Re: A Historian, a Lawyer, and the Heller Decision
This is interesting. Fourteen professional historians failed to consult a basic resource secondary text written in 1909 about early state constitutions and signed on to a false statement about the incorporation of bills of rights into those early constitutions. Seems unlikely, but I guess it's possible, a phenomenon to be explained by liberal ideology. But perhaps there is something seriously wrong with Thorpe's 1909 work, or perhaps Young is wrong about whatThorpe says?
