WHY did the framers of the Constitution choose the word “INFRINGED” for the Second Amendment?

Veterans Today

It is time that EVERY American fully understood this word-choice. In the days of the framers, they used to write on starched linen, that was made with tightly woven strands/threads then heavily starched to make it stiff and hold it together, so it could be written upon.
They wrote that: “The Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be INFRINGED”, because, if you pull out one of the threads, it causes a fringe on the document, and each thread removed creates a bigger fringe, until there is nothing left, except a pile of threads and no document.
