"I have a better idea. Let the national Militia be extended beyond the current National Guard, so that every male and female of working age who wants to keep and bear arms is required to join, and must accept and pay for training in the responsible use, proper maintenance and safe keeping of firearms."

I'm not sure I like his solution, but it's an interesting idea...

The leader of the Hutaree “militia” who was arrested and acquitted was elected to the unpaid constable position in his hometown in November.

Governors and local Sheriffs have always had this option. More of them should put out the call for civilian militia volunteers to work with them.

I'd sign up in a heart-beat.

Train them, certify them and put them to work and make the US a safer place.

Israeli teachers are allowed to protect their students with firearms.



They've had to do this since the Muzzies attacked an Israeli school bus back in 1970. More here about it.

The national guard is not the current militia as specified in the Constitution.

Can’t halt massacres until they happen. How do you prevent something like what happened in CT?

"I have a better idea. Let the national Militia be extended beyond the current National Guard, so that every male and female of working age who wants to keep and bear arms is required to join, and must accept and pay for training in the responsible use, proper maintenance and safe keeping of firearms."

Lord Monckton is thinking along the right lines but is misinformed about certain specifics.

First of all, the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right, not one dependent upon being part of a Militia.

Secondly, the Militias are the Armed Forces of the Several States under the command of their respective Governors and subject to being called up for Federal Service.

Third, the Militias are composed of the entire able-bodied adult male citizenship of each State.

Fourth, the organized portion of each Militia is what is currently designated the National Guard.

Fifth, the unorganized portion of each State's Militia are the remainder of the able-bodied adult male citizenship of each State subject to call to duty by each State's Governor.

Sixth, every State has the right to form additional Armed Forces under the command of the Governor, generally referred to as State's Guard, which are not subject to Federal Service.

Seventh, land-grant colleges used to be obligated to train male students in Military Science for service to the States in their Militias and Federal Service when called-up.

Eighth, all Militiamen were expected to maintain their own arms and proficiency for use when called-up for service.

Though Lord Monckton is thinking well, our Founding Fathers had already out-thought him. They enshrined the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right being a basis of freedom. And they codified the Militia structure from that for free citizens to defend freedom. What we have gotten away from is using that structure.

Because United States citizens are free, not subjects, and their right to keep and bear arms is an individual right, I instead propose that; States return to a program of actively training their Militias and State Guards. and, that those trained/qualified in the unorganized Militia & State Guards receive additional privileges.

These privileges can include but not be limited to; basic issue of standard infantry weapon, basic allowance of ammunition, limited reserve law enforcement credentials, exemption from all carry restrictions within the State, National CCW, free or reimbursed firing range training, unique vehicle license plates, preferential hunting licensing.

Finally, I propose that should the above provisions be adopted, members of the Unorganized Militias and State Guard be routinely called up for service in the same fashion as for jury duty. Because it is both a responsibility and a duty that We The People have too long shirked.
