It is the sworn duty of governors and state legislators—to provide for back up of professional first responders; and to provide for revitalizing, re-organizing, re-empowering and enrolling the State Militia—the country’s intended omnipresent constitutional “homeland security” in each State.
It is the sworn duty of governors, county commissioners, sheriffs and judges, and of local elected mayors and selectmen—to back up professional first responders, by the governor activating Militia or by others requesting that Militia be called forth when necessary in an emergency.
It would be the sworn duty of Militia commanders to call forth their Militia units when requested and/or when necessary in an emergency, if operational local-county-State Militia command structures (constitutional “homeland security”) existed as constitutionally mandated.
