39. Pools are not "rights" protected by the Constitution...
Restrictions on pools, operation of autos on the public thoroughfares, transportation of hazardous materials, etc., can be restricted because these are not protected by the Constitution. The courts would rightly view any "requirements" for fences, metaphorically or otherwise, as potential means to restrict the Second Amendment; states can, however, restrict the use of firearms as long as they don't violate or infringe the Second and the Fourteenth Amendments.
