When Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and certain Democrats in the House of Representatives, promise to push for more gun control in January 2013, they overlook four important words: "shall not be infringed."
These words form an integral phrase in the 2nd Amendment, and speak to our Founders' intent that the U.S. government not "infringe" on the peoples' God-given right to keep and bear arms.
Consider the text of the 2nd Amendment:
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.
