You're talking about two different things. One is whether the Federal government can ignore criteria for a marriage in favor of their own. They can't and must respect how each State chooses to define those criteria. That's a win for States rights.
Right to bear arms is technically restrictive of what Congress can or technically can't do (can make no law restricting the right to bear arms) but it doesn't say anything about states rights - and with good reason. The more the Feds bow to the states the better, IMO.
