26. However, you cannot infringe on the second amendment to provide for the public safety.

 

However, this does not usurp the clear intent of the Constitution to provide for the public safety.

However, you cannot infringe on the second amendment to provide for the public safety.

The government is limited in the things that it can do to provide that public safety. According to the Constitution, the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Not to provide for public safety nor any other reason.

There are many things that the federal government could do to "form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty" that are not allowed by the US Constitution.

Stop and Frisk, for starters. Listening in on all electronic communications without a warrant, for seconds.

The government does not have carte blanche to provide for the public safety, and the right to keep and bear arms is specifically noted as "shall not be infringed".
