State Defence Forces

I recently came upon an article that led me to this:

State Defense Forces - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How exactly do these work? Are they full time "soldiers" or a paramilitary posse?
The State Guard of most States that have on is a military organization, designed to take over the duties of the National Guard unit's when they are called to active duty, etc.

Here is a link to my State's State Guard's info.
