Perhaps you can elaborate as to how Supreme Court opinions regarding the fact that the Bill of Rights does not apply to the states, specifically the Second Amendment has NOTHING to do with the position that the Bill of Rights does not apply to the states.Your position is without merit because your "sources" you seem to think are some sort of authority have NOTHING to do with your position.
It is widely acknowledged that the first ten Amendments are considered the Bill of Rights. Is the 14th Amendment one of the first ten? Just asking...You say that the 14th amendment has nothing to do with the BOR yet the 14th amendment IS IN THE BOR! A thing inside a thing IS the thing.
Unbelievable.You say that the concept of Federalism was established by the Constitution yet the Constitution does NOT SAY THIS.
Do you know why the Federalist Papers were written? They were propaganda pieces to induce the people of New York to ratify the Constitution. They explain, in detail, the concepts and reasons for every part of the Consittution, including the concept of states rights, which I quoted from Federalist 45.You weasel, waffle, and duck and dodge to try to salvage your position on the basis of the Federalist Papers, yet the Federalist Papers are NOT THE LAW and are NOT THE CONSTITUTION. They have no legal weight at all.
Cruikshank hs never been overturned. In fact, it was quoted in the recent Heller opinion. Adamson is even more to the point. I suggest you read Frankfurter's concurrence. He thoroughly debunks the 'incorporation' fallacy.You keep mentioning Cruickshank as if it is some sort of Constitutional talisman yet Cruickshank has been thoroughly discredited.
Wrong again. Lower courts MUST adhere to higher court opinions. The Cruikshank opinion is simply that, an opinion on a specific case. The people can then determine how to respond. The Judicial Branch does not trump the Legislative and Executive Branches.You spout alot about how no court has the ability to "make laws" yet, again, you seem to think that Cruickshank is some sort of "law" that the Federal Government has to abide by.
No, no clue..IOW, your thinking is so muddled I don't believe that EVEN YOU know what the heck you're talking about.
