  •  Thanks for your diary on the 2nd Amendment (10+ / 0-)

    While I don't agree with all of it you did a great job in laying out the history for us. Sadly our current SCOTUS doesn't seem to give a damn about that history. And because of that I strongly feel we need to tackle gun deaths from other avenues. Attacking poverty and ending the war on drugs would have huge benefits and not just in reducing the gun deaths in this country. We need to admit to the reality that the 2nd Amendment is Scalia's Holy Scripture and he will never allow an inch of ground against it. And given the current court he automatically gets Thomas and Alito to side with him. So we start with a three justive deficit and if we lose two others it's another defeat in the courts. How many times can we say it, "It's the Supreme Court", and we don't even need the "stupid".

    To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.
