  • Militia: It's Not Everyone.....By Definition.

    This American definition of militia is in keeping with the word

    The above is not to be taken too seriously.

      I've seen the argument made on this forum.  It's important to some people to claim that in addition to the organized militia (the national guard) there is a mystical unorganized militia that everybody is a part of whether they know it or not.  I guess the logic is the right to bear arms applies to everybody because everybody is part of a militia.

      There are two problems with this.  First, you don't need to be part of a militia for the right to bear arms to attach.  Second, even if membership in a militia were required for 2nd Amendment purposes (it is not), the unorganized militia doesn't really sound like the "well regulated" militia described in the 2nd Amendment.
