You could, I suppose, apply a different definition to "militia". But the Second Amendment says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms cannot be infringed, no matter what you say about the militia. So whatever you wind up with as a "well regulated militia", the people have to have a right to keep and bear arms so you can wind up with it.

I think it's fair to say that people in America are "well armed". In your opinion, do we have a "well regulated militia"? If so, in what way is it "well regulated", effective, and to what purpose?
