If you want to read originalism unintentionally parodying itself, you should read Clarence Thomas's opinion in the recent "bong hits for Jesus" case about public school 1st amendment rights..
Pretty much said that there were not many public schools in the 1860's when the 14th amendment was adopted, and that, in the few public schools that did exist, the teachers could clout students in the mouth for any behavior so public schoolkids today should not have the 1st Amendment rights discussed in that Iowa case you refer to.
Would be kind of ironic to apply his reasoning to this case since he wants to be pro-gun rights.
