An offbeat look at guns & gun-banning. I tell of my own development from a capgun-slinging 7-year-old to a liberal-academic gun-banner ... to somebody who knows a little about guns & gun laws and thinks the NRA is not TOTALLY wrong about EVERYTHING. Then historian JOYCE MALCOLM discusses the meaning of the 2nd Amendment & the recent "Heller" Supreme Court decision affirming the individual right to keep & bear.
Malcolm's words are from a public lecture I recorded at the University of Hartford on October 7, 2009. New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "resigned sighs") of community station WWUH-FM, a community service of the aforementioned university.
