Yes. Well regulated. Tuned. 200 years ago, they did not use "well," essentially a synonym for "good," to indicate "abundantly," as you imply. Well meant well. Regulated meant tuned, adjusted. You regulated a mechanical device to ensure optimal function. Yes, the citizen militia should be well regulated. Only a fool would apply ridiculous twisted 20th century definitions to something like "well regulated" to twist the definition to mean "abundantly controlled by the central government."
