I understand “the shall not be infringed.”

My understanding it’s illegal to shout fire in a theatre. A judge recently ruled pointing your finger at some one like a gun is disturbing the peace or disorderly conduct and a lot of people here said “hades yeah” it is.
Shouting fire in a theater in not illegal. Shouting fire in order to cause a panic and cause people to get hurt while trying to evacuate the building is illegal.
Pointing your finger at someone like a gun is not illegal. But doing so to embolden a threat could be illegal or could cause someone to defend themselves against you.
The intend matters.

Legal concealed carry was sold to the Texas legislature because it would allow people to defend themselves, if another Luby’s happened.

We let them down, there were three mass shootings and there were no LTC’s to stop it. ( yes the church shooting was stopped by a citizen with a gun ) The fourth in Texas was a gun free zone, not our fault.

Walmart has always been very good to us and we weren’t there to stop it.

They have reacted. Moderately. They still allow us to conceal carry.
You had one part correct, that concealed carry was passed to allow people to defend THEMSELVES. That's the keyword here. We have a right to protect ourselves. We carry so that we can protect our loved ones and ourselves. If we can protect any others along the way while still protecting our love ones, that is a plus. We let none down. Conceal carry does not exist to protect the public. That is the job of our first responders.

We let our loved ones down if we fail to protect them. We let our loved ones down (along with all free Americans) if we let more of our rights be taken.

Stop twisting things and stop sounding like our lovely left neighbors. Let's stop picking fights with each other here too. :mad5
