No, this is the National Guard. Not a militia. Learn the difference.
The National Guard is, in fact, a militia, however, it is a select part of the militia, not the entire militia. So you are right that there is a difference, but wrong that it is not a militia. The entire "militia" is generally synonymous with "the people." Those terms are used in parallel as the subjects of the Second Amendment's prefatory clause and its active clause. See: "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." Note the position of the comma that separates the clauses. The second clause actively states the right and guarantees it to the people as individuals, using the same "the people" language as the First and Fourth Amendments, while the first clause explains the rationale for the right. The key to a proper understanding of this language is the definition of a militia. Understood in context of the entire Constitution, which enshrines citizen participation in every aspect of our democracy, the Second Amendment guarantees the people a right to bear arms so that they can participate in the common defense. Compare the language in the Preamble: "We the people...in order to... provide for the common defense..." The language must be interpreted in the same way throughout the entire document. To do otherwise does violence to the framers' intent. We, the people, are expected to participate when needed in national defense, and we are guaranteed a right to own firearms individually so that we can use them to protect the government (surprise there). The National Guard is an extremely important part of our militia system, in which it is a great honor to serve, but it is not the entire system.

This lies at the feet of all t'thugLIEcans.... they are the ones that dispenses the funds. Everyday they hold up the bill authorizing finanacial help, with the soul intent of making our President look bad.
You can't think for yourself unless FOX sends out a memo.

NObama increased the number of troops in Afghanistan. Time to pull out all troops, equipment and money.

There is not one thing in the whole country worth one American life!
