The way I understand it, the declaration in Article IV, Section 2 that "The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States" is a nondiscriminatory provision. It is not a declaration of national P&I that cannot vary from State to State. It merely means that whatever the P&I are in a State, they must be extended to citizens from other States ... for example, I suppose it would violate Article IV, Section 2 if Virginia passed a law saying that people from New York could not possess "assault weapons" in Virginia, but if Virginia passed a law saying that nobody could possess "assault weapons" in Virginia then that would not discriminate against citizens of other States and so it would not violate Article IV, Section 2.
