Comma Sprinklers

As in, if only the Founding Fathers weren't such profligate comma sprinklers, we might have a more definitive understanding of what this phrase actually means:
"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."
I'm pretty sure they didn't have lunatics in movie theaters in mind when they wrote it up.
