Quote of the Day

Yeah, I know I haven't been posting them daily. Today's is from the Heller case

"The rights secured by the first eight amendments were not conjured at random, but in reaction to specific outrages of the King’s rule. The Second Amendment is no exception. While Petitioners and their amici may not believe that English law secured an individual right to arms for self-defense, colonial Americans certainly did, and it was the repeated, wanton violation of that right that led them to demand and ratify he Second Amendment."

-Alan Gura

I'll have a post about the most recent once I get to read it.
