    LOL I found this in the utah code and though you guys might get a kick out of this. Read through it, and you will see why.

    Utah Code Title 39 Militia and Armories
    Chapter 1 State Militia
    Section 1 Militia -- How constituted -- Persons exempted.

    39-1-1. Militia -- How constituted -- Persons exempted.

    Oh, and one more thing.. Even if those idiots in Washington decide that the 2nd amendment only applies to militia, most of us are covered under this statute, right?

    I saw that a while ago when reading through the state constitution. Welcome to the state militia.

    Good that you noted the statute on the militia. I've long told people of it, though most don't really believe me. The Herald Journal (Logan) did publish an article I wrote as a guest editorialist on the topic way back in 1995 (May 28). It was the time of much public furor over the rise of the militia's nationwide and I simply pointed out that is was on the books all along. I wonder if the Guv even is aware of it, let alone has any plans to ever call us up! ;-)

    While it reads a bit funny to our PC ears, we should remember that historically the words "idiot" and "lunatic" are the legally acceptable terms for the mentally handicapped/disabled and the mentally ill, respectively. In other words, "idiots and lunatics" was a legal term of art for what we would today lump together as "the mentally incompetent."

    This wording in the statute then simply shows how long it has been since this code was updated or amended and any bill to amend this section would almost certainly also include some "clean up" language to modernize these terms.
