    "Making a Hash of the Second Amendment"

    "Harvard historian Jill Lepore has a piece attacking gun rights in the latest New Yorker, and a follow-up post on the magazine’s website. Most of it is basically what you’d expect: some numbers about gun violence, some horrifying anecdotes about people who’ve misused guns, some reporting from a gun range, some artsy writing (“a gun is a machine made to fire a missile that can bore through flesh”), and an overarching history of the gun-rights movement.

    More irksome, however, is Lepore’s analysis of the Second Amendment’s meaning. By leaving out or misrepresenting key historical details, she shortchanges the idea that the Second Amendment protects an individual right..."

    Well we had a nice day here in Denver, but no shooting today, as the club was closed for some repair work on the rifle and pistol berms.

    I cut the grass this afternoon, noticed a lot of spring toads jumping in front of the mower. 60 degrees by 2 PM, really nice day.

    This warm weather has got me bugging up. I gotta get my shoulder rehabbed so I get that shotgun out.

    Sunny today in SE PA - wind was up, so it made the targets really interesting.

    Rain due tomorrow...

    Watch out for ticks, particularly deer ticks. I pulled a lone star off my belly button Sunday morning but they are only rarely vectors for Lyme disease.

    Last two days here in northern NY have been miserable. 30's in the PM, 40's in the day, a little snow, some hail, some rain and a cold breeze. Yuck! We want our warm weather back.

    For mrskeet and all others, it might be interesting to know that Miller took the
    first train to no where and his attny. also didn't attend the hearing before the Supremes. With no complaintant, the Supremes could have written the first chapter of War and Peace.
