Far from it!!!!!
The Militia are the Minute Men(and women)
We the people of all ages, color and creed, are the first line of defense until reinforcements can arrive.

If they make it past our military might, the militia will be a gnat to deal with.
This isn't 1776 America....just ask Kim Jun Il.

Personally, I believe that people who think in terms of "the last line of defense" are likely somewhat wacko to begin with.

Unless UFO's come out of the sky I don't think the US has anything to worry about.

Although on seeing the NRA and Militias, Aliens would indeed turn back to their own planet having concluded that there is no intelligence life on earth.
Aside from the aliens (lol), no I don't suspect any foreign army would attempt such a fools errand to try to invade the mainland United States. 2 huge oceans and two large and relatively friendly countries on either side make it tactically very difficult. It's nothing like the middle east or Europe (historically) where one can find themselves surrounded by hostile states.

It specifies who the militia are, broken into 3 divisions. All The People. The national guard(State) regular militia(public) and the Military(Federal).

The fact that we haven't been contacted is sufficient proof that the aliens are far more intelligent than we imagined.

It is unlikely that we will have a full scale military invasion.
So if the threat is internal...say a bunch of home-grown armed and dangerous Timothy McVeigh wannabes or Bundy-esque halfwits..."We the people" should rush in and take them down? And who decides? Who gives the order or names the target?

Are women excluded from this "militia"?

Whats this we stuff? You would wave a white flag. Me personally, if I had to take up arms in defense of our country I would.

No doubt liberals would be asking what benefits the invaders offered.

You must be a wise assed , snot nosed kid to make a statement like that. Wait a few years and you will turn into the stereotype you described LOL.

Actually I think anyone that joins up with a militia to fight a tyrannical government is just pi**ing into the wind. You don't think the FBI, ATF or whatever alphabet gov't agencies that keep track of potential threats don't have MOST militias on a watch list?

A few dozen LONE WOLF types that have stayed under the radar will do more damage than all the organized militias in existence. Remember this: If two people or more know a secret it is no longer SECRET.

Those are fighting words. As for me....

Beer belly? Check.
Camouflage wearing? Nope
Teeth missing? Nope, got them all. 1 cavity in my life.
Tattoo? Nope -- can't stand them
Emotionally stunted? Nope
Intellectually challenged? I'll put my IQ up against yours.
