At a time when militias may be needed more than ever, Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona has signed a bill creating a state militia that she could deploy at any time, and for any reason.
The bill, SB1495, creates a volunteer state militia, separate and apart from the National Guard Arizona Capitol Times reports.
“I’m very excited that she signed it, of course,”Rep. Jack Harper, who sponsored a near identical House bill, said this type of legislation couldn’t have come at a better time. “With the national funding for the National Guard on the border expiring in June, I would like to see the governor sign an executive order that immediately establishes the guard.”
Fantastic news! Texas is doing the same thing, in a different way, on May 11th. You can see it coming now can’t you? -Mort
