    I'll save them the $millions$ and answer that in the way it has already been answered through the course of our country's existence since the day of it's birth and probably before then:
    militia: any able bodied person over the age of 16
    well-regulated: in communication with each other in some way, allowing discussions of various topics. (which is ever more possible now with internet and cell phones than it was back in the 1700's)

    the term "regulated" being used in this context has absolutely no relation to the term "regulations". in this context, "regulated" is a much much looser version of the word "organised"

    I'll expand on my above post by quoting another member's post in a different thread:

    The Militia which the States were expected to maintain and train is set in contrast with Troops which they were forbidden to keep without the consent of Congress. The sentiment of the time strongly disfavored standing armies; the common view was that adequate defense of country and laws could be secured through the Militia -- civilians primarily, soldiers on occasion.

    The signification attributed to the term Militia appears from the debates in the Convention, the history and legislation of Colonies and States, and the writings of approved commentators. These show plainly enough that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. "A body of citizens enrolled for military discipline." And further, that ordinarily, when called for service these men were EXPECTED to appear BEARING ARMS SUPPLIED BY THEMSELVES and of the kind IN COMMON USE AT THE TIME."

    So in short, as applied to the 2A, if you are called up for service in the militia you are expected to show up with your own firearm that is in common use at the time. Is it just me or aren't these so called "assault riffles" that are being attacked common arms of our time??
