  •  OK, you might have good points supporting your (0+ / 0-)

    view. I'm not sufficiently interested in pursuing the matter further to look at those cases; we can just agree to disagree.

    •  In other words, (5+ / 0-)

      I see you have evidence and established case law cited refuting my argument. I refuse to contemplate your argument any further though because I am disinterested in facts that trump my opinion and will agree to disagree.

      I see this intellectual dishonesty from evolution deniers constantly and it gets my goat here as much as it does in that field.

        I have the same position on this as a (conservative) former SCOTUS chief justice and a Yale Law School professor, so I am hardly the equivalent of an evolution denier. It is simply not worth my while learning any more of the relevant law for the sake of posting a few comments in a diary. If I wanted to write a diary about this, which I don't, I would look into it further. (But every time someone made some claim supporting the individual-light 2nd Amendment interpretation and I did look into it, I was quickly able to find why that claim was erroneous.)

        Another reason why this is not worth pursuing further is that what we are arguing about here is civil religion: what did the Framers really mean? That question has no practical import, because whatever they actually meant, what the 2nd Amendment means as far as the law goes was decided by Heller.
