I believe you are referring to the Dick Bill of 1903 which separated the Militia into two groups - the organized militian known as the National Guard and the reserve militia.

[url]www.guncite.com/hci2nd.html[/url] "Drastic changes in the nature of the militia since colonial times have virtually guaranteed that reasonable regulation of the private ownership of firearms will not offend the Constitution. The colonial concept of a citizen military force using firearms owned by the militiamen disappeared with the 1903 enactment of the Dick Act, ch. 196, 32 Stat. 777, which provided for an organized militia to be known as the National Guard, to be equipped and armed through federal funds and subject to the shared control of the states and the federal government. Although all able-bodied males between 18 and 45 are designated members of the "unorganized militia,," 10 U.S.C. § 311 (1982), such persons are neither supplied arms by the federal government prior to a call to National Guard duty nor are they required to furnish their own arms. In addition, no state requires its citizens to supply their own firearms for service in a militia."
