III Congress: A Call to Militias
I admit my personal experience with local militia units is almost nil.
I met a few members of OVM led by Sandman at Mercer, and what I saw was a group of Patriots who had their world in order. They would make a damned good poster for what the militia should be - and I should probably specify the organized militia. I'm not even sure if that is the proper language.
As a Delegate to this Congress, I would suggest every single Militia Unit out there that crushes the media stereotypes make formal, written and loudly broadcast offers to provide security at schools, or perhaps particular school events, whatever. Let the school administrators know, let the school board know. Let the town council and mayor know, and let the citizens in your AO know that you are ready to stand post in these dangerous days of aftermath when the odds of a copycat are highest.
Not only;y will you be offering a serious service, you will be putting forth serious goodwill in the PR department and helping push back against the stereotypes.
Of course you don't have the manpower to do too much for too long, but you can make noise and points./ You can even offer free "Threat Assessments" of local schools, help school administrators put together plans of action more helpful than "Hide in the closet until the Bad Man eats a bullet". Show them muster points and how to get there.
You get the idea.
There is a window of opportunity open right now.
