"Shall not be infringed" is perfectly clear and unambiguous.

Some leftie idiot describing himself as a “retired machinist’s helper”(??)wrote a letter to the local paper claiming 72% of NRA members want Obama’s gun bans passed. He’s a frequent contributor of similar lies.

WTF is wrong with the 21% who think it’s not?
