Incorporation Continued

I'm curious as to how the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Circuits could be suited for 2nd Amendment incorporation, in light of the race to the Supremes possibly taking a long time and subject to obstacles and changes in the weather. We're on the winning streak right now so obviously what we need is more wins while the gettin's good, at very least to stack cases in the pipe for when it's go time. Or at very least I'm just thinking out loud here and this is a good group exercise. Good solutions come from open sourcing.

MD, NJ, and MA are each in different circuits, these as listed. The people I have asked say the 2nd is screwed for the moment because of Maloney, so it's either MacDonald v. Chicago (7th Circuit) getting to the SCOTUS fast or we gotta get some more stuff done elsewhere to make best uses of the momentum, and those 3 states have some issues that need to get fixed...and at very least NJ and MA aren't going to get it done by anything else but legal sledgehammering.

So how about it? Anyone got some good info on this?
