Why does it NOT apply to private citizens? Why can my boss/neighbor etc. infringe my God - given right?
Your neighbor has no authority over you. How exactly would he go about denying your 2A rights? Or do you mean a neighbor who doesn't want you on his property or in his house while armed? In that case, he has every right to declare who may enter and under what terms. If you want to carry anyway, you're seeking to deny his right to control his property.
Unless you are somehow compelled by law to go to his house, then doing so is voluntary. If you don't want to go unarmed, then don't go!
Same with your boss: a private entity --even your boss-- has no authority over you that you have not voluntarily agreed to. You're free to change neighbors or bosses at any time. You're not free to dictate to them that you're going to carry on their property whether they like it or not.
