'Embarrassing': FiveThirtyEight says the Second Amendment didn't protect your right to own a gun until 2008

The hottest takes always seem to be reserved for guns, gun rights, and the Second Amendment; consider that President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the ATF couldn’t even define what an assault weapon was before Congress.

Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight has teamed up with ABC News for “Rethinking Gun Violence,” a series “examining the level of gun violence in the U.S. — and what can be done about it.” You can see the video over at FiveThirtyEight, but the argument is that federal courts used to believe that the Second Amendment “protected the rights of state militias to bear arms — not the rights of individual Americans. That all changed in 2008 with the stroke of a pen.”

Again, of course ABC News would eat this up as part of its series examining gun violence.
