    Post CATO Institute on 2A

    I had heard of these guys and just considered them as one of the countless legions of sheep that had too much time on thier hands until today. I was doing some research on constitutional law and found that these people actually contribute quite a bit to society. The SCOTUS, House, and Senate, even the POTUS takes thier positions under advisement. I have attached some of thier papers.

    You can bet I will be more attentive to what these guys have to say.

    CATO is sort of Libertarian. They don't agree on a lot of neocon-type issues...ie, war and spreading democracy through the world. They're more into small budget, personal liberty, etc. It's not really a partisan organization though, because their agreements and disagreements transcend any party identity.

    They write a ton of amicus briefs and generally contribute a lot to public policy. They have quite a bit of penetration into academia and are a huge anchor for preventing the encroachment of the nanny state. IMO CATO is a good influence generally...although I semi-disagree with them on some issues, it's not to a significant degree.

    Glad you found CATO. When CATO writes on a subject, it's worth the time to read and look up references.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam
