Check this link out about what the three types of militia are and where they can be used: The NRA's Trump Card: The Dick Act of 1902 1-800-Politics.com Here is the first couple paragraphs: The The Militia Act of 1903, also known as the Dick act of 1902 might be the saving grace to the NRA. It is the Trump Card Enacted by the Congress Further Asserting the Second Amendment as Untouchable. It should rattle a few Progressives in the House and Senate. Any gun control would be breaking the law! Why is it we have all these laws on the books and no one knows about any of this previous legislation? Maybe our government needs to take the time to know what the present laws are before they make any more! I am curious as to why no one has even mentioned this previously, Politician or News Media………. Maybe, because it does not meet THEIR ”Political Agenda(s)?” The Dick Act of 1902 also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities. The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia, henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and District of Columbia, the unorganized militia and the regular army. The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy. The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The President of the United States has zero authority without violating the Constitution to call the National Guard to serve outside of their State borders. The National Guard Militia can only be required by the National Government for limited purposes specified in the Constitution (to uphold the laws of the Union; to suppress insurrection and repel invasion). These are the only purposes for which the General Government can call upon the National Guard. Attorney General Wickersham advised President Taft, the Organized Militia (the National Guard) can not be employed for offensive warfare outside the limits of the United States.
