There are more than 10,000 Three Percenters—heavily armed Second Amendment supporters who believe their right to own firearms is under attack—scattered across the country. According to the Anti-Defamation League, many members of this "extremist movement" have gathered into small militias and adhere to the unfounded belief that only 3 percent of colonists fought in the Revolutionary War. If a small group of armed citizens could fend off the British, the thinking goes, a militia can still single-handedly battle "tyranny" today—as long as it still has guns.

On the premiere of HYSTERIA, VICE goes inside the Georgia Security Force III%, a small militia in a rural part of the state hell-bent on defending the Second Amendment. The group's leader, Chris Hill—a.k.a. Blood Agent—explains the group's ideology, which is a vague amalgam of right-wing, anti-Islamic, pro-Second Amendment beliefs. VICE rides along as the group conducts training exercises, from live-round target practice to road blocks executed with guns drawn—all in preparation for the day someone tries to take the group's firearms away.
