On state defense forces...

This page that I found over at Instapundit shows that the states still have essentially their own militias that can't be mobilized federally like the National Guards usually are. They mentioned those states that have their own militias, and even noted one that only exists on paper.

Illinois even has one that only exists on paper apparently. It was reauthorized by our Ousted governor Rod Blagojevich believe it or not. The Illinois Naval Militia existed starting from 1893 and then disbanded by 1988, however, reauthorized by then gov. Blagojevich in 2006 by executive order.
