Most readers have missed that the second amendment addresses two distinct groups - the militia (citizenry) who are obligated to fight and die, on command, and the people (sovereigns) who have the inalienable right to arm themselves.

Pursuant to the Declaration of Independence, governments are instituted to (a) secure rights, and (b) govern those who consent.

So technically speaking, gun "regulations" upon the militia do not infringe the rights of the people.

If you were misled to assume 'everyone' was born into citizenship, with attendant civic duties, that's not what the law says. Involuntary servitude being unconstitutional, no one can have citizenship imposed upon them, at birth - unless they were slaves to begin with.
