At least I’m not “hell-bent on destroying the Second Amendment.”

November 20th, 2013

Last week I spoke at a symposium on the 2nd Amendment at UConn. One of the other Professors, Meg Penrose, suggested that the Second Amendment should be repealed. The Daily Caller picked upon on this presentation, and lambasted Penrose.

I served as a foil, of sorts.

At least one symposium speaker wasn’t hell-bent on destroying the Second Amendment.

Josh Blackman, a professor at South Texas College of Law, observed that gun control laws have a sordid racially-motivated history.

“The first gun control laws were actually meant to subjugate slaves,” Blackman explained, according to CTNewsJunkie. “There has been a very close connection between gun control and racism.”

Here is a video of my talk.
