    Arguably, equal protection is better overall, as that is the grounds used to apply 2A protection against the states.

    Equal Protection, the 14th Amendment – isn’t that one of the points/directions of effort that Alan Gura was pushing, relating to incorporation, and that others were pooh-poohing saying the 14th was buried and useless anymore?

    No… that was privileges or immunities.

    Would this technically outlaw “may issue” systems where there is a wide disparity in practice in different jurisdictions, based on some authorities accepting “self defense” as good cause and others refusing same?
