YEARS AGO, when I was interviewed for an article on pro-Second Amendment scholars for The Chronicle of Higher Education, I was given the third degree by a reporter who found it hard to believe that so many constitutional scholars and law reviews were publishing "pro gun" articles without getting paid by the NRA.

So it's worth noting that antigun scholars and law reviews are getting paid by the Joyce Foundation.

I agree with Eugene Volokh that there's nothing particularly unethical about this. But I also agree that it's worth noting that it's going on, and has been for a while.
