10 U.S.C. sec. 311 states: (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. Federal caselaw: "[t]he word "Militia" means a body of citizens enrolled for military discipline and comprises all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense." Owens v. Markley, S.D.Ind.1960, 186 F.Supp. 604, affirmed 289 F.2d 751. Seems pretty obvious to me that the Second Amendment applies to me. But luckily, I have polititions to help interpret this very confusing language for me. (Thank God Janet "Bulldog" Reno is gone). Right-to-Bear
