The proposition:

A well regulated Transportation System, being necessary to the economic security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and operate Vehicles, shall not be infringed.

It’s essential to examine this single sentence proposition in detail, so we can fully understand what it means. The entire proposition is conveniently divided into four sections by commas. The first part of the sentence sets the scope of the proposition by specifying the objective, a well regulated transportation system. This phrase is immediately followed by some context around the importance of the objective. We find out that this proposition recognizes the importance of a transportation system to the economic well-being and security of the State.

Moving to the third segment of the proposition, we see the focus shift to identifying important elements supporting the main objective. In this case, the right of people to own and operate vehicles is identified as a critical component. The last segment neatly wraps up the entire proposition by prohibiting interference with the rights necessary to support the main objective of a well regulated transportation system.
