re: 14th Amendment and "incorporation"
I am no great constitutional scholar like Obozo (gag) but the 2nd Amendment does NOT limit itself to acts of the US Congress (whereas the 1st Amendment states that "Congress shall make no law...."). In the 2nd Amendment the language is unrestricted and should not require any fancy "incorporation" argument about the 14th Amendment to apply to every governmental entity in the US of A:
"...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

The whole idea of “incorporation” is somewhat of a fraud.
Outside of the original 13 States, any state that joins the union should accept the rules. And the rules are the Constitution and all the amendments.
