Thanks for taking the time to educate me on this.
(sigh) all those legislators back in 1874 should have passed ANOTHER amendment:
" No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States, or citizens of their own state, or citizens of other states. These privileges and immunities shall include all natural rights which are identified, delineated, inferred, referenced, induced, or deduced by or within the United States constitution and all of its amendments, including future amendments. Just to be clear for the 9 clowns who screwed up the 14th amendment, this means that the restrictions on federal government contained in the first 9 amendments are fully applicable as restrictions on state and local governments as well. The courts shall swallow their pride, get over it, and quit screwing around with the plain language of the peoples amendment."
