  1. Enjoyed the interview. I would have been more impressed with Don Kilmer if he could have correctly stated the doctrine ascribed in 1769 by William Blackstone that “the law holds that it is better that 10 guilty persons escape, than that 1 innocent suffer (innocent person be convicted).”

  2. “There is only one policy enshrined in the Bill of Rights. Guns and ammunition in the hands of criminals, tyrants and terrorists are dangerous; guns in the hands of law-abiding responsible citizens are better.”
    Judge Roger T. Benitez, Miller v. Bonta, 542 F. Supp. 3d 1009 (S.D. Cal. 2021)

    “The Second Amendment “is the very product of an interest balancing by the people” and it “surely elevates above all other interests the right of law-abiding, responsible citizens to use arms” for self-defense. Heller, 554 U. S., at 635. It is this balance—struck by the traditions of the American people—that demands our unqualified deference.”
    New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen, No. 20-843 (U.S. Jun. 23, 2022)

  3. As Eric pointed out, there is still the problem of getting intransigent subordinate courts and governments to obey the Supreme Court’s orders in Bruen. Is there even a mechanism to enforce them? What would happen, for example, if a gun owner’s conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court but the government refused to release him from prison?
