29. You know little about Constitutional law
There are volumes and volumes of materials in law libraries on almost every section of the Constitution. There are plenty of paragraphs in the Constitution which are open to interpretation. The recent Heller ruling does not "fly in the face of 200 years of SC rulings". The only ruling that anti-gun folks can even halfway point to was made in the 1930s. In that case the lawyer for the defendant did not even show up for the hearing. He wrote a letter telling the SC his client would not pay him so in the SC hearing only the government was represented. Wow, that's a case you can use for precedent. I do support the right of states to have militias. So what. My state has both an organized militia and an unorganized component. That has nothing to do with the right of individuals to have guns for any lawful purpose.
