Re: "Original wording"
On this, you may be misremembering the phrasing of the 2nd.
The exact text is:
"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."
Whilst it does mention 'Well regulated militia', it is more in the sense of a preamble. The money shot is the phrase "... , the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed".
If the framers had intended that "the people" should only be those who were members of a militia force (essentially a state army) they would have said so, something like:
"The right of the states to keep, arm and maintain well regulated militia forces shall not be impinged'.
But they didn't - they granted the right to "The People", without qualification.
To those of us on the outside looking in, it appears mad - but that's what it says and it isn't likely to change.
