This question is a straw man that just won’t go away.

The purpose of the founders as authors of our Constitution is perfectly clear to anyone who bothers to learn the common tongue of the day. Well regulated simply means well equipped. The militia clause was inserted into the Second Amendment to provide the new government the authority to require citizens to own and maintain arms necessary should a call for the unorganized militia become necessary.
