Saul Cornell interview at Buzzflash
Saul Cornell has an interview at Buzzflash. He sums up his approach concisely: "The state can do whatever it thinks appropriate with regard to handguns. The one thing they can’t do is pass laws which would, in effect, make it impossible for the militia to be armed."
One passage is a bit mystifying, expressing the hope that both sides "will recognize that the right to own guns, although not guaranteed by the Second Amendment, is deeply rooted in American history." As I read his argument, it's that indeed there is a right to arms via the Second Amendment, the dispute is over what laws can be passed to regulate that right, not whether it exists. He may have spoken off-the-cuff, or the reporter may have slipped in transcribing it.
[UPDATE: Prof. Cornell emailed me, the gist of it being that he's there using "individual right" to mean individual right for individual purposes (self defense, maybe hunting), as distinct from "civic right," which I was treating as individual right for civic (militia) purposes.]
