The Constitution requires the organization of the vast amount of people in this country in State institutions—the “Militia”—collectively referred to in the Constitution as “the Militia of the several States” in Article II, Section 2, Clause 1. The ultimate purpose being, in the extreme case, to enforce the principles of the Declaration of Independence. And in all ordinary cases to oversee and enforce the principles of the United States Constitution with legal authority. The Constitution assigns 3 fundamental security responsibilities to the Militia, for WE THE PEOPLE to provide themselves with “the security of a free State”, as the Second Amendment refers to it, by exercising their constitutional legal authority. So it’s different than people organizing themselves as a pressure group and lobbying their legislature. They have a perfect legal right to do that, but they do not have, nor can they gain, any specific legal authority in that process. Private groups calling themselves “militia” are not constitutional Militia because they are not formed under State statute and therefore have no legal authority. WE THE PEOPLE, by performing our Militia service are supposed to be functioning in a police capacity, in the broadest sense of “police”, to provide ourselves with security from any threats, the worse being rogue government officials who violate constitutional principles under color of law. If government officials did not commit criminal acts against THE PEOPLE there would be no need for the statutes that address them. The Constitution itself recognizes that government officials at the highest levels may engage in behavior that constitutes “treason”. Additionally, “the “security of a free State” to which the Second Amendment refers, would also include “economic security”— such as reinstituting a stable constitutional currency as the Founders outlined in the Constitution that prevents government theft, forced loans upon WE THE PEOPLE, and monetization of debt through the emission of what the Constitution calls “bills of credit”, which was a term of art for paper money.
