If the Second Amendment merely said that

If the Second Amendment merely said that state militias are entitled to have guns, the Framers wouldn’t have bothered. The main text of the Constitution assumes the existence of state militias that can be called up by the president to repel invasions and suppress insurrections. Did anyone doubt that they would be armed? http://ow.ly/ePRd3

Book Chat with City Journal’s Brian Anderson

The other day I sat down for a 10-minute video interview with Brian Anderson,
Editor of City Journal (if you don’t read CJ already, please check it out, it’s a
must-read).   We talked about constitutional law and, naturally, my new
book.   I recommend the video, of course, but also wanted to draw your attention
to the You Tube channel of the Manhattan Institute, which publishes
City Journal, where you can find other interviews, speeches, and the fabulous
videos of our own Andrew Klavan.

How to Avoid the Fiscal Cliff

On Friday (Nov. 9), I was on Fox & Friends talking about the role of the Constitution in the age of Obama.  It’s been estimated that 60 percent of the federal budget goes to programs beyond the federal government’s constitutional powers.   If both parties would simply agree to uphold the Constitution (after all, they took an oath to do so), we could cut federal spending by more than half.   So much for the fiscal cliff!  Unfortunately, Fox did not post a clip of the video, but they do feature my book on the Fox & Friends homepage.
