    the idea that the Constitution exists to serve the needs of society as it evolves recognizes this and is comfortable with this.

    That said, with the caveats about how history at a high level isn't really an objective science, Breyer actually picks out relevant stuff instead of what Scalia does, throw a bunch of historical documents against the wall.  The majority simply didn't engage the question of whether people were speaking of the role guns played in society (freed slaves had to be able to shoot hogs) versus whether this was of Constitutional import.

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
