Mea Culpa

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Okay, time to fess up and surrender my pride to Steve. The 2nd Amendment debate finally got to me, and I went and talked to my Con Law professor about it. He is probably the smartest guy I know, and is extremely knowledgeable in the field (that, and he's the only person I know that's actually read the entire Heller decision).

He agrees with you; if a case came before the court right now, the court would be more likely than not to incorporate them.

I surrender my sidearm to you, Steve.

(However, he did point out what I've said... there was a reason the court took up a District of Columbia case. It may (emphasis on may) be a case of the court splitting the baby. They affirmed the 2nd amendment as an individual right to keep and bear, but without invalidating scores of gun laws on spec.)

Love the pictures. I have seen a variety of goofy tacticool guns, but never that one.

I eventually read the entire Heller decision, though I admit I skimmed the dissent. I agree that a major reason they tool up that case was to keep it federal and not have to deal with too many laws.

FWIW, I had 3 Con Law prof's. I am guessing here, but one would probably have agreed with this case, one definitely not, and I am not sure about the others.

If guns are outlawed, only conservatives will have guns.

Any questions?

Except for this guy, The Gun Toting Liberal. I read this pretty frequently. He is a little over the top, but entertaining.
