I couldn’t agree more!!  We should be exercising the militia here in the United States!


Those who are willing and able support and defend our nation should be encouraged, recognized, and trained to respond to threats of any kind, natural disaster, infrastructure failure, and or attacks, foreign or domestic, on our nation and our citizens!!

Federal excise tax levied on all firearms and ammunition is available for the states to seek grants and use it to build shooting ranges.  Indiana has beautiful public shooting ranges supported by this money.  I'm sure others do, too.  The law has been on the books for a very very long time.
