S3 stated that since the illegal mfg and possesion was done by a person NOT in the National Guard, he was not "in the militia".
So I take the stand and it is found out that I'm the XO for the S2 MI BN and I pretty much said, "The LTC is full of shit". "The militia act of 1908 created the National Guard, not the 2nd Amendment. The guns we have in our armory are on federal property, funded by the feds, stored by the feds, and if anything bad happens, under both federal and UCMJ jurisdiction".
As a little 03, I pretty much made his testimony look like a total anti gun fluff piece, which it was. I got called into the 06's office on that one, and was verbally counseled on working on my tact and candor on superior officers. The 05 S3 was counseled on getting a history book and reading it as suggested by me.
