Yet 1934 and 1986 really... ((really)) feel like infringement to me. I just don't know anymore.

(Paraphrasing from someone else.) In the first amendment, the people means the people. In the fourth amendment, the people means the people. In the ninth amendment, the people means the people. In the tenth amendment, the people means the people. In the second amendment, the people means a government-sanctioned militia.

The people ARE the militia. There is no separation. This was stated clearly by the authors of the 2nd amendment and other statesmen at the time.

"A well regulated militia, COMPOSED OF THE BODY OF THE PEOPLE, trained in arms, is the best most natural defense of a free country." -James Madison


"I ask, sir, what is the militia? IT IS THE WHOLE PEOPLE except for a few public officials." -George Mason

One way to add extra clarity is to join a militia.

subordinate clause
what good does it do when a militia is needed and the people that show up don't have weapons?

It also doesn't really matter, a militia is anything that says its a militia.

I just started the militia of me, members include me.

"ending this now" implies that this was ever up for debate in the first place.
