"being necessary to the security of a free State"

A well-armed citizenry is the best form of Homeland Security and can better deter crime, invasion, terrorism, and tyranny.

For reasons enumerated in the US and MI Constitutions, we “hire” public servants including police/sheriff, fire, and other public services. The Capitol City Militia fully supports these public servants, and only asks that they have integrity and continue to work within the confines of our founding documents.

We Train as a Defense Force ~ Marksmanship, First Aid, Understanding Laws, Security, Team Work, Reconnaissance, Self Defense, etc

-Participating in the Shooting Sports is a lot of fun, and teaches both safety and marksmanship.
IDPA, USPSA, and 3-gun are all recommended. The "Power Factor Show" is an excellent guide.
The most important thing is to get out there and shoot. You don't need a lot of equipment.
