FL: Where’s the militia in 2nd Amendment?

Is the Second Amendment relevant in today’s society? Does the Second Amendment only give us the right to own a firearm if we are a member of “a well-regulated militia”?

The United States has not had a militia for 150 years; should it be reinstated and all firearm owners, including myself, be required to be a member of a militia?

"The right OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."

The "we'll regulated militia ...." clause is an exemplar, and while NOT unimportant, does not state anything about the right or who owns it, or how the government must relate to it.
 

Comment by: lbauer (9/26/2019)
It seems obvious to me that the militia clause was attached to the Second Amendment explicitly to enable the government to REQUIRE members of the militia, who at the time were all able bodied males between 16 and 45 not otherwise serving in the government, to own and maintain such arms as would be required in a militia muster.
To the best of my knowledge that definition of militia still holds today though should be expanded to all citizens whether male or female.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The maintenance of the right to bear arms is a most essential one to every free people and should not be whittled down by technical constructions. [State vs. Kerner, 181 N.C. 574, 107 S.E. 222, at 224 (1921)]
