Quote of the Day: Ordered Liberty Edition

“We have a gun culture that’s here to stay. Despite decades of violence, including mass killings, the National Rifle Associated has scored numerous legislative victories in the liberalization of gun laws, and the Supreme Court has supported the trend to reverse even modest, common-sense efforts at gun control. ‘It is clear,’ Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote for the majority in as (sic) important 2010 case, ‘that the framers and ratifiers of the Fourteenth Amendment counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty.’ We pay a heavy price for ‘ordered liberty.’” – Dan Rodricks
