I disagree.

I believe the 2nd amendment intended the existence of a "well organized militia", not an armed and unorganized general population.

Arguments about command and control aside, one would think that "well organized" would require, at a minimum, some regular training, a method of identifying militia members and required storage/maintenance standards like the Swiss?
