A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a
free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall
not be infringed."
The phrasing is quite clear to the majority of all who read it
and understand the sovereign rights of States. It's only
"unclear" to those enemies of the Republic who disagree with it
and wish to eliminate it.

Consider this. Southerners sent their children to the Eastern
states to be educated, and had done so long before Lincoln and
Eastern bankers started the Civil War. Yes, the war was started
over money, not slavery.
40% of the slaves in the South were owned by free slaves.
Bankers weren't making any money from them.
While we're on the subject of constitutional articles,
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the
United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for,
and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and
I would submit to you that Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Nancy
Pelosi have committed treason by failing to uphold their oaths
of office as it applies to upholding the laws of the United
States of America.
