Infringement of the inalienable right to bear and keep arms is occurring, and is being planned for by TPTB.
I am glad the Second amendment does not say operating arms, else we
would have to check out firing pins in and out of the local constabulatory.
Or some other essential piece of the firearm. That will be one of the next proposal.
The word fringe means the edges, like the fringe on a blanket or shawl.
Look at the third definition below:
1. A decorative border or edging of hanging threads, cords, or strips, often attached to a separate band.
2. Something that resembles such a border or edging.
3. A marginal, peripheral, or secondary part: "They like to hang out on the geographical fringes, the seedy outposts" James Atlas.
4. Those members of a group or political party holding extreme views: the lunatic fringe.
5. Any of the light or dark bands produced by the diffraction or interference of light.
6. A fringe benefit.
A marginal, peripheral, or secondary part: in reference to an arm that would be the magazine, firing mechanism, (semi auto, fully auto), ammunition,
how it is born (to bear) concealed, openly carried, loaded, unloaded, and how it is kept, (locked away, disassembled, stored away from children, with
barrel lug, with barrel plug, in a safe, in the trunk, glove box, away from reach of driver, in case, in locked box.
The infringement is and has been happening as there are laws, regulations and statutes that deal with all or many of these peripheral marginal and
secondary parts of the main issue: TO keep and bear arms.
Form 4473 prohibits felons, addicts and mentally impaired from purchase of firearms already. That is sufficient infringement enough.

the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.
PREAMBLE (TO THE BILL OF RIGHTS)
The conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent
misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public
confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.
(insert Bill of Rights)
The first ten amendments ( of the Bill of Rights) are "declaratory and restrictive clauses". This means they supersede all other parts of our
Constitution and restrict the powers of our Constitution.
There are people in this country that do not want you to know that these two sentences ever existed. For many years these words were "omitted" from
copies of our Constitution. Public and private colleges alike have based their whole interpretation of our Constitution on the fraudulent version of
this text. The Bill of Rights is separate from the other amendments. The Bill of Rights is a declaration of restrictions to the powers of our
Constitution. The Bill of Rights restricts the Constitution. The Constitution restricts the powers of government. The deception is that the government
can interpret the all of the amendments and the Constitution itself. Without the presence of the Preamble to the Bill of Rights this may be a valid
There is no "common sense" infringement on the bill of rights second amendment.
Yes mentaly disability, addiction and certain felons are prohibited from any and all firearms purchases with the existing laws as I type this, and
this is not infringing on the second amendment. It doen not infringe on the second amendment because it still permits all rational, reasonable law
abiding citizens to exercize their second amendment.
It does however limit and restrict certain individuals ability to legally exercize their second amendment rights.
The individuals history of behavior and actions, crime, addiction or mental disabled is public knowledge.
