Robb over at Sharp as a Marble discovered someone I just had to invite, one Marc Rubin:
Mr. Rubin:We shall see . . .
I'd never read your Examiner column prior to today, but I have to admit that I was fascinated by your assertion:
"In an earlier article about the 2nd amendment I proved beyond a shadow of any doubt that the 2nd amendment has nothing to do with an individual right to own a gun. And the facts are irrefutable."
You see, I am apparently one of those "many people ignorant of what the 2nd Amendment means" and who insists that it is all about an individual right to own a gun.
And I really, truly enjoy debating the topic with those of opposite mind.
I am the proprietor of a blog, The Smallest Minority, where I invite you to debate this topic with me, in print, in public view. Now, I don't expect to change your mind, or you to change mine, but what I endeavor to do is to put up both sides of the topic, argued by dedicated advocates using reason, logic, and citations so that those still on the fence - the ignorant, as you style them - can be educated and decide for themselves which argument makes more sense on the evidence.
Experience tells me that it takes a bit more than a single 3,500 word column.
I await your reply.
UPDATE to the update: Mr. Rubin finally replied by email on Sunday, July 19. My response is up.
