the original law violated the Constitution
So does the current one FWIW. What part of:

Quote:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Or more simply. . ."the right of the people to . . .bear arms shall NOT BE infringed," is so hard to understand for politicians?

bear - (Dictionary.com) - to carry; bring

How could they have know in 1791 that some Americans, even with dictionaries would not be able to figure out what bear means?

Keep is a similarly difficult word. . .but for another day.

Of course, there are the other difficult words of people, right, infringed, arms, etc too.
