A Wisconsin judge who 'gets it' about the right to self-defense

Helmke and Sugarmann both point out that the Supreme Court's Heller and McDonald decisions dealt only with keeping a handgun in the home, and not with carrying firearms in public. That is true, as far as it goes. However, since the Second Amendment has now been found, as a point of settled Constitutional law, to protect an individual right, and that this right is protected from violation by not only the federal government, but state and local governments as well, apparently the Brady Campaign and VPC are arguing that this protection applies only to the "keep" part of "keep and bear arms." That is an odd, and seemingly untenable, position to try to defend. [More]
