Wasn't the 9th circuit court quoting this book when they decided it was a state's right, not an individual right?

That would be the Dec, 5th, 2002 ruling on [url=http://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/ca9/newopinions.nsf/661116A4ECB1A7BE88256C8600544DCB/$file/0115098.pdf?openelement]SILVEIRA V LOCKYER[/url] Click on this link to read the full Opinion of the 9th Jerket Court of Appeals.

Actually the Opinion by the 9th only refers to Bellisiles book in regards to the definition of a machine gun (what a machine gun is ). The court doesn't base its opinion on Belisiles work. Reading the foot notes is pretty interesting. I must say...that while the 9th circuit court of appeals does make a good case, I disagree with it and think that their arguement for a collective right is based upon a rather torturous deconstruction of the semantics of the second amendment.
