New Jersey and gun rights

Just for fun, I was going through the New Jersey State Constitution and comparing it to the United States Constitution, and found an interesting item. In the New Jersey State Constitution there is no mention of guns. There is mention of the militia and how it is formed. But no mention of guns. Then going to the United States Constitution we find that nobody shall be refused the ability to own a weapon. Also in the United States Constitution we find that there is an article that states that anything in the United States Constitution is reserved for the feds anything that is not is reserved to the states and the people respectively.

Now going by that we find that any law that is created by the state on guns is unconstitutional. The state by United States Constitution can not regulate guns. As a matter of fact in the New Jersey Constitution we go to section 1 article 1 rights and privileges, and we read this
-all persons are by nature free and independent, and have certain natural and unalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and of pursuing and obtaining safety and happiness.-

So by all this reading on the constitutions, what have I come up with?  In my opinion the law  in New Jersey that says may issue is unconstitutional .the only permit you need is the Second Amendment.  And the only qualifications are that you are a citizen and not a felon .what will this little missive do ,nothing.  I know some fancy lawyer would put my argument to bed  and provided a  legal argument that would say that everything I’ve just stated is wrong .but that is okay, this was just an exercise in futility  and an exercise for the mind .

As always your comments are welcome.  and this may have seemed rambling , but , I am no lawyer.
