Quote:Police Chief Wants Citizens As ‘Reserve Force’ To Defend Against Feds

225"">?My friends, there is hope. Law enforcement officers at the local level are making their stand and they want you to be a part of that. While I’ve written on various sheriffs that have made their own stance to protect their citizens from anyone attempting to confiscate guns, I recently ran across Police Chief Mark Kessler of the Gilberton Borough Police Department in Pennsylvania. He wants citizens to join with his police department in building a “reserve force” that will aid his police force should the need arise to resist Federal authorities when it comes to the Second Amendment.Read more: http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/02/police...z2LB9Iz5a7

Exactly. Same town, same chief.

Sure you can. Perfectly legal.

I believe it states that the training can't be to create explosives, and can not be anti government. Not 100% on that though.

Not correct, you just can't paramilitary train for the purpose of creating a civil disorder.

A lot of townships have reserve police officers and auxiliary police officers. Whether or not they have to be ACT 120 certified I'm not sure, and I also don't know what they can and cannot do.

I would think not, because they would be sworn-in police officers and already be exempt from most of the carry laws. But IANAL.

EDIT: Nevermind, I thought you said ACT 235. I don't know about ACT 120, they probably would need that.

Got it, thanks.
