A Bad Case of Liberty

J. Neil Schulman - commentary on McDonald v. City of Chicago, the Second Amendment case currently before the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court of the United States is the mediator between a nation of potential revolutionary maniacs and an establishment that exists -- no shit, really -- only by their sufferance.

I am not the one making this threat, Chief Justice Roberts. I'm just a reporter. Don't shoot the messenger.

But pay attention. However you decide the balance of power between the federal government and states and localities, it had better have as its object the maximum preservation and protection of what the American people see as their natural and obvious Constitutional rights.

An earlier Supreme Court made a mistake about this once in a case called Dred Scott v. Sandford. Somewhere between 600,000 and 700,000 Americans died because of that mistake.
