2nd Amendment stuff and militia's
I saw this on my good friend Shell's facebook wall and I cut and pasted it. Thanks Shelldude;)
Just in case you encounter some dumbass who says the 2nd Amendment "clearly" applies to the National Guard *only*(and despite that there was no NG when the Bill Of Rights was written).
United States Code TITLE 10 > Subtitle A > PART I > CHAPTER 13 > § 311
MILITIA: COMPOSITION AND CLASSES (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are—
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
So if you're a male citizen between 17 and 45, you're in. Be ready.
