Hey Thom

Listening to your 2nd amendment debate the other day. You said the right to keep and bear arms was not intended for protection from the federal government, but I found a publication that says it was. The 3rd edition of "The Meaning of the Constitution" authored by Holder & Holder, makes this claim on page 64. They reference U.S. v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939). I live in Texas, but I am able to listen to your show every day on XM radio (thank God for XM!) and was hoping to hear your take on this claim.

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path?

Democrats must embrace a pro-government platform, not run away from it.

Those were the sentiments of Senator Chuck Schumer today, in a speech given at the National Press Club. Talking about the reasons for Democrats’ losses on Election Day, Schumer said that those losses were proof that the American people and middle-class want a government that will work more effectively for them.
