Basically, you're arguing that certain regulations are acceptable because the public good outweighs the unadulterated right to arms.
It doesn't have to be specifically in the second amendment if it is upheld by common law and the supreme court. Committing a crime , being arrested& convicted of a crime means you forfeit your rights (freedom...etc..) and always has.
