Soooo, in other words, gay marriage has actually been legal since we ratified the 14th Amendment in 1868, but we’re just now figuring that out. It would also seem to imply that if gay marriage bans are unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment, then so are bans on possessing and carrying firearms. Right? Actually, I think I can answer my own question. The U.S. Constitution means what the liberals say it means - no more and no less. It protects the rights that liberals want to protect, but doesn’t protect rights that liberals don’t like.
