State Fact Sheets

ICAP has created fact sheets for all 50 states explaining the laws barring unauthorized private militia groups and what to do if groups of armed individuals are near a polling place or voter registration drive. 

Is it legal to act as a private militia in California?


No. All 50 states prohibit private, unauthorized militias and military units from engaging in activities reserved for
the state militia, including law enforcement activities. Some, including California, also prohibit paramilitary activity during or in furtherance of a civil disorder.
