Most gun control advocates are calling for responsible measures to try to make it safer, balancing the rights of responsible gun owners with legitimate safety concerns for the population. As with any complex issue, the devil is in the details so compromise is necessary.
Second 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
Infringe: Act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on.
if your "responsible measures" in any way LIMIT or UNDERMINE the ability to own a firearm... guess what? You are indeed disregarding the second amendment.
