In reading the latest entry in the annals of reasoned discourse, it reminded me of a few key things that are worth pointing out:
* The D.C. v. Heller decision was unanimous (9-0) that to keep and bear arms is an individual right. The 5-4 split was about D.C.’s laws.
* That to keep and bear arms is a right that existed from the get go (“God Given” if you will). All 2A does is state that the government shall not infringe upon it, as a specifically enumerated limit upon the powers of the government.
