SINCE PEOPLE SEEM TO LIKE LAW REVIEW ARTICLES, and articles about guns, and especially law review articles about guns, here’s one by Dave Kopel on what state constitutions can teach us about the Second Amendment, and one by Eugene Volokh that also looks at state right-to-arms provisions (and other state constitutional provisions) as a means of understanding the Second Amendment. Finally, here’s one by me on the Tennessee Constitution’s right-to-arms provision, which turns out to be important because the Supreme Court in United States v. Miller (more about that case here) cited an important Tennessee case on the kinds of weapons protected by the right.

Maybe this post will even help answer Aimee’s question.
