Why does Obama need the power to take over state National Guards whenever he wants?

The constitution limits funding the military to two years at a time. This legislation sets up a domestic military that can be funded at four years at a time.
Judge Napolitano asks: Why do doctors in this new division that is being set up need to have uniforms and guns?
