My PragerU video on the Second Amendment
My PragerU video on the Second Amendment is now out, available here. Special bonus: YouTube somehow decided that the video shouldn't be visible to users who access YouTube in "Restricted Mode"—so it must be extra racy and exciting! If only I could get it banned in Boston. . . .
If you're interested in a more thorough analysis, you can see my old congressional testimony on the subject—or, better yet, review Justice Antonin Scalia's opinion in D.C. v. Heller, which I think does an excellent job of showing that the Second Amendment was originally understood as securing an individual right.
