Every citizen of age is a member of the militia. Militias have the right to trained fighters. The reason we have to re-authorize the military every
two years is because this nation was never meant to have a standing army. We ALL can be called up and ordered to serve in a time of emergency. If we
had no standing army we would not be in the mess in Afghanistan right now. Women want equal rights, then they should be prepared to fight in any war.
Equal means equal.
As to the wandering stuff, there is no constitutional authority for it. It is just so extremely frustrating trying to enjoy nature in this state (NC).
You can't go to parks because they are all overcrowded and run down. You cannot have peace in the woods at all. You cannot fish because the lakes and
rivers are either private property or so full of people the fish have been gone for years. Without a boat the lakes are useless. We have several
rivers that have no public access. The few you can get to by bridges have "No Trespassing" signs for a mile past the bridges. It is a matter of
being a human animal and bring so cut off from nature that one cannot enjoy it at all. I can't see how merely walking in the woods could be a crime
nor can I understand how people can be so evil that they will not allow anyone to roam. I don't mean in people's back yards. Just land that is not
being used. I would not make hunting, camping, digging, or anything else legal except for walking peacefully in the woods. I am Cherokee. I must be
alone with nature at times and it is simply not possible here at all. That is a crime against God and man. Your "property rights" should not allow
you to fence off and post very single acre of God's world. It is as wrong as murder because it kills me inside to never be allowed into nature.
