The long course of the Second Amendment incorporation debate. On tonight's Civil Rights Roundup, Cam Edwards speaks by phone with NRA Deputy General Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi about the legal background of state constraints on the right to bear arms. He provides a thorough history of incorporation and argues that recent cases such as NRA v. Chicago, which upheld the Chicago gun ban, relied upon nineteenth-century precedents despite a clear Supreme Court directive to conduct more modern analysis.
