Gee. I wonder why Professor Stone didn’t mention “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” Does he like only some constitutional amendments? Would the president’s “civil-liberties adviser” pick and choose in this way? How would such selective enforcement be prevented? (Yes, this is the same Geoffrey Stone who tried to explain the partial-birth abortion decision in Gonzales v. Carhart by pointing out—I am not making this up—that the five justices in the majority are Catholic. See here for a smackdown by lawyer-journalist Jan Crawford Greenburg. See here for my own smackdown.)
