    Stevens is a great man and was was a very good justice. While Heller didn't explicitly overrule prior cases, it's clear that the SC had several opportunities to find a private right to bear arms and bent over backwards to avoid doing so.

    I disagree-its about 99%. Indeed the only ones who disagree are paid hacks in second rate law reviews like Brady Bunch butt boy lawyer Dennis Henigan whose academic credentials are hardly such as to call him a legal scholar

    So you guys will accept what the major of scholors say on any issue, not just your one or my one, but the majority. Is that correct?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Right, it's only the academic all stars who engage in idiotitc pursuits like ranking Supreme Courts as if they were American Idol judges.

    there are three ways around this:

    a. set up computers at police stations where private gun-sellers can look up potential buyers to see if they are kosher.

    b. add information on everyone's drivers license, stating if they are allowed to own a firearm. create a national website where this info can be easily looked up and updated by local authorities.

    c. ban personal sale of firearms. (won't work as you can't enforce it without registration).

    On should never, ever, under any circumstances, be required to prove that he is entitled to exercise a Constitutionally-protected right.

    The burden should always be is on one who wishes to deny the exercise of a right.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Not at all but when liberal conservative and moderates say that the statist collective interpretation is wrong I find it humorous that you ARC members would argue otherwise

    Yes, as I mentioned above. But only in Heller. Never before.

    I was changing gears and noting that almost all academics reject the collectivist interpretation of the 2nd Amendment

    sure, that's fine.

    swipe your drivers license so I can make sure you ain't a felon and have the right to own a firearm.

    or, give me your drivers license number, so I can look it up on the national database.

    instant background check.
