I might be willing to participate in something like that as long as they aren't all about .gov overthrow. I've always believed in training occasionally, but not out conducting security on public or commercial property. If someone had private land they wanted to do scenario training on, and they garnered group support from a preparation perspective, I'd be ok with that.
But the idea of a group that is prepared to execute government overthrow... I'll pass.
They claim they have good relationships with every local, state, fed LE agency out there, and they invite all of them to their events.... so who knows. Best way might be to get to know these guys and make a decision for yourself. Of course, that's what got Randy Weaver in trouble, meaning, you might get to know them too good before you make a decision... and before you make one, the LE is on you. Guilty by association kind of thing.
You have a good point.
I want to do my part and help out in any way I can, because if I make this place just a little bit better my family and I benefit from it.
On the other hand, with the feds doing some crazy things lately, I don't want unnecessary attention.
In a SHTF scenario, having a team and network of people trained and willing to help would be a huge benefit over being all on your own, but no one knows what kind of SHTF scenario will play out.
I've been thinking pretty hard about this for several months. Judging from history, not having a set of balls never got anyone anywhere.
there are plenty of like minded people in the fourm.
just get to know a few and network with them....
