Political Science and Constitutional Law Professor James J. Magee of the University of Delaware wrote a piece in The News Journal in which he claims,
"There is no constitutional right to possess the type of "dangerous and unusual" firepower that killed kindergartners in Newtown."
I can't read his entire piece right now, as the News Journal is denying me access, however from the excerpts at Kevin's Professor Magee has engaged in a thoroughly vapid and intellectually and historically incorrect discussion of the 2nd Amendment.
As some of you know, I majored in Political Science with a concentration in public law. The majority of those law classes were Constitutional Law, and all but one of them were taught by Professor Magee. The other, a Commerce Clause class was taught in the evenings by an adjunct with a day job.
I think I'm going to have to sit down and write my old professor something correcting his many errors. From what I can see he's basically lobbing up softballs, so this should be pretty simple. I mean really? He's claiming the Heller decision overturned Miller, which proves one of two things. Either he has never bothered to read Miller or he's being intellectually dishonest. Miller was a very simple case.
