Even this site's own moderator, Frank Ettin, who is an attorney, has stated more than twice that "all rights are subject to reasonable regulation." This is where I have to respectfully disagree with Frank. The Supreme Court has ruled that other rights in the Bill of Rights are subject to reasonable regulation, but the SCOTUS has never said that specifically about the Second Amendment. And the 2A is the ONLY right in the Bill of Rights that says right in itself that it is NOT subject to regulation -- "reasonable" or otherwise. To say that "shall not be infringed" means anything other than "is not subject to regulation" is, IMHO, intellectually dishonest.
