    "It would be irresponsible and bizarre to suggest that the Professor Emeritus of History at Northwestern University, Dr. Thomas William Heyck, is in fact a ruthless flying monkey."

    ...and insulting to ruthless flying monkeys!

    And Professor Monkey-Boy wrote that on parchment with a quill pen and had it sent on horseback to the paper, where where the type was handset on the muscle-powered press.

    Guess our history teacher missed the part where the Supremes found that the arms protected by the Second Amendment are those in current common usage: Miller. Of course, by rights, that should mean that we can own regular assault rifles without getting government permission.

    Another over schoolified under educated academic proving that failure as a human is not limited to people who haven't gone to college, but has been perfected by people who have.

    Carl, he didn't miss it. He disagrees with it. And in his world, I suspect that often means that it's clearly wrong . . . but in the big world, if the Professor Emeritus of History disagrees with five Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States on a point of constitutional law, he loses.

    He's not saying that this kind of ridiculous "originalism" is right--though you can't help but notice a sort of admiration for it in his tone--but that it's the logical conclusion of Scalia's originalism, taken to ridiculous extremes. The catch is that he's badly mischaracterizing Scalia's principles.

    You can't get into a discussion on the 'net without some jackass bringing up the identical argument, and the funny thing is each and every one of them think it is totally original with them.

    The Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment after realizing that citizens needed the most modern firearms of the times in order to maintain their freedoms. With that in mind, the citizens of today need the same thing, the most modern firearms of today. So much for this supposedly educated professor.

    Oh, come on, Otter. It can't be that simple! How many Ph.Ds do you have, anyway?
