Notes for Monday – November 07, 2016

We have some sad news; Don Kates, a yeoman advocate for American gun owners’ rights passed away on November 1st. Even the leftist Wikipedia describes him glowingly: “His scholarship and litigation played important parts in the modern renaissance of the Second Amendment. Additionally, Kates played a major role in bringing together scholars and opinion leaders. Along with Stephen Halbrook, Kates deserved the primary credit for making the Second Amendment scholarship an important topic of modern scholarly interest.”
