I watched the interview, and I am not surprised or disappointed. I was never convinced that the 2nd or any Amendment is without some restrictions. Freedom of speech is not unrestricted nor should it be, and the same goes for the 2nd.

There are people I do not believe should own or even have access to firearms, and some firearms that the average citizen should not have unrestricted access to. I am thinking mostly about full auto and rocket launcher type weapons. Restrictions are required regarding the access and ownership to such weapons.

I do not think the mentally ill should have unrestricted rights re weapons, and agree with age restrictions.
There is a different mind-set among the youth than 50 years ago.

So overall I expected Justice Scalia to say what he did, and am not disappointed.
