In today’s Wall Street Journal, Prof. Laurence Tribe stated the D.C. Circuit went “overboard,” that our position is “extreme,” that handgun bans are constitutional, and that Congress can essentially ignore the Second Amendment when legislating for Washington, D.C.This is quite a change from Prof. Tribe’s position in May, 2007. At that time, in correspondence with us, Tribe said he would consider playing a “more central role” in our case, with the aim of helping us appeal to justices he perceived to be centrist and left of center. It’s difficult to see how his current position would accomplish that goal.
