Q: What does "Well Regulated" mean in the 2nd Amendment?

Does it mean regulated as in laws by Congress or regulated as in regular or in working order based on historical context?

Timothy Denison answered on Apr 20, 2018

Of course, it is a subject question open to interpretation but I would argue it is an equal interpretation of both. It takes progressive regulation by the legislature as well as progressive thinking and implementation by society at large.
