Dave Kopel: Medellin and the Second Amendment

Once again I showcase a Dave Kopel analysis. I've never asked him when we bump into each other each year during the Gun Rights Policy Conference, but Dave Kopel has got to be one hell of a chess player. Like myself, he sees Second Amendment issues "several moves ahead" of the current "game," if you will. Dave has written a tremendous, and disturbing piece, for the Volokh Conspiracy blog. In it, he examines how the Bush administration's argument before the Supreme Court that a President can issue orders requiring the execution of a treaty -- which by its own terms is expressly not self-executing -- has profound dangers for the Second Amendment. Click on the post headline for his full analysis.
