In this week’s short solo podcast, I talk about the recent Supreme Court decisions on Abortion and Guns. Is Abortion really about the life of the unborn, or is it simply a politically expedient way to promote a patriarchal government? I argue the latter. Regarding guns, why does the Supreme Court ignore the first four words of the Second Amendment: “A well regulated Militia.” Based on the 2008 decision “District of Columbia v Heller,” it appears the court is reluctant to disarm folks for fear that it will result in the destruction of the militia. Meanwhile, mass shootings are committed by people who are not part of any militia. It may be a bit of irony, but I argue that to fix this problem, we turn to the complete text of the Second Amendment, not just the part that says “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
