You know what word doesn't show up at all in Stevens' dissent.


He, and I, never once said Heller overturned precedent. There is a world of difference between overturning precedent and misreading and mistakenly distinguishing precedent. Which is what the majority opinion did.

I get that you want to make it seem like Heller wasn't a shift in the interpretation of the Second Amendment, but it is.
