Doesn't seem like one of the militias known for extremism (yes, there are multiple militia's in MI) or the writer knows nothing about Michigan Militia's. There are some that do training and exist primarily to offset the crazy ones, here. Michigan has common sense firearms laws (as in a hell of a lot of safety restrictions - this isn't GA), and there's nothing crazy about this. It's public land, and they had a range, they aren't randomly firing. Seems like they may not have been truthful about informing people prior, or maybe the officials are feigning ignorance to look good to the media, or someone failed to relay the message. In MI, any and all of those cases are possible. (and I am not even going to bother reading the comments of people getting all worked up over this).

[Link: www.mlive.com...] more information on a few of the rules in this article... that pretty much says the same thing... not sure why they needed two for the same incident.

Vigilante cowboys are dangerous. They are training to respond to "Terrorism" in an area where Terrorism is just not going to happen... unless of course it's a militia group.

Lol these people think they are so oppressed by the guvmint/poor me, they should name themselves the Dearborn Volunteer Militia for a day and see what comes of it.

They aren't vigilantes, as they have not broken or advocated breaking any laws. Unless and until they do that, they have a right to legally fire those guns in a training session. Yes, they're right-wing, but I see no evidence of danger.Being armed and able to fight in a organized fashion is not proof of hostile intent.

Contrast their procedures against a properly-run fire and maneuver course on a TRADOC range. They're legal and idiots.

yes but live ammo, in woods used mainly for other recreation, without having a safe, marked off training area? now I'm all for legal gun ownership, and all for some training with that in your spare time, if that takes your fancy, but isn't this just a bit hazardous to others?

(on the other hand, given the apparent prevalence of such 'moderate' militia groups, would it perhaps be economically viable to rent out some land somewhere safe for such purposes? hell, given the population density in most of the US I can't imagine there isn't a few hundred acres or so that could be used for just that... everyone happy)

Different militia groups could achieve realism and efficient use of your proposed ranges by conducting live fire force-on-force.

Yes it's their right, and it's my right to criticize the freaking clowns. If there's an emergency I do not want these bozos anywhere near my vicinity.
