Militia movement meet Waiting for Guffman.
A Sheriff down in Louisiana has set up his own militia to do battle with terrorists and unspecified other “enemies” during periods of political unrest. It’s going to be a pretty wild time. Sheriff Larry Deen plans to arm the volunteers with shotguns, riot shields, batons, and a 50-caliber machine gun mounted on a “war wagon,” as part of “Operation Exodus.”
There’s actually video of the new militia training.
