    Then you got your Black Panther militia.

    There are all kinds of militias I suppose. When does a militia cross the fine line from good to bad and start being watched by big brother? I would think there are good and bad militias. But that would depend on who you ask I suppose.
    For the eighty billionth time, the milita was simply able bodied citizens. Your personal opinion of others doesn't change the right they are guaranteed.

    Where did I ignore it? I've addressed it several times.

    So, you are saying that we all are a militia????? I mean, we ARE able bodied citizens, are we not?

    I don't FEEL like a militia. Did I miss the memo?

    When's our next meeting?

    As per the Constitution...yes...you are. As more recently defined by the US Code...yes...you are. Unless you are:

    (a) The following persons are exempt from militia duty:
    (1) The Vice President.
    (2) The judicial and executive officers of the United States, the several States, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.
    (3) Members of the armed forces, except members who are not on active duty.
    (4) Customhouse clerks.
    (5) Persons employed by the United States in the transmission of mail.
    (6) Workmen employed in armories, arsenals, and naval shipyards of the United States.
    (7) Pilots on navigable waters.
    (8) Mariners in the sea service of a citizen of, or a merchant in, the United States.
    (b) A person who claims exemption because of religious belief is exempt from militia duty in a combatant capacity, if the conscientious holding of that belief is established under such regulations as the President may prescribe. However, such a person is not exempt from militia duty that the President determines to be noncombatant.

    2 types...Organized and non-organized. They don't send a memo...doesn't mean the definitions don't exist.

    Think how easily you can make rank. Sucks though that as the General you still have to empty your own trash. Oh...and the pay isn't all that great either.

    Switzerland has an actual well-regulated militia. There each person is subject to mandatory military service.

    Of course not! Funny, how "Free Speach" and "Freedom of the Press" have all adapted over time to include Radio, Television, and the Internet. Technologies that in no way were anticipated when the Constitution was written.

    But in this instance, the Constitution obviously does not apply. It only covers what were "guns" when it was written, and nothing else.

    Funny how some people think, how it adapts only for things they believe in, but is locked for things they do not.
