What does shall not be infringed mean in the second amendment?
It means United States Citizens, have a god given right to keep
and bear arms/guns. And the government CanNot make any Laws to
infringe this right. Like freedom of speech? Reality: The FBI does
a background check before you can buy a gun. You cannot carry that
gun anywhere, you'll get arrested and your property stolen. If
you're lucky enough to live in a state with consealed carry it's
expensive and likely will not issue the permit. See Above-the sad
truth is the second amendment is worthless, as thousands of laws
INFRINGE on our right.

You must have a license to a gun if you do want one. Technically there shouldn't be any rules against it considering the US constitution states that this right may NOT be infringed. Now is this fair is the question...
The Constitution is a living and breathing document through the process of amendment, which is difficult but more commonly through the process of interpretation. As the Supreme Court gets cases referred, (it is an appallate court, meaning only for appeals) they can interpret the wording of the Constitution so it best fits the opinions, ideals and political ideology of the Court. An example of this would be the wording of the second amendment. The second…

In other words, the 9th Amendment emphasizes the Founding Fathers view that powers of government are limited by the rights of the people. The Constitution did not intend, by expressly guaranteeing certain rights of the people, to grand the government unlimited power to invade other rights of the people.
Sorry, I won't even attempt to to decipoher the meaning of the 2nd Amendment. Brilliant legal minds on both sides of the argument argue their points persuasively and have yet come to no conclusion. That being said, it is my personal opinion that the 2nd Amendment DOES protect the rights of individual citizens to carry arms.
