Parker/Heller Unveiled

The landmark Second Amendment case, which I will probably always think of as "The Parker Case," (though it is officially the Heller case), generally affirmed what the founders of the United States intended.

Reason Online has an in-depth look at the origins of the case, the stumbles along the way, and how opponents of self defense, hunting collecting and sports shooting could no longer, in the face of a very real opportunity before the highest court in the U.S., rely on pithy sound bytes to bolster their intellectually bankrupt arguments.

Very well written.
