    there are no natural rights, implied.

    the context is in the first clause.

    It doesn’t say the militia has a righ to keep and bear arms. It says the people have the right to keep and bear arms. Nobody is “ignoring” the prefatory clause. We just simply recognize that it is a prefatory clause and not the operative clause.

    You’re right - there are none implied. They are explicitly stated.

    Key word: “could”. I’m not risking my life to “could”. You know what does work? A firearm. And since I live in a nation where the government is explicitly forbidden from interfering with my right to keep and bear arms, I choose a firearm.

    Thank God our founders didn’t stop with the first clause, and instead continued with the second clause, uh snowflake?

    You can whine all you want - we have firearms and we’re not surrendering them.

    The first clause doesn't restrict the second.

    Doesn't have to be implied. Shall not be infringed is clear.
