Marc Rubin, the New York Obama Administration Examiner, has a new piece up. Previous articles earned him a drubbing from a large slice of the gun blogosphere, but especially from The Smallest Minority*; essentially he argues, over a year after the Heller decision, that the 2nd Amendment does not protect an individual right to keep and bear arms.
You'd think it would pose a problem that the Supreme Court of the United States, the ultimate authority on the Constitution (Motto: "We're not last because we're right, we're right because we're last!") ruled over a year ago that the 2nd Amendment does protect an individual right to keep and bear arms, but Rubin has found that repeating a lie often enough makes it true. Or something.
Now his newest article argues that the 2nd Amendment doesn't protect a right to keep and bear arms because the Thune Amendment failed. Then, in the next paragraph, it argues that it doesn't protect the rkba because there was a vote in the first place. After that, I lost interest in the train wreck and headed back here.
*Absolutely NOT a blog about Emmanuel Lewis or Gary Coleman. I'm as shocked as you are.
