Is Training Children For Militia Duty Child Abuse?

Reuters has featured a very disturbing article and photo gallery that shows parents training their children for militia duty. These people feel that the federal government is moving towards socialism and gun confiscation. They have taken it upon themselves to prepare for what they feel is the inevitable fight that will occur when tyrannical forces come for their freedoms. Or at least that’s what they tell themselves.

Lets drop all the faux-patriot rhetoric and admit what they are really doing. They are actively preparing to fight and kill police officers, federal agents, and members of our military. Plain and simple.

That brings me to an important question. If these people decide to include their children in these training activities -training to kill soldiers- should that be considered child abuse?

I have to say yes. To me, if you and your posse of out of shape, insecure, and frankly pathetic wanna be’s want to go play guns in the woods, have a nice time. If you want to spout off about about how President Obama and the Feds are coming for your guns, that’s your right. However, you have the responsibility to give your children a chance at a normal life. This must be considered child abuse.

I’ll give you one last thing to think about if you disagree: If the members of the militias were Muslim, took children into the woods with assault rifles, taught them sharia law, and advocated the killing of our soldiers, would you still feel the same way? Probably not. If anything, the FBI would arrest them in a heartbeat on conspiracy charges.

Why do we let these loons get away with it?

I look forward to your responses.
