Original Sources Underlying the Second Amendment

With D.C. v Heller ready to go, lots of folks are weighing in on original intend of the Second Amendment. Orin Kerr of the Volkh Conspiracy has posted some great links to some Constitutional Sources for the Second Amendment.


It is going to take me awhile to get through these, but get through them I will.

Could a weak individual right ruling lead to weak individual rights in other amendaments?

Yep, that's a slippery slope that the gun-grabbers either ignore or don't care about.

DC Mayor Fennty and his Chief are really ignorant.

They say crime has gone down there, not true.

Lies,lies, and more lies. They rely on fear, and people buy it.

They care about power only!

MOLON LABE INDEED!!!!!!

It may not directly, but it will empower those with a statist agenda to work even harder toward realizing their goals.

In the comments that I've seen from SCOTUS thus far, it appears that the majority of them do indeed support the premise that the 2nd Amendment means exactly what rational adults have always thought...still waiting to see what they come up with in regards to D.C.'s ineffective handgun ban.
