Brewer v. State 281 Ga. 283, 2006, The Supreme Court of the State of Georgia declares that the protections guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution do not apply to Georgia

That was taken from the caselaw page on here. I guess they're right however since we don't have any 4th amendment rights extended to us from the US Constitution as well.

Isn't there any legal standing to challenge this under the 14th?

What about United States v. Verdugo-Urquidez, 494 U.S. 259 (1990)?

As part of the ruling, the USSC found "...While this textual exegesis is by no means conclusive, it suggests that "the people" protected by the Fourth Amendment, and by the First and Second Amendments, and to whom rights and powers are reserved in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, refers to a class of persons who are part of a national community or who have otherwise developed sufficient connection with this country to be considered part of that community..."

Further reading on this case sums it up that the court determined the term "the people" means the individuals and that this meaning is applied to the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 9th, and 10th.
