On behalf of Bookworm, I’m reposting her account of an NRO Cruise she’s embarked on . Enjoy!
November 17, 2016
Yesterday, I gave my scattered impressions of the NR cruise First Amendment discussions. Today, given that I didn’t take notes, you’ll get my even more scattered impressions of yesterday’s Second Amendment discussion. Mostly, you’ll get my thoughts based upon what I can remember that they said.
James Lileks was once again the moderator. The panelists were John Yoo, Charles Cooke, Jim Geraghty, and Sheriff Dave Clarke.
To be honest, none of them said anything that I had not already read or thought of myself, but they were witty, funny, and thoughtful. With the exception of Sheriff Clarke, who represented sound common sense, the discussion took place at a fairly rarefied level, with many references to Supreme Court decisions. All of the panelists were extremely grateful that Trump’s win puts the kybosh on Hillary’s loudly stated plan to do whatever she could, primarily with pen and Supreme Court, to shut down the Second Amendment.
