(Publisher: Text in CAPITAL LETTERS is added text to current law. I highlighted in Yellow the part I've paid the most attention to for almost 20 years...
 
26-122. Components of militia
E. The unorganized militia consists of members of the militia not
members of the national guard or state guard when organized. )

Referenced in SB 1083 is Article 16 of Arizona's Constitution

The first focus of my examination is if the bill has an effect on the 'unorganized militia' as defined in Section 1. Any attempt to place the 'people' under the control of government is a very very BAD IDEA. As it currently reads ANYONE between 18 and 45 years of age that resides in Arizona and at least 'declares their intention to become citizens of the United States' is part of the Arizona 'militia'

CURRENTLY
Arizona Militia in Arizona's Constitution
Article 16

1. Composition of militia

Section 1. The militia of the state of Arizona shall consist of all capable citizens of the state between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years, and of those between said ages who shall have declared their intention to become citizens of the United States, residing therein, subject to such exemptions as now exist, or as may hereafter be created, by the laws of the United States or of this state.
 

2. Composition and designation of organized militia

Section 2. The organized militia shall be designated "The National Guard of Arizona," and shall consist of such organized military bodies as now exist under the laws of the territory of Arizona or as may hereafter be authorized by law.
 

3. Conformity to federal regulations

Section 3. The organization, equipment, and discipline of the national guard shall conform as nearly as shall be practicable to the regulations for the government of the armies of the United States.

(Publisher: I'm looking for the original text of the Arizona Constitution as passed in 1912. In days Arizona will be 100 years old and I can't find the original wording. Below they reference the changing of the wording on Sec. 2 but not on Sec. 1.  Still looking.... I just ordered this book hoping to get an original copy of the Arizona Constitution.... everywhere on the Internet I look it doesn't show the original or that there were changes.  http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Arizona-Constitution-Second-McClory/dp/0816529442
 
Original Photos are blurred out ????
 
The best research done that we were in constant use of was Goff's work http://books.google.com/books?id=hKiLbwAACAAJ&sitesec=buy&source=gbs_atb
But there are no copies of the printed/online version I can find (if you find something that shows the original text of the Arizona State Constitution passed 100 years ago (Feb 14th 1912 - Valentine's Day) then please forward me the link to Publisher -@- FreedomsPhoenix.com)
 
FINALLY (bottom right of Page 33 in this PDF of the original document) - http://ia700409.us.archive.org/26/items/constitutionadop00ariz/constitutionadop00ariz.pdf
(Thanks to FPreader Ron)
About 10 years ago they legislature made many changes to the Arizona Constitution via the "referendum" process to the ballot and I can't even find a reference to those.
 
This all reminds me of a scene from the old Star Trek...
