I simply wish they'd been clearer in their intent
Their intent is clear, if you're a student of history. There are tons of writings from various founding fathers that make the intent of the 2A absolutely clear. No one back in the late 1700's would have mistaken what the intent was.

Now with the Liberal's "Living, Breathing Document" theory of the Constitution is there any question on the meaning of the 2A. Why do you think it took over 200 years to get a SCOTUS ruling on the intent of the Individual Right clause in the 2A? It's because only since the 1930's (NFA) has there been a lot of people questioning the intent. Prior to that, it was crystal clear what it meant.
