I should have said the Second Amendment doesn't say. But still, if you are concerned that the militia will not be available for the purposes you mention, then you ought to raise those concerns with the government. Also consider if "we need to restrict gun ownership so they are better equipped" sounds like it makes sense, if you are hoping to use that argument.
