Imagine the possibilities

So, the Second Amendment has been incorporated via the Fourteenth Amendment, which means “The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.” Therefore, it would be within the power of Congress to pass a law similar to the following:

The US Government and any state government or subordinate entity that requires persons to obtain license, permit, or similar to exercise the right to bear arms must recognize that defense of self as determined by an individual be sufficient, good, or necessary cause to obtain a license, permit or similar to purchase, possess and/or carry a weapon in public by that individual; and that any person who is not prohibited under federal law from purchasing or possessing a firearm must be considered to be “of good character” for the purpose of obtaining any such permit, license or similar.

In short, Congress can and ought to force shall-issue to anyone permitted to possess a firearm; without issuing a nationwide carry permit; similar to the way they have already forced states to issue permits to retired law enforcement.
