I didn’t have time to read it all before I rush off to work, but it looks like really good stuff.

Subject: History News Network article criticizing amicus of professional historians in Heller case
History News Network has published my article severly critical of the amicus brief filed before the U.S. Supreme Court by fifteen professional academic historians in support of Washington D.C.’s handgun ban in the Heller case.
The more people who know about how historically off-base the professional historians’ brief is, the better. Other briefs presenting historical material in support of Washington D.C.’s handgun ban have relied on these completely mistaken historians for their material as well.
