Cleveland Plain Dealer editorial: Unconstitutional arms control?
Who's up for a smoke? Because after this article from PD associate editor Phillip Morris, some concealed carry reformers may be ready to buy stock...
The Ohio Supreme Court turns its attention today to guns and begins to ponder what the framers of the Ohio Constitution really meant when they wrote:
"The people have the right to bear arms for their defense and security; but standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, and shall not be kept up; and the military shall be in strict subordination to the civil power." Article 1, Section 4 of the Ohio Constitution.
The first 13 words seem as clear to me as any children's nursery rhyme: "The people have the right to bear arms for their defense and security."
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. What is the interpretive difficulty or confusion with either of these simple declarative statements?
