"A 'well regulated militia' was thus one that was well-trained and equipped,
not one that was 'well-regulated' in the modern sense of being subjected
to numerous government prohibitions and restrictions."

Reader comments about this quote:
A militia regulated by the government defeats the purpose of a militia in place to combat government tyranny.
This was not what the founders had in mind when they said:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
As it is obvious that we are less secure from our own government now than ever before in history, the founders clearly knew what they were talking about.

    Who ultimately determines 'well-regulated' anyway?
