'Well regulated' meant more than just having guns though, w/ the linear infantry tactics prevalent in the late 18th century, well regulated would have meant training as much as armaments as troops would have too be drilled to maintain steady fire while in lines, switch from a column on the road into a line for combat quickly, maneuver in formation etc.

Thats kinda my point, its an outdated law that people cling to who have no idea what the law actually says.

During the time that the 2nd amendment was written well-regulated was a term that meant "functioning correctly". Militia is the realized potential of the people to defend the state. This potential cannot be realized without the guaranteed and protected right of the individual to bear arms. You can call it an outdated "law" if you want but this has not been supported by the Supreme Court although they have done their best to avoid a definitive decision.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

When the Whiskey Rebellion broke out, the framers of the constitution weren't too shy about invading Pennsylvania and executing people w/ guns who were implicated in the activities, whether they were well regulated or not.
