3. Easier to include them in a state's unorganized militia because state and federal law already exists

 

for that. See State Guard Association of the United States (SGAUS) which is the more organized part of the unorganized militia.

That would also help Congress finally fulfill its obligation under Article I, Section 8, Clauses 15 & 16.

"{The Congress shall have Power} To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;
{The Congress shall have Power} To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;"

The Militia is already defined by law as
(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 areó
(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.

In one state the militia includes all people17-64 years of age.
