I'm just thinking this out, so don't take any of this as hard and fast.
With firearms, there certainly is a level of trust involved. By fully recognizing
the right to arms, society is trusting that those who choose to bear arms are going to use them responsibly and not hurt those who choose not to bear arms.
There is that Heinlein quote that a well armed society is a polite society.
I am reminded of the scene in Unforgiven when Clint Eastwood shoots the saloon keeper and Gene Hackman calls Clint out for shooting an unarmed man. Clint replies, "If he is going to decorate his saloon with my friend, he should have armed himself."
