    OSU's Second Amendment Center Runs Out of Ammo [Robert VerBruggen]

    Ohio State University's Second Amendment Center, funded largely by the anti-gun Joyce Foundation, has called it quits. Randy Barnett has details over at the Volokh Conspiracy.

    Barnett argues that the Center closed because its purpose — to argue against an individual-right interpretation of the Second Amendment — was rendered moot by Heller. In NR last year, I detailed how the Joyce Foundation funded law-review symposia on the Second Amendment (subscribers can read my piece here).

    Whatever the Foundation and Center's problems, I found the Center's head, Prof. Saul Cornell, very sincere in his Second Amendment beliefs and very willing to speak about the controversial law reviews. Even if Barnett is correct in his reasoning of why the center closed, I'm not sure it's all that sinister — my piece was before Heller, and I remember Cornell telling me something to the effect that he'd just as soon the Supreme Court resolve the issue so he could move on to other things.

    After Heller, there isn't a whole lot to be accomplished, practically speaking, from studying the history of the Second Amendment (unless you think you can prevent the Amendment's incorporation or dramatically impact its scope). I don't think an academic institution should try to push the debate in a specific direction, but I do think such institutions should focus on topics on which the debate has somewhere to go.

    How Long After McDonald v City of Chicago Will It Be For The Brady Bunch

    Assuming that the 2nd is incorporated with Strict Scrutiny, any guesses on when Brady will close their doors?

    Remember that both Brady's are getting up in years. Jim is 69 (and still seriously injured by Hinkley, being partially paralyzed, and in a wheel chair), and Sarah will be 68 (and a cancer survivor) around the time of the Oral Arguments (Tuesday, 2 February).

    I predict the Brady Center will slowly wither into obscurity as the years pass, but they won't up and quit, as they attempt to redefine, fine tune, and pare the right. There will always be loonies and extremists who can't read the writing on the wall.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Why, because Ohio State's won the last six in a row? It's just a football game.
