At the very top of the Wednesday night debate was a question about the Supreme court which morphed into a discussion of the Supreme Court ruling on the Heller case which until Hillary answered I thought was about a ban on hand guns in Washington D. C..
You mentioned the Heller decision. And what I was saying that you referenced, Chris, was that I disagreed with the way the court applied the Second Amendment in that case, because what the District of Columbia was trying to do was to protect toddlers from guns and so they wanted people with guns to safely store them.
