In the commentary “We can fix the Supreme Court’s misfire,” Sept. 3, the author blames the National Rifle Association’s money for the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Second Amendment. It is a neglectful but lengthy essay with its main substance being the writer’s belief of his correctness.
What about the legal arguments on the other side of the issue? There is plenty of scholarship available that claims the right to bear arms on which the founders based their thinking had been in existence since the Middle Ages, which probably means, if true, it predates even that. These arguments come from people having credentials at least equal to those of the writer of this commentary.
