Brother-in-arms Jude Cuddy has been pondering the Heller/Parker case, and considering looming legislation here in Ohio regarding No Duty To Retreat/Castle Doctrine philosophy.
His opinion, from Behind The Berm as always, is straight to the point:
"It is interesting that there are already arguments about the placement of the comma, secondary or subsidiary standards, etc. All of the legal scholars have weighed in on the matter. However, no less an authority than Thomas Jefferson had this to say regarding the Constitution and the Bill of Rights:
"On every question of construction let us carry ourselves back to the time when
the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates,
and instead of trying what meaning can be squeezed out of the text, or invented
against it, conform to the probable one which has passed."
"I see no reason or room to dissect the Second Amendment."
