The DC ruling directly applied the 2nd amendment to the D of C.

In the current case, the issue if is the 2nd amenment applies to the actions of a state, thru the 14th amendment. This is, as you mentioned, called 'incorporation'.

It is quite likely that the court will incorporate the 2nd against the states.
