You do realize that phrase in the 2nd amendment was aimed at the government, not private citizens don't you, it means the government shall not infringe on your right, it doesn't apply to the guy at the soda fountain or the grocery store etc. The bill of rights which includes all the amendments to the Constitution is there to tell the government what it may not do. Why would it be ok for you to tell someone you don't know that you do not want them to bring a gun into your house, and then object to a store owner telling strangers the same thing in his store? Now, that said, I don't like it either and so I don't spend my money in those places, however, I recognize they do have a right to say no inside their private property. If you want your rights respected, you have to repsect the rights of others.
