Founding Father in Step with SCOTUS

Judge John Reed, the founder of the Dickinson School of Law (now the Penn State Dickinson School of Law), would have agreed with the Supreme Court in its recent decision, D.C. v. Heller. In 1831, Reed published his Pennsylvania Blackstone, in which he supported the individual rights view of the Second Amendment. For more on this see The Volokh Conspiracy.
