More on the Second Amendment Ruling

The Washington Post has a story today on the plaintiffs in the landmark Second Amendment lawsuit.  Among the plaintiffs interviewed is Cato’s Tom Palmer, who once had to use a firearm in self-defense.

Cato associate policy analyst, David Kopel, recently did a Second Amendment literature survey [pdf]. Take the list and go directly to Amazon!  Buy some for your friends as well.  Come to think of it, it’s the perfect graduation gift for third year law students-especially those who will be going to work as clerks on the Supreme Court next year!

For those interested in a shortcut through all the legal and historical material, I suggest you listen to this Cato briefing–featuring the key players who masterminded last week’s legal victory.
