Interstate commerce is both natural and necessary. Congress and the Courts cannot impede this.This is a matter for the states.There is also a scotus ruling giving the states say in interstate commerce in the 19th century,ie,the decision is from the 19th century.

Under the 2nd Amendment the militia is "necesssary".The Constitution provides for the army and navy.As pointed out the militia is to be called out for insurrection,invasion,or to enforce the laws of the Union.

 How was it possible then that the "state militia" became the national guard? There is no authority to do this under the Constitution.

 It seems that the The Militia Act or Dick Act is unconstitutional in my opinion.It has also been charged that it took the militia out of the hands of the Governor less he use it for agression.The same argument can be turned and stated what is to keep the federal government from turning against the now defenseless states and use military for agression.The States now have no militia which under the Constitution they can have necessariy for them to maintain their freedom. And I ask against whom.Certainly not from other States but the Federal Government. This insurance was taken away with the Dick Act under false pretenses.This was another sleezy ploy to take away States Rights beginning over a century ago and even earlier.

  It would seem the creation of a National Guard from the State Militia is a ruse to take from the states their  militia.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,

 The word necessary carries significant weight. It was for the security of the State not for being sent oversees.

Congress is to provide for

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions; There is no authority to nationalize since we have an army and navy and need protection at home.

 If this Dick Act is unconstitutional then the Governors,if they have the nerve,can prevent this.And if they don't have the nerve to prevent at leasst expose this ruse for what it is on a wholescale and frontal attack.

 There is no national guard but the state militia which doesn't have to comply at all with this act.
