Special Commentary on McDonald v Chicago
From ISRA Counsel Vic Quilici
Victor Quilici gives his analysis of this landmark case, here's an excerpt:
A Supreme Court 5-4 decision raises a red flag as to why four of the Justices could not see what freedom-loving Americans have believed for centuries, and which the founding fathers of our nation perceived as a fundamental, inalienable right deeply rooted in our nationís history, and implicit in the concept of ordered liberty. That right, most scholars have believed, existed before the passage of the 2nd Amendment. The majority made frequent references to the pre-existing right of self-defense, which is the back-bone of the Second Amendment, and there is much to be said about the majorityís dissection of the strained arguments posed by Justice Stevens.
