Independence Institute's research director testifies. Cam Edwards rolls the video clip of an intense exchange at Supreme Court Nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation hearings featuring Dave Kopel of the Independence Institute. Kopel dissects Judge Sotomayor's ruling in the Maloney v. Cuomo case, claiming that it upholds a nonsensical ban on nunchucks. He also criticizes the more recent NRA v. Chicago case and calls attention to Sotomayor's "glib and dismissive attitude" to the individual right to bear arms.
