Re: Militias Anyone?
Under the Pa. Constitution, all men, (presumably also all women) between that ages of 16-65 are automatically in the State Militia. They can be called out with or without arms, placed under control of the Sheriff or other appointed legal authority for whatever duty is necessary for the safety and well being of the population. That is still in effect, because if the Pa. National guard is activated for Federal service, there is no other force available to assist the local law enforcement. They can direct traffic, aid people in time of emergency etc. BUT always under command of the Local Sheriff or other authority!
