Default What does 'a well-regulated militia' really mean?

The author goes into considerable detail, much of it being interesting historic, but also carefully shows the term "The People" as NOT itself also meaning 'the state militia', as for instance, the ACLU wishes to define it. This is clearly shown to be untenable. The anti-gun wordsmiths will continue to argue the definitions of words in the Second Amendment but to all reasonable people the meaning is clear, with emphasis on "shall not be infringed". The other continuing bone of contention is "well regulated'' - but that quite simply means 'well trained'.

The founding fathers had no clue how big the US would get. Well trained could be anything from military service to state 48. We are all well regulated by law now.
