All rights are limited if there's a compelling reason. Shouting fire in the theater, laws against human sacrifice as a religious practice, etc. The 2nd amendment is no different. There are no un-adulterated rights, to use your term.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
