148. Please read the dissent and you'll find that Stevens & Breyer recognized RKBA but argued the 2nd was
for the militia. See http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/07pdf/07-290.pdf

The question was not raised on whether if RKBA was not protected by the 2nd as an enumerated right, was it protected by the 9th as an unenumerated right.

A careful reading of Stevens and Breyer's dissents will show that they recognize RKBA as preexisting our Constitution.
