Again, that is not the purpose of the unorganized militia, it has no other purpose than the one I reported earlier. Did you take a look at the link I provided?

The unorganized militia laid out in the Militia Act of 1903 is not the well-regulated militia that the 2A refers to. You are mixing up militias. The proper historical lineal descendent of the 2A militia is the National Guard.

Also, IF and that's a huge one, such a militia were ever called I suspect the states would supply the weapons if for no other reason pure logistics.
