The constitutions of many (most?) states, as well as the United States Code, Title 10, Chapter 331 state that the militia consists of practically everyone. The U.S. Code states that the militia consists of the organized and unorganized militia, with the organized part being the National Guard and Naval militia, whatever that is. All other males over 18 who are not in the organized militia are members of the unorganized militia. If the SC rules nobody can have a gun except militia members — well OK — we’re all in the militia anyway. Does the left get this?
Actually, that's not what USC Title 10, Chapter 331 states. :-)
Not necessarily. About half the states have a State Defense Force or State Guard (completely independent of the National Guard) that is state organized and reports to the Governor.
"If the SC rules nobody can have a gun except militia members well OK were all in the militia anyway."
True. But the second amendment only protects the members of "a well regulated Militia" and Article I, Section 8 reads that the militia will be organized, armed and disciplined by Congress with officers appointed by the state.
I don't think the "unorganized" militia meets these requirement. The State Defense Force does and I hear they're looking for volunteers. How bad do you want that M4?
