What Can We Do to Stop Massacres? - Jeffrey Goldberg - The Atlantic: "To talk about eradicating guns, especially given what the Supreme Court has said about the individual right to gun-ownership, is futile."
It is a rather minor point in all of this, but I find it dispiriting when ever someone speaks of a constitutional right this way, that we have it because the Supreme Court says we have it. We have it because the Constitution says we have it. We are so willing to give up our rights to the sufferance of elites and their interpretations. We do not have the right because of their interpretation of the text, but because of the text.
