The National Guard is in effect a part-time branch of the Army.

I'd say more like France's Gendarmerie Nationale, or Italy's
Carabinieri - a national level police force equipped to handle
threats far in excess of a typical city PD.

Of course the NYPD, with 33,000 people, lots of air, water, and
other specialized assets, is probably a good model. No gunships yet
(hello Blue Thunder!), but then the threat is not as bad.

OTOH, the BATF just bought 22 OV-10D ground attack aircraft.....
