The second amendment makes no requirement of militia membership in order for an individual to keep and bear arms without infringement from the government. Furthermore, when a militia is formed there is no regulatory body designated though history would suggest that when the militia preserves a free state against the forces of the existing state, as was the case in the Revolutionary War that immediately preceded the adoption of the US Constitution, the existing government can hardly be expected to regulate the militia that is disposing of it. Regulation of each militia would therefore appear to fall to the militia itself and whatever regulations that particular militia adopts would be limited to the members of that particular militia with no application to individuals who choose not to affiliate with that particular militia.
What makes you think World War I ever stopped? As Clausewitz said, war is simply one form of politics and politics never ended. Nationalism has nothing to do with it. World War I broke out when one family, the grandchildren of Queen Victoria, who had recently attended her funeral in 1910 together, were King, Kaiser and Czar of the belligerent powers. They had personal contact with one another that they maintained with one another during the war they were unable to prevent. The war began and continued because international financial interests (the same ones who passed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913) had a financial interest in enslaving the taxpayers of the world to national debt that has been maintained and expanded ever since.
No, nor should it. California, and Chicago are poster children for infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms without infringement and have demonstrated that their unconstitutional "laws" only serve to provide unarmed victims for those who ignore these "laws".
“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
