I've been to Britain and I couldn't tell the difference between there and back home, except I don't know anyone who eats beans for breakfast.

Anything about the 2nd amendment would be constitutional law. How much time is spent on constitutional law in law school? I have a nephew who just finished law school. Next time I see him, which will be probably in August, I just might ask him, if I remember (which I probably won't).

There is much discussion here about what the 2nd amendment means. I don't recall reading much about who it applies to. My wife's ancestor, George Mason, who actually thought of it, clearly didn't mean for it to apply to everyone. He had no problem with slavery, so all of those rights we cherish simply didn't apply to them. I'm no scholar and not even a good speller but I don't know what other limitations he may have had in mind with the bill of rights. I even suspect he may not have intended it to apply to women!
