Idaho Militia Recruits In Twin Falls

An Idaho militia is searching for recruits in Twin Falls, asking for help to create a unit to defend the Idaho and U.S. Constitutions from “foreign and domestic enemies.” The Idaho Light Foot Militia sent an email blast to 36 potential Twin Falls members Wednesday. As of Thursday, however, no one had responded, said Craig Campbell, a member of Ada County’s Light Foot Militia. “There’s nobody in Twin Falls right now,” he said, declining to comment further. The militia is most active in North Idaho. It has 11 active units throughout the state and 13 “interested” units, according to a map attached to the email sent to potential members/Kimberlee Kruesi, Twin Falls Times News. More here.

Question: Are you comforted that "the militia is most active in North Idaho"?
