Here is my answer to the commie lib retard who comes back with that. The educated among us know that the Bill of Rights belongs to the people of the United States. The Bill of Rights prevents the government from violating the peoples' God given rights. The Founding Fathers would NOT have wasted their time guaranteeing that the government would always have the right to form a National Guard. That's just moronic stupidity to think that. IMHO.
“Well regulated” at that time meant to be in good working order - as in a “well regulated” clock. Not to have a bunch of laws (regulations). There was no standing army - but all able men were to be able to grab their weapons of war at a moments notice.
