Blogging has been light since I'm in DC, hitting the Library of Congress' manuscript collections. Very interesting finds. (1) FDR's Attorney General planned a major push for national gun control, putting handguns back in the NFA (where they had been proposed for listing, but it was edited out in committee) and ultimately going for a permit system modeled on that of Great Britain. (2) Some materials on Dred Scott that I don't believe have been seen before. (3) In the course of looking for that, I actually got to hold and copy a letter by Abe Lincoln. As soon as I get back home I'll put it online.
