Good Day for the Bill of Rights

Congrats to Bob Levy, the prime mover behind yesterday’s landmark ruling concerning the right to keep and bear arms for self‐​defense. Congrats also to his legal team of Alan Gura and Clark Neily. And congrats to Eugene Volokh (of the Volokh Conspiracy blog) who had three of his law review articles cited in the majority opinion.
