I have been waiting for Fordham University historian Saul Cornell to weigh-in on guns and the Second Amendment in the wake of the Parkland shooting. In this piece at “The Conversation” he suggests “five types of gun laws the Founding Fathers loved.”
- Public Carry
- Stand-your-ground laws
- Safe storage laws
- Loyalty oaths
See how Cornell develops these thoughts here.
And then go read his A Well-Regulated Militia: The Founding Fathers and the Origins of Gun Control in America. Cornell is the National Rifle Association’s worst nightmare.
