Title: Strict Scutiny & 2nd Amendment issues
Post by: RMc on July 19, 2019, 08:14:16 pm
Ran across this very readable law review article which argues that minority disarmament thoughout the history of our Republic, is one of the stronger arguments for Strict Scrutiny  in Second Amendment issues. 

Neither short nor excessively long, this well written article is indeed an eye opener!    :coffee

The source, title and two links are listed below.

Liberty University Law Review Volume 11 | Issue 1 Article 10

The Curse of Ham: Disarmament through Discrimination - the Necessity of Applying Strict Scrutiny to Second Amendment Issues in Order to Prevent Racial Discrimination by States and Localities through Gun Control Laws.                                 J. Baxter Stegall

Well reasoned and extensively footnoted.   The practice of disarmament via legislative fiat is as old as civilization.  The fact that it persists to this very day should come as no surprise to anyone.  What is surprising is the number of seemingly intelligent and reasonably well educated people who see nothing at all wrong with this approach to what they consider a problem.
