I admit, I'm a bit hung up on the "well-regulated" bit, and how it can possibly be interpreted to mean, 'anybody with a gun'. And if that is the only requirement, of what use would such a "militia" be if called upon to protect the State in this day and age? I think back to recent World Wars, and even those drafted were provided training and guns before being sent to fight. I don't recall, "must own gun", on any recruiting poster.
