“[The Heller decision] is an embarrassment to historically informed constitutional interpretation. The idea that the Framers would have thought it should be applied to allow private citizens to carry concealed handguns isn’t intellectually plausible. Clinton should have said so.
At the very least, she should not have conceded that the Constitution properly interpreted requires an individual right to bear arms. It protects the collective right to a state-run, state-regulated militia. And sincerely original justices would overturn the Heller case.” – Noah Feldman in Clinton’s Missed Opportunity on Guns [via bloomberg.com]
