More 2nd Amendment stuff..

I recently read that the NRA is pushing through a supreme court case that will force a decision on whether a state or municipality has the right to trump 2nd amendment rights.

Here are my rhetorical thoughts:
What would happen if a state or municipality were allowed to pass laws abridging any other rights granted by a constitutional amendment? What if Texas outlawed the discussion of abortions? What if cruel and unusual punishments were permissible in New York City? What if police offers didn't require a warrant to search your person or property in Washington?
