Updates on Heller
Alan Gura is interviewed by Jurist.
And here's a YouTube interview. A lot of other views are linked there, too. In this interview he responds to arguments he didn't forcefully assert his position. The fact is that there is a distinctive Supreme Court style, which is calm, restrained, and dispassionate. It's not at all like a jury trial, where you are trying to fire up the jury, more like presenting a scientific paper.
And Mother Jones on it. I won't call it leftist, because I know some very pro-2A leftists who can explain their position well in terms of consistency (why disarm the working man while the elite have their bodyguards). The author buys the laughable claim that the 2A stems from the militia, and only got into the Bill of Rights because the slave states wanted to preserve the militia in order to hold down the slaves. Which doubtlessly explains why Sam Adams of Massachusetts was the first to propose adding a right to arms to the constitution, followed by a substantial minority of the Pennsylvania ratifying convention, and then by a majority of the convention in that well-known slave state, New Hampshire.
Then a digression into the 1988 case where black (and VERY antigun and antiNRA) columnist Carl Rowan shot and wounded a trespasser, who was in his backyard hot tub in the night, and was prosecuted for having an unregistered gun: "but the incident fueled a tremendous amount of racial tension in the city..." I was living in the DC area at the time, and cannot recall a speck of "race tension" over the incident. A lot of chuckling, given his antigun writings, but if anyone of any race was tense about that issue, I never heard or read about it. But this being Mother Jones, I suppose a columnist can't take a potshot at a trespasser without somehow creating racial tensions.
