BTW, the 2A only protected the states and individuals from the Feds. The states, however, could disarm anyone they wished and did so with freed slaves.

Yes, but that may change with Nordyke setting some precedent. I suspect the USSC will have to take up incorporation at some point in time. If we've already got the looney 9th Circuit on board with incorporation of the Second, I like our chances with other circuit courts and the USSC. Still, nothing is for sure when dealing with our court systems.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Samuel Adams.
