-15 in 5.56 compatible with milspec parts
>bayonet and belt
Self explanatory, just get a combat knife and a sling
>two spare flints
Probably the equivalent of a cleaning kit I guess
>cartridge box with 24 bullets, 1/4 pound powder, 20 rifle balls
Not sure what the modern equivalent would be in terms of actual numbers, but have some loaded magazines for your rifle.
>knapsack, powder horn and shooting pouch
Backpack and chest rig
Some kind of helmet would probably desired, maybe some kind of body armor if they wanted to be really thorough.
I'd probably have a basic AR-15, with a nato bayonet, medium Alice pack and a Chicom type 81 chest rig because I'm a poorfag. Probably a surplus metal helmet.
What are the chances that in the event where militia units would have the be activated on US soil that we'd still have our cellular networks in tact for the purpose of using phones as GPS? Also signal can be spotty outside of cities depending on the area.
I'd rather have a real GPS than use my phone one.
>total withdrawal from a territory and ceding it is not defeat
You're right, you didn't, Britbongia.
Its called the draft, everyone will be drafted. Nobody will be in citizen militias except older people and disabled people. Except all those in the state militaries and the federal governments military, of coarse.
In case of a civil war It will never come down to American armed civilians vs a tyrannical government, it will be two or more factions of the government drafting everyone.
