OEDEL: A right to armed revolt?

At his second inauguration, President Obama alluded to his proposed gun violence legislation by mentioning the need to keep “all our children,” including those “in the quiet lanes of Newtown . . . always safe from harm.” Despite the creative argument raised by my former constitutional law student and now-CNN-commentator Erick Erickson in his Jan. 18 Telegraph column about the Second Amendment, Obama’s gun legislation if it passes will probably also pass constitutional muster, even if it seems utterly incapable of keeping “all our children . . . always safe from harm.”
