  6. The states consider them militias, and the federal government consider them militias, so they're militias. Some of them even have the term "militia" in their name.
     
  7. Expanding on that idea... Militias are differentiated from a national army not by who controls them, but historically the terms of the service of the members. A standing army usually consists of members bound by some sort of contract, like an enlistment. A militia on the other hand consists of a group of people who don't hold their position in an armed force as their primary employment. They are called to action in times of emergency. By that definition (which IS the correct historical and modern definition) there are many militias that don't fit your criteria.
