Militia in your nation.

Postby Confederate States of California » Sun Jan 13, 2013 8:21 pm

In the CSC, every able-bodied man and woman must maintain an M1 Garand semi-automatic rifle with at least 20 en-bloc clips and at least 700 Rounds of 30-06 Caliber ammunition; and must qualify with it each year against multiple man-sized steel targets at 100-300 meters. They also must maintain an M1911A1 Semi-automatic pistol, at least 5 magazines, and at least 300 rounds of .45 ACP ammunition. All able bodied men (Except for those who object due to religious/moral reasons, etc.) are part of their local militia from age 16-48. Women may voulenteer for the militia as well. Men and women may serve past age 48 if they prove to be in good physical condition.

If you look at our Factbook, you'll notice the mention of militia men, they are equipped with their own weapons plus some ammo given by the government. They're only used for defense, but they're some of the best shots in our army

Militias in Saurisia are organized on two levels: first, there's the federally-organized militias which are all interconnected and are officially dubbed the "National Militia". Then, there's your regular old citizens-with-guns militias, the latter being far more common. The militias are meant to be a first-line of defense in times of national invasion and internal crises as well as being the people's arm should the government ditch the Constitution and become a statist nightmare.

Militias are banned in Ryaanistan, since gun control is very tight, but if a militia was ever needed (for the sake of invasion) it would be organized by the remains of the national government. Arms would be provided and it would be coupled with the national army to make up for loses. Guriella tactics would be the most common tactic used.

there are no militias outside of regular police and the gun clubs. of which the former keep a very close eye on the latter.

Every pure blood and honourary Titanisan is expected to serve in the militia and so forth Ak-47's are issued to every family and stored in local armorys along with heavier fire power. Furthermore for 5 out of seven days citizens are expected to report for 5 hours daily training.

Militias are de-facto banned because possession of weapons by civilians is illegal under the Private Weapon Restriction Act.

In a time when the interests of the government seldom coincide with those of the people, those with power maintain their own militias. Although you'd never hear the government refer to them as such, 'privately-controlled districts' are common in the southern Dinoni of Ilibria and Sombreland. The quality of their equipment varies.

As Vudnia has no formal military, by law all able-bodied citizens have a civic duty to be part of a militia. Police stations often have courses on militia-related activities.

I would imagine that in the event of mobilization preparatory to war, a good part of the process would include issuance of spare parts, extra ammunition, and even whole new rifles by the state using military stocks to Militia forces. There would also be competency tests to see which personnel had undertaken the legally mandatory process of marksmanship and routine test firing, and a major program of assigning extra training to those Militia personnel and units found to be delinquent in these responsibilities.

Remember, boys and girls, if the Militia is mandatory for the people, so too is the process of maintaining the Militia for the state. Better to let those willing to do so, do it voluntarily.

Militia service is technically voluntary in the Republic of Massena, and culturally and legally all Citizens of the Republic are encouraged, though not required, to keep and maintain basic firearms, kit, and training. Rifles and pistols chambered in 7.62x51mm and 9x19mm Parabellum are especially popular, as these ammunition types are often used by police and law enforcement elements.

Legally, if officers of the state were to "call up the Militia," they would be calling every man of able mind and body between the ages of sixteen and sixty, though a narrower age bracket may be requested at their discretion. Others may volunteer, and be assigned to serve in combat, or in support elements.

Needless to say, a fully mobilized Militia is not likely to be trained to the same extent as the Armed Forces, though anything is possible, and the average Militia force is not doing much in the way of offensive action. They are a defensive measure, a tool of national security and protection.

Local militias are very common throughout Tovarishchestvo. Due to a fear of right-wing insurrectionists and a very militant culture, people, particularly in rural regions outside of Khabarovsk, take pride in owning weaponry of all kinds ( most often government-issued AK-47 and SKS rifles).

There are only a few dozen civilians in the country legally allowed to carry firearms. However, most citizens receive basic training and can volunteer to fight in the event of invasion.

No militia. We've only an army 5,000 strong. But we're not unwilling to use nuclear and biological weapons if threatened with invasion. If an invader would want to invade they would have to be ready for total war.

Well, there is the Electrician National Guard, but that is more like an active reserve
If you are talking about real Militias, like citizens taking up arms, well, the last time we have seen this kind of thing in our country was on the Electrician Civil war, and they were used as Einsatzgruppen, death squads. lots of our older family members remember this, and we all want to stay away from this kind of stuff, forever.

In theory, all able-bodied men and women of Hippostania are part of a militia, as the Constitution requires them to take up arms to defend Hippostania when the country's sovereignty is in danger. In addition, Home Guard, paramilitary wing of the ruling National Party can be seen as a some kind militia/gendarmerie.

In White Sun there are a variation of Militia; yes, though a bit different from the West's perception. Comprised mostly of women who are defending their children rather than some unified force of citizen-soldiers is the closest thing to "Militia" White Sun gets to.
