The Tea Parties, The Constitution, And You

Interesting essay in the NYT by their Supreme Court correspondent about renewed interest in the U.S. Constitution. Excerpt:

The Supreme Court’s 2008 ruling that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own guns, as opposed to one tied to militias, is another example of a transformation of a conventional understanding, Professor Levinson said, this one based on a view of the Constitution pressed by the National Rifle Association and its politically engaged supporters.

"Transformation of a conventional understanding..."

Ha! It's the reaffirmation of the original understanding...and intent.
