OA21: Second Amendment Masterclass, Part 1

PLEASE PLEASE fill out a very brief survey for us!!!

https://survey.libsyn.com/openargs

By listener request, we are bringing you this special “deep dive” episode into the history and jurisprudence underlying the Second Amendment.  This episode was originally broadcast on Atheistically Speaking earlier in 2016.

Just in time for the election, we tackle a thorny political issue:  exactly what does the Second Amendment mean and why?  What kind of gun control laws are permissible that remain consistent with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights?  In this special episode, you’ll not only learn the answer to those questions, but also you’ll discovery exactly how many Second Amendment cases the Supreme Court tackled from our nation’s inception until the year 2008.  You’ll also get to hear Andrew’s definition of what really constitutes “judicial activism.”  We think you’ll enjoy it (even if you’ve heard it before).

As always, we’d love your feedback on this episode.  And stay tuned for Part 2, where we look at the potential future for the Supreme Court on this hot-button issue.
