Anyone Deny That 2nd Amendment Will Be Incorporated ?

@Setanta,
Well Set; I didn't mean to make a sarcastic comment (although I'm sure it could be read that way).

I was commenting that the USSC referenced Thomas Jefferson, a founding father. While your 'historical figure' was someone (whom I hadn't heard of, and you provided no additional information for me to investigate why I should value his opinion) who wrote on the subject 100+ years later.

I suppose if I had to choose a historical figure to further elaborate on the intention of the founding fathers in writing the 2nd amendment, I'd rather have one of the founding fathers.

I guess, based on this response, that you don't agree. Which is fine. I was merely asking if you gave the founding father any additional weight over your historical figure.

My second question was an honest one; I don't read all of the courts opinions; I didn't know if they referenced someone who simply had an opinion on the founding fathers desires, or if they restricted themselves to the founding fathers expressed viewpoints entirely.

I appreciate how you limited the personal attack to my ability to use sarcasm (even if it wasn't my intention).

News flash for you David, not everything is about you.
I failed to see his name there; so what ? No harm done.

@maporsche,
Well, there was no way for me to know that you referred to Mr. Jefferson. You should keep in mind, though, the first ten amendments to the constitution were part of twelve proposed amendments written by the First Congress. Mr. Jefferson was in France at the time, and cannot reasonably be considered a framer of the bill of rights.

For many decades, I have held him in the very highest esteem n affection.

Well, I 'm not going to impugn your veracity!

you've got a gall to pull crap like that on me, or on anyone else.
I may have GALL, but I had fun with that.

@Setanta,
Good to know, I will investigate the framers of the bill of rights when I have time.

I had thought you were discussing this post of Davids when you made reference to the "current Court...not the only one[s] who can play a game of quoting historical sources." David referenced Thomas Jefferson, I was building on that.

Sorry for the confusion.
