Excellent Piece in Reason Magazine on the Conservative v. Libertarian Divide in McDonald v. Chicago

June 8th, 2010

Damon Root, one of my favorite writers at Reason Magazine, has written a fantastic piece on the Conservative and Libertarian divide in McDonald v. Chicago. If you are interested in the clash between principled originalists (e.g., Justice Thomas) and faint-hearted originalists (e.g., Justice Scalia) in the context of the landmark 2nd Amendment incorporation case, do read this article.

For more thoughts on originalism andĀ principleĀ in McDonald, see Pandora’s Box, which I co-authored with Ilya Shapiro.
