Rereading the US Constitution

US Constitution

Please, explain this to me:

How can a strict constructionist say that the 2nd amendment cannot be interpreted or used in any way to limit weapon/gun ownership, yet not give credence to the Full Faith and Credit clause, in regard to gay marriage?

If you’re going for a strict literal interpretation, how do you have the right to pick and choose?

2nd Amendment:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Full Faith and Credit Clause (Article IV, Section I):

Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.
