The Second Amendment Goes to Court: February 2008 issue of Origins
The Second Amendment Goes to Court by Saul Cornell
Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective is pleased to announce the publication of its February 2008 issue. Origins can be found at http://ehistory.osu.edu/osu/origins/ [the podcast is found at http://ehistory.osu.edu/osu/origins/podcasts.cfm]
Few issues divide Americans as thoroughly and angrily as gun control and the Second Amendment. With the Supreme Court agreeing to hear a Second Amendment case for the first time in almost seventy years, Saul Cornell takes a look at the issues at stake and the history of American interpretations of this Amendment, and offers some thoughts on the outcomes.
Origins is a monthly on-line news magazine published by the Public History Initiative and eHistory in the History Department at The Ohio State University
In each issue of Origins, an academic expert will analyze a particular current issue--political, cultural, or social--in a larger, deeper historical context. In addition to the analysis provided by each month’s feature, Origins will also include podcasts, images, maps, graphs, timelines, and other material to compliment the essay.
