Your argument has been lost in many and various courts.
I would argue that any "State" regulation of arms is a violation of the 2nd, we are no longer "State" citizens there is only federal citizenship now.
You mean decisions on discrimination? Yes, I agree. The Court will have to address discrimination on housing and employment before very long.
I know this decision only applies to marriage but if the court is going to be consistent with this decision in the future....
Nope. Not unless permits are denied based on factors such as color, gender, or such like. The permit laws apply to everyone in the state, equally.
the issuance of permits to carry is not only discriminatory interstate it is also discriminatory intrastate of that there can be no doubt processes vary from towns to cities and from counties to states.
What? I guess I'm discriminated against because I can't afford to buy a Tesla.
I would say the requirement for any fee to carry is discriminatory, it unfairly burdens the poor, which tend to be minority in alot of case.
Maybe. But it's not the first time a SCOTUS decision has limited state's "rights" to discriminate. There were states in which it was illegal for gays to marry. The SCOTUS said, "Nope. Can't have that sort of law." Like they said in 1967.
I think yesterdays decision is going to affect more than marriage, unintended consequences.
if a resident of one state can open carry and a resident of another can not, then someone is being discriminated against based on thier state of residence.
The government will tell you what rights you have.

I am not sure there is a such thing as states rights anymore, why should one need a permit to carry arms at all?
