The American Constitutional Society
is the left wing equivalent of the Federalist Society.
For those of us who believe that the collective rights model is the correct one for the Second Amendment – that is, that the Amendment, properly read, only grants a right to keep and bear arms within the government militia – oral argument in District of Columbia v Heller was ominous. Based on comments at oral argument or previously, I count six likely votes for the individual rights interpretation: Scalia, Thomas, Kennedy, Breyer, Roberts, and Alito.
