Yes, indeed. and if EVERY citizen is armed and in the militia, who decides about whom to shoot? How do leaders, policies, strategies and targets get chosen? How do we armed citizens get our orders? And why should we follow them? Or do we just get to make up our own minds and kill whomever we like, on an individual basis... sort of like the system we have now?
