I am both not in the militia and well past that age. The tangent was simply comparing "People" with "Militia", my point being that while you cannot have a Militia without people, you can certainly have people without a militia. Interesting definition though. From it we can infer that the Second Amendment's right to bear arms is limited to able-bodied males 17-45 Guard members to 64 and military personnel. Presumably the latter two could even include females.
