15. Dude, it doesn't say you have to own a gun. Just that you're in the militia by law.

You aren't going to be arrested or fined for not owning a gun, but if the US ever calls out the unorganized militia (which it won't, barring invasion from China), then they can point to that statute when you go "Who, me?"

Yes, the law is old and will probably never be used. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It has a purpose, and that purpose is to specify you, a 40 year old male, as a member of the militia.
