	Consider that the word, "regulated", in 1789 had to do with setting of
standards, and not control.

	In New York, there is a group called the "Guardian Angels", which,
although they do not carry firearms, pretty much fit the defintion of a
"militia". While not everybody agrees with them, they do generally good
work, and attempt to cooperate with the state whenever possible.
