The right to bear arms should be restricted.
"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." The goal of uninfringed arms-keeping is the security of a free State, this goal weighs higher than reasons to restrict it.
