An *excellent* article on gun control from a legal perspective: In the National Law Review. I am a retired lawyer and the Constitution means a lot to me. My family attended a rally in Albany last week protesting the NY SAFE act, which we believe violates both the New York and US Constitutions. Whichever side you are on, this is an article worth reading and considering. There is an old saying in legal circles: "Hard cases make bad law." That is what I see happening today. Emotion and outrage are running roughshod over what should be a logical and reasoned process that aims to do the most good while restricting individual rights as little as possible. Instead, we have hysteria and paranoia from both sides. Please give this very well thought out article a read.
