Gun Guy

Guy talks about an interview he read with Professor Leila Sadat, who is the James Carr Professor of International Criminal Law at the Washington University in St. Louis.

Sadat: “The current focus in the United States is almost entirely on the “rights” of individuals wishing to purchase and wield arms, which they frame as “gun rights” guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the US constitution. I like to say there’s no such thing as gun rights because guns don’t have rights, people do. And that’s not just me being professorial, it’s a fundamental point.”

Guy takes issue with that logic:

The 2nd Amendment is not a 2nd tier right. There is no hierarchy in our bill of rights.
