Dave Kopel's Testimony At Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing

Dave Kopel replaced Fordham Prof. Nick Johnson at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence (sic) yesterday. Below is his prepared testimony before the committee. It also includes Dave answering questions from some senators.

While not as dramatic as the "testimony" that former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords gave, it is a lot more instructive on the issue. Unfortunately, the national media will concentrate on the former and ignore this.

  1. Kopel is a lawyer? Really?

    Several things wrong:

    SCOTUS had no business saying there are limits on 2A rights. The 2A is about limiting GOVERNMENT, not people.

    The machine gun ban IS unconstitutional.

    People-the 2A right we have is a pre-existing, natural right and what our founders believed is that an armed society is to overthrow tyranny!

    Surely Kopel has read the founders' reading!
