Gay couples could always enter into the same contracts that straight couples could. They could all get married to someone of the opposite sex. But they didn't want to do that, they wanted to marry someone of the same sex.
Now here is the problem with that. A legal contract that requires a license from a state. Concealed carry is the same thing, a legal contract that requires a license from the state. Many states already have reciprocal agreements with other states but under this same principle, the 14th now allows concealed carry permit holders in Ohio to conceal carry in New York City, Maryland, or anywhere else that makes it inconceivably impossible if not outright bans the act. Furthermore, it means they cannot ban it now either- because it is entering a legal contract that others can enter into the same as marriage.
and before it is somehow claimed it is different, you actually have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. You do not have the same for marriages. There is the problem with this wording.
