I doubt he is... but he could be if called upon. It doesn't say "a well regulated STANDING militia". I believe the founding fathers expected that people would rise up against the government. Not that there would constantly be a standing militia (National Guard doesn't count as they can be mobilized not only by the state but by the National Govt) whose sole purpose was to defend the country against tyranny but would instead form when/if needed.
I don't think it is a huge leap in judgement to say that the founding fathers thought that through.
