7. USC 10.311 places all males 17-45 not in the armed forces in a militia.
Therefore, the militia is well-regulated, as its composition is defined and codified under US federal law.

Therefore, it is your responsibility to procure arms and training suitable to your participation in it if you are ever called up.


Section 311. Militia: composition and classes

(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

(1) the organized militia, which consists of
the National Guard and the Naval Militia;
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists
of the members of the militia who are not
members of the National Guard or the Naval
