Once the Supreme Court finalizes its decision in regards to the 2nd amendment members of militias will increase substantially. The Supreme Court is expected to declare the right to bare arms as an exclusive right of each states militia. Organized militias in states like Montana and Wyoming are preparing for the increase in membership by setting up tables outside local gun shops and hunting stores.
Ralph Armand is quoted as saying, "Since most hunters prefer guns to bows and arrows we suspect that the majority of these stores' patrons will want to sign up as members. We just want to make becoming a member as easy as possible. No one should loose their right to bare arms just because they are not a registered militia member, but if that is what the Supreme Court wants then militia members they will get."
Smaller militias like those in New Jersey and New York are heading into the cities to find those new members. Individuals that were previously denied the right to purchase guns are expected to challenge laws forbidding them to purchase a gun based on this new ruling. The argument will state that the second amendment states that since these individuals are militia members the government does not have the authority to deny them this right.
Many states are trying to discourage militia membership since a list of so many armed men and women at the disposal of the people could undermine their own authority. Sources say that even the president himself tried to speak to the Supreme Court Justices about the matter hoping to pursued the court to allow non-militia members to keep their gun rights.
