Here we go again.

They're not the militia. They're an armed mob. The militia, as legally defined in Oregon State Law, consists of the organized militia (Military Dept) & the unorganized militia, the latter of which can only be mobilized by the governor.
The purpose of the unorganized militia is to augment the organized militia - the Oregon National Guard or Civil Defense Force. They are not their own entity to activate at their own whim. They are subject to State law -- just as the militia in the US always have been.
Again - unorganized militia are called up by the authority of the governor. The ability to use force is a function held by civil authority, not by a bubba and his armed buddies.

Words matter. Please stop calling them militia.

I always hate doing these PSAs because my mentions will be full of "constitutional militia" troglodytes for the next 72 hours.
