Michael Austin Interview — Podcast April 1, 2013

The Second Amendment Doesn’t Mean What the Right Wing Thinks It Does: Professor Michael Austin, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Newman University in Wichita, Kansas, returns to Democratic Perspective to discuss the national controversy surrounding the Second Amendment.

In his book, That’s Not What They Meant About Guns, Dr. Austin explains what the phrase a well-regulated militia meant in post-revolutionary America, and how its eighteenth century meaning conflicts with right-wing assertions about the right to bear arms.
