Militias should exist in many communities and be structured in such a way that would enable them to quickly and easily engage into cooperative efforts with local authorities to aid the community by keeping security and order during emergencies and provide other needed services that governments may not be able to do during emergencies. They could also help to repair or coordinate the repair of any infrastructures that may have been damaged during an emergency. Militias should be given the authorities of arrest and detention only during emergency situations. During normal times, they could work closely with law enforcement in other ways to help prevent and solve crimes.
Militia groups should be disarmed and neutralized if their philosophies or arsenals pose a significant threat to the security or well being of a community.
