Who's In The Militia

In regards to the comment on my posting of July 26, 2012 entitled "The Asshat Has Spoken"  I found this over at Rawles place in the form of a link.

"10 USC 311-Sec311
(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."

There it is in black and white, if you are an able bodied male between the ages of 17 and 45 you are in the Militia either organized or unorganized, but one way or the other you are in the Militia. And ladies if you're in the National Guard you too are in the Militia too. I guess if you're over the age of 45 you're on your own. I guess the Grey Hair Militia is better than nothing. Or if that is the way you fly, lone wolf it.
This section the code should be used in firearms lawsuits over automatic rifle, grenades, short barreled shotguns and a whole host of other interesting items that the modern soldier has access to. It should also be used to overturn current gun laws.
