A Well Regulated Militia

US Constitution, Amendment II: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The gun rights people have largely or completely ignored the first two parts of the Second Amendment.  Clearly, the nation is failing by not adequately regulating the Militia.  I have a few modest proposals:

1)All gun purchasers would immediately be inducted to the National Militia, assigned a identification, required to undergo basic training, and assigned to a unit.

2)All members of the Militia would be be required to undergo monthly and annual training, and be subject to call up when required for service in our wars or other national service.

3)Dismissal from the Militia for disloyalty, threatening behavior or other indiscipline would require forfeiture of all arms.
