Heh.  Do we have the next worthless item that fetches big bucks on eBay here?

HOORAY and good riddance!

Mods, I'd call this front-of-the-site gun news!  :)

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]

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.
