Infringement of the inalienable right to bear and keep arms is already occurring.
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.
All of you are currently violating some or one of these many enroachments upon liberty.
So infringement does not strike the core issue of the arm, it concentrates on the peripheral, fringe, secondary aspects and components of the primary
right to keep and bear arms.
