Interesting you mention militias , that is a subject within itself , those people cover the entire spectrum . Some groups are strict constitutionalists , while others are not much more than redneck thugs , and you wouldnt want those guys in charge of leading a donkey down the grand canyon , and all have most likely been infiltrated by the feds . Look at what happened in Ukraine in the early stages , the militias were called up to protect their neighborhoods and towns , they had the same general goal which was to get the army out of the area ………………..but they didnt talk to each other , and as a result , there were a lot of times that militia groups were shooting at each other . Theoretically , if the government did break down to that degree , it would be a serious problem on a lot of levels . The motivations and goals would be all over the place .
