First off, I want to thank Ashley Varner from NRA-ILA for taking time out of her busy schedule to come on last night’s episode of Gun Nuts Radio. We spent the majority of the show talking about the upcoming McDonald case, better known as the Chicago Gun Ban Case. The “big issue” in this case is the incorporation doctrine, which essentially means that like the 1st Amendment, the 2nd Amendment applies to more than just the federal government, but to all states and municipalities as well. If the Supreme Court were to decide to incorporate the 2nd Amendment, it would go a long way towards eliminating some of the patchwork anti-gun laws across the nation. Click here for last night’s episode to hear for yourself! Of course, if you’re more the “portable media” type, you can click here for an .mp3 of the show to take on the go with you.
This really was a show that I’d like to see shared across a wide base of people. For casual gun owners, it’s a great 101 level primer on the case coming up before the Supreme Court, and how and why it’s important to them. We also spent a good amount of time discussing the threat that Mayors Against Illegal Guns pose to the 2nd Amendment, and how their lines of attack are rather neatly aligned with the exact things that a win in the McDonald case would prevent. So share the link to last night’s Gun Nuts Radio with your friends!
