So the 2nd Amendment does allow for infringement for the security of a free state.
It is not an infringement if that person has already given up their constitutional rights by committing a crime which requires their right to liberty to be abrogated. In your scenario, someone saying Im sick of you idiots, Im going to shoot you all has not actually committed a crime unless he is pointing his gun at them when he says it - in which case, having his gun taken away will be the least of his worries.
