Shall not be infringed actually means shall not be infringed. The intention was that we the people could never be oppressed by force of arms by our national government, because it would not be better armed than the citizenry would be. Does that sound radical? It shouldn’t. That was how our republic was founded.
What about today’s more lethal weapons? Again, “shall not be infringed” was the intention. Our problem really isn’t the weapons. It is the catastrophic societal loss of moral character. No gun-banning laws will change that or stop people intent on doing mayhem from doing it. But law-abiding citizens still have the right to defend themselves. That right is recognized as unalienable and protected against infringement in our system of government.
