DC v. Heller Update

Two recent pieces have been written. One is an excerpt, published on the History News Network, of an amicus brief filed by a number of anti-gun scholars, including the occasionally factually challenged Saul Cornell of the Second Amendment Research Center, John Glenn Institute at The Ohio State University. To read the amicus brief in its entirety, click here.

The second is a view from a columnist in Maryland who suggests the Supreme Court should not just judge the meaning of the meaning of the 2A, but also determine whether Americans have a right to a zone of privacy in their home when it comes to firearms ownership.

Both make interesting reading.
