Militia Field Day 2010

Gawker posted a semi-decent article about The Michigan Militia's annual Field Day. The event included training, coordinating, shooting events and BBQ (with Kosher and vegan options!!). The article focuses on some upstart group not heavily involved with the larger more organized groups (probably because the more smarter groups wouldn't indulge journalists).

The article, along with the militia's own website, seem to indicate a distancing of the movement from Christian fundamentalism. If the Kosher and vegan meal options are any indication, perhaps the entire movement/mentality is shifting. (NPR reported on this to some extent.)

"They are anti-war and anti-Patriot Act. The Sons of Liberty sounded like leftists who liked guns."
