    law profs debate gun rights

    .



    Stanford Review article about a debate over gun rights between 2 law professors.

    One consistently misunderstands the Constitution, the other is supportive of civil rights.

    Ya gotta love the irony in the line, "Restriction has to be at the core of this right." Does that bozo know what the word, right, means???

    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    +1 I doubt any Austrian economic professors would support gun controls, since they generally don't support government intervention into human action.

    Just for the record, Kilmer was the 2A supporter, Donohue was the anti:

    John J. Donohue is an economist, lawyer, and member of the Stanford Law School faculty widely known for his criticism of John Lott’s book More Guns, Less Crime. Donald E. J. Kilmer is an attorney and an adjunct professor teaching Constitutional Law and Appellate Advocacy at Lincoln Law School of San Jose. Kilmer’s firm handles criminal gun cases and public interest constitutional litigation against government entities.
    As for the statement ""Restriction has to be at the core of this right." Imagine if someone was to say that about 1A, and the likely reactions.
