The Dick Act of 1902 provided for the training part by creating the nation guards. State militias with access to money for weapons and training. I agree with your assertion that well regulated means in proper working order. I think the founders are turning over in their graves at the way that our language gets stretched. We don't have to change the words in sentences we don't like... we just change the meaning of the words we don't like.

Article 1 section 8 of US Const says congress cannot allocated monies for an army for more than two years. Take this hand in hand with the 2nd amendment language around the people being a militia, and you'll have an idea that the framers didn't want the expensive army we have now. They wanted the people to come together and form a militia as necessary.

We've really gotten wrapped around the axle on this whole electronic devices on aircraft thing. The local oscillator of an ordinary FM radio receiver is 10.7mhz above the indicated frequency... which makes 100mhz on your FM dial 110.7mhz... which meant there was a carrier in the middle of the COM/NAV band that aircraft use. So we had to (understandably) prevent FM radios from operating on aircraft. But thru the years it has turned into all electronics. It's like the "five monkeys with bananas and water" experiment gone wrong. We've gotten so wrapped around no electronics we forgot WHY.
