Aside from prohibited classes being banned from the right, I don't know how much weight can be given to the public safety concerns when the right is to carry a lethal weapon.
Aside from the prohibited folks carrying, what public safety concern involves danger beyond what is already an inherently dangerous practice (at least, for criminals)?
Regulations that mitigate the danger like requiring training, proficiency, knowledge of force escalation (shoot, don't shoot) ought to pass muster. Certainly, inherent in the militia purpose was training, proficiency, i.e. well regulated.
But no regulation can address every public safety concern when the core of the right inherently involves the capability of lethal force.
