Which makes more sense?

"A well-trained militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed"

"A well legislated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed"

It seems to me that if you are arguing something needs to be well legislated, it makes little sense to include it in a Bill of Rights expresssly saying what the Federal government could not regulate. It also makes the "shall not be infringed" language contrary to your supporting clause.
