"Well regulated", relevant or not, means well equipped and trained. Always has. Not sure what you think it means, you haven't said.

As far as "consequences" go, the states with the strongest laws have the highest incidence of violent crime.

You sure you want to trot out the fallacy that prohibition is effective? Didn't work out very well for alcohol, utterly failed for MJ.

The definition of "well regulated" has not changed, and Heller/McDonald specifically dismantle the infantile "militia" argument:

[T]he activities [the Amendment] protects are not limited to militia service, nor is an individual's enjoyment of the right contingent upon his or her continued or intermittent enrollment in the militia.

Furthermore, under US v. Miller, the 2nd Amendment covers arms "commonly used for self defense", which certainly does not exclude "military" weapons, especially since the 2A specifically protected state of the art (at the time) firearms equipped by infantry.

There is basically nothing about your post which is even remotely factual - just typical partisan whining.

This fine bloatware didn't merely act as an MiTM, it do so so incompetently that it exposed the user to basically any MiTM attack on an SSL connection(the root cert it used to sign bogus certificates was identical across every installation and effectively unprotected and the MiTM component would re-sign any cert handed to it, even an invalid one, opening the user to downright trivial MiTM attacks.

Many "enterprise" (lol) class proxies (deployed by corporations to "protect" their internal networks") do the exact same thing.

You have junk mail.
