  •  Not after incorporation. The 14th Amendment (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    gerrilea

    guarantees all rights protected under the Federal Constitution to be protected from state infringement as well. The incorporation, however, of that is piecemeal, and occurs in case law. Heller found that the individual right is guaranteed by the 2nd (and presented ample historical precedent for such), and MacDonald incorporated that right using the 14th.

    Furthermore, "explicit and obvious" are words used by people without citations to back it up. gerrilea has provided ample citations disproving what you assert to be explicit and obvious.
